Letter: David Rickert has served with distinction

By on January 21, 2010

As County Auditor, my office works closely with the County Treasurer in the county’s bill payment process. David Rickert, CPA, has served with distinction as County Treasurer since 1998.

His accomplishments are many and include:
• Consistent operation of his office under budget
• Established an investment bond fund that yielded over $400,000 during the first year of operation
• Reduced the risk of check fraud by implementing positive pay check disbursement
• Facilitated property tax payments by installing a 24-hour drive-up drop box and implementing a credit card/e-check online payment system
• Assisted with transparency in the property tax cycle by participation in the development of property tax guide and tax exemption information.

David Rickert has been honored by his peers as Illinois Zone IV County Treasurer of the Year. I have known Mr. Rickert to be an ethical professional and deserving of another term in office. Please join me in support of David Rickert as Treasurer in the Republican Primary on Feb. 2.
