My favorite thing about living in Finney County is all the economic and cultural growth. We really are a melting pot, and that's pretty beautiful. It's such a unique place to live and work.
|When Trista learned of the County's need for a Treasurer, she submitted her resume to the Republican Committee. The Committee selected her out of three candidates to fulfill the rest of the former Treasurer's term. Trista was sworn in on January 17th, 2019. She will officially run on the ballot for the position of Finney County Treasurer in the November 2020 general election for a four-year term.
I wanted to get involved in local government because I think that's where the most important changes are made. I grew up here and I'm raising my family here, so I have an interest in making our community the best it can be.
The Treasurer oversees tax collection and all things to do with titling and tagging motor vehicles. Trista currently supervises and supports nine employees in her office between the tax collection side and the Motor Vehicle Department, and she's considering adding a 10th position. She plans to continue moving forward with the changes the former Treasurer began implementing, while evaluating as they go.
I value our citizens' time. My goal for this department is to streamline the processes so that we can be more efficient, giving the taxpayers a higher satisfaction rate, and taking care of their business as quickly as possible.
Trista comes to us from a service-oriented industry and feels that public service to the County is a natural progression for not only her career but her passion, which is to work for her community.
