Clerk-Treasurer Cordell receives 22nd consecutive financial award


FISHERS – For the 22nd consecutive year, Fishers Clerk-Treasurer Linda Gaye Cordell has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting (CAFR) award given by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for her comprehensive annual financial report.

“Gaye’s commitment to excellence, integrity, and professionalism is outstanding.  Fishers residents are well served by their Clerk-Treasurer,” said Fishers Town Council President Scott Faultless.   “To receive the prestigious CAFR award for twenty-two years in a row is remarkable.”

The CAFR is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting.

An impartial panel judges the reports to ensure reports meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,000 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL, and Washington, D.C.

Linda Gaye Cordell has been the Fishers Clerk-Treasurer since 1981.
