I’d like to express my appreciation to our current Ada County Treasurer, Vicky McIntyre for several things. First, for the stellar financial results that she has delivered to the taxpayers of Ada County I am very grateful. In the 4 budget years she’s been managing the County funds she was expected to earn $1.5 million. She blew through this expectation by an additional $3.5 million, money the county spent but that didn’t have to come from the taxpayers. Under her direction the County investments have been rated as “superior” by FTN Financial Advisors after an audit conducted at the request of the Ada County Commission.
I have been impressed that we have finally had someone in this position who could actually deliver on streamlining County processes. She not only automated several county processes and reduced costs associated with those but she wrote the programs to accomplish that goal. This is just another of her many professional abilities. She is a certified auditor, something that ought to be a mandatory requirement for this job.
At last we have someone in this office that takes the job seriously and didn’t just run for a “political” position. I am honored to have the opportunity to vote for her once more.
