Letter: Let’s end turmoil at treasurer’s office



My name is Jake Madore, and I’m proud to announce my candidacy for Hamilton County treasurer.

The treasurer’s office is an extremely important function of our local government that must follow county and state laws when collecting taxes. There is no room for pushing party agendas nor playing favorites. But, as we have seen during the last few years, these goals are missed when we have the wrong people representing us.

This is why I am running. To be a leader that will seek transparency and fairness for all the taxpayers of Hamilton County. We all want good government. Often, the ideals we place around what good government actually looks like varies between party lines. However, the office of the treasurer is not one of those good government ideals that vary. We all want a treasurer that will faithfully collect and then lawfully manage those taxpayer dollars. That is what I will bring to this office.

For those of you in Hamilton County that may be unfamiliar with me, I want you to know I am a Hoosier first and foremost. I also want you to know that I will place all Hoosier taxpayers above party lines during my term. Meaning, I will faithfully follow all Indiana laws that direct this office and offer the taxpayers transparency and the fairness they deserve.

Please join me to create a better Hamilton County. We can choose to do better and to end the turmoil at the treasurer’s office. Let’s pick the candidate who won’t play politics. Let’s pick the candidate who will make Hamilton County better, for all of us.

Jake Madore, Carmel, Democratic candidate for Hamilton County Treasurer’s Office.
