Who may serve as County Treasurer?
State law does not prescribe any formal qualifications other than being a qualified voter. Every person elected to the County Treasurer's office takes an oath to faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office to the best of his/her ability and furnishes a bond that he or she will faithfully perform the duties of his/her office and account for and distribute all money which the treasurer receives. The requirement of being bonded implies that the person is a qualifying adult and is of sufficiently trustworthy character to secure and provide the required surety bond.
