Dear editor,

My name is Connie Beyersdorff and I am running for the office of Marathon County treasurer. I am a life-long resident of Marathon County, married and the mother of two wonderful boys. I believe I have a number of valuable qualities that I would bring to this position. My experience in leadership positions has demonstrated teamwork, management and financial skills to successfully lead any organization. 

I have a degree in accounting and completing a degree in human resources management, with over 18 years of experience working in positions of administration, accounting, human resources and purchasing, creating lasting relationships with area businesses. I also have seven years of experience with local government as an elected and appointed clerk and clerk/ treasurer. In these positions I have assisted in the development of town and subdivision ordinances, handled deposits of various funds, tax collections, tax assessments, and Board of Review processes, prepared and maintained budgets and all monthly and yearly financial reporting.

I have also worked with the community in various capacities as a volunteer in the after-school programs, leader for fundraising, Cub Scouts Pack leader, as well as holding offices of treasurer, secretary and vice president of various schools’ PTO committees. An active member of a local snowmobile club. In my spare time, I enjoy many outdoor activities with my family. In addition to my enthusiasm, I will bring to the position strong communication skills, training, flexibility and the ability to encourage others to work cooperatively with the department. 

Thank you very much for your time and consideration and I hope I will have your vote for Marathon County treasurer.  Please contact me at 715-370-1783 or beyersdorff.treasurer@gmail.com with any questions.

Sincerely,

Connie Beyersdorff
