Letter: Vote Kim Good



I support candidate Kim Good for Hamilton County treasurer. Imagine 30 years of experience and all that’s been accomplished. I’ve pulled together a comparison of the candidates, so you can see why I fully support Kim Good and will be voting for her on June 2.  

Kim has 30 years of employment within the treasurer’s office, including 20 years in property tax management; 20 years in State Board of Accounts audits with zero citations; 16 years in investments; 12 years as chief deputy treasurer; eight years as county treasurer; eight years as chief financial officer; five years on the board of Indiana County Treasurers’ Association, where she was recognized as 2010 Outstanding County Treasurer; and two years as a board member of the Association of Indiana Counties.

Through the years, Kim has worked to implement new software or processes within the treasurer’s office.  Some of those would include online payment options, implementing the ability to make payments at local banks, updating the bookkeeping manual processes and the tax collection system which increased the efficiency of the office with minimal staffing.

Her opponent, Susan Byer, was an employee of the treasurer’s office for 13 years, and during this time she was a clerk that filed claims for bankruptcies, answered phones and processed payments.  

Kim Good has the leadership skills and experience to be county treasurerm, so I’m asking you to vote for the experienced candidate and vote Kim Good for Hamilton County treasurer.  

Jennifer Templeton, Hamilton County treasurer
