County Treasurer

With over 11 year’s experience in the Treasurer’s office, I’m well prepared for the financial challenges of county government. I began my service to Hempstead County residents in 2011 when I was so blessed to be elected your treasurer. As long as I’m treasurer, business in this office will be conducted with integrity, honesty, accuracy, and transparency. Hempstead County has been my life long home. It is a great place to live and I’m proud to be your Treasurer.

The County Treasurer is the disbursement office of the county and is responsible for the custody and disbursement of funds. The Treasurer receives revenue from the Circuit Clerk, District Clerk, County Clerk and Sheriff/Collector, county sale tax collections, state turn back funds, grant funds, fees and fines, and revenues from additional sources. The Treasurer, after receiving this revenue, distributes the money to the county, state, school districts, cities, rural fire districts, and improvement districts and/or according to the law. The Treasurer issues checks and ACH files for disbursement, after the Accounts Payable and Payroll departments have prepared items for payment for our other bills.
