DEWITT, MI – The weather is not the only change slowly approaching in Michigan. With the local elections coming up, candidates are trying to prove why they should be considered.  In Clinton County, “the treasurer is responsible for all receipts, disbursements, and investments of County funds.”

Republican Tina Ward is the Clinton County treasurer and is running for this position again.  The responsibilities of the Treasurer include “processing property tax settlements with the 27 local units, collect delinquent property taxes from individuals, performs tax adjustments as instructed by the Michigan Tax Tribunal, the State Tax Commission and local Boards of Review, performs tax searches and histories and issues all dog licenses.”

Democrat Annette Wright is running against the current treasurer.  Wright attended Michigan State University and graduated in 1990, where she got her Masters of Business Administration.  She is also a Certified Public Accountant.
