Re-elect Jan Draper For Marion County TreasurerSociety — Community
|About||Letter to Marion County Voters|
Dear Marion County Voters,
I am Jan Draper, current Marion County Treasurer. I am a lifelong resident of Marion and the youngest daughter of the late Common Pleas Court Judge Robert A. Kelly and his wife Midge. I graduated from Marion Catholic in 1973.
I have been married for 38 years to my husband Dan, a 39-year employee of The Whirlpool Corporation. We have two grown children and five grandchildren.
I am a past member of the Noon Lions Club, a current member of the Moose Lodge, a member of the Township Association, and am active in fundraising efforts for Marion County Special Olympics.
I have a total of 24 years combined experience in the County Treasurer's Office. I began in 1988 as a real estate tax payment poster and deliquent account collector. I also helped with the beginnings of our tax prepay program. In 1991 I became head of the real estate tax department while also being a cashier as needed and backup person for our Chief Deputy. In 2002 I became the Chief Deputy and held that position until elected Treasurer in 2008.
I have knowledge and experience in all aspects of the daily operations of the office.
In my first term as Treasurer, I have diligently watched over your tax dollars. I am a member of the Ohio County Treasurer's Association and regularly attend continuing hours of education conferences as required by the Ohio Revised Code. In the spring of 2011, I hosted the Northwest District Treasurer's Association meeting which gives new treasurers the opportunity to ask questions and seek guidance from seasoned Treasurers. I also had an user-friendly website put in place for people to access information and to link to the real estate tax search site.
As Treasurer I am the chief investment officer and serve as the county banker and collector of taxes.
I serve on the Investment Advisory Board, the Board of Revision, the Budget Commission, and the Data Processing Board.
I have been endorsed again by former United States Treasurer Mary Ellen Withrow, former Marion County Treasurer and Auditor Michelle Pearson, and former Marion County Treasurer Thomas Sheskey.
I am also endorsed by the Marion Democratic Club and the Mid Ohio AFL-CIO Labor Council.
I am seeking re-election because I firmly believe in my job and I want to continue providing efficient and friendly service to the taxpayers of Marion County.
I am asking for your vote for me on Novemeber 6th as Marion County Treasurer.
