Newly elected Frontier County Treasurer, Carleen Crawford has taken over the reigns for Judy, and in two years will have to run for re-election for her position as Treasurer.
Carleen added, “I believe I grew into my job as Treasurer.”
Leslie was highly recommended for the position of Deputy Treasurer where she will sit under Carleen’s mentoring, just as Carleen sat under Marcile Nelson and Judy Hosick’s mentoring as Deputy Treasurer.
Carleen came to Frontier County when she was three, where she was raised. She and her husband, Wayne have three children: Son, Brandon Crawford (Department of Roads Mechanic, Ainsworth, NE), his wife, Kristy, and their two daughters, Karliegh and Riliegh; Son, Devon (US Marine, Camp Pendleton, San Diego, CA.), and his wife, Nicole; and their daughter, Carmon (all Points, Eustis, NE). Carleen and Wayne live on a farm ten miles south of Stockville, where Wayne raises cattle and farms.
Carleen Crawford has worked at the Frontier County courthouse since 1993 as a clerical. Carleen began her journey with Frontier County by typing Fair Books for the Ag Society of Stockville. She worked with the current treasurer at the time, Marcile Nelson.
When an opening came, Carleen was invited to take it. It was a part-time position. Since then her positions and responsibilities kept growing from there.
Carleen became the deputy treasurer when Judy Hosick was elected to Treasurer in 2003. Judy Hosick has recently retired midterm, which brought forth the need to open the position to interviews.
Some of Carleen’s goals while Treasurer of Frontier County are to maintain a good working relationship with the community, and keep money flowing between the county and state.
With all the new responsibilities Carleen is taking on she feels that Judy trained her well, and she feels confident, even with the challenges ahead of her.
