According to a press release published by Sweetwater Now:
Sweetwater County Treasurer Robb Slaughter has announced that he will be seeking re-election in 2018. “The next few years will be a period of growth and change here in Sweetwater County, and I would like to continue as an integral part of it”, Slaughter said.
“I am running based on the belief that I can continue to manage the Office of Treasurer in a professional manner and provide the level of service that the residents of Sweetwater County deserves and have come to expect. With the help of my “outstanding” staff and the support personnel at the county, we have continued to streamline services and have been able to offer new technologies to help make things easier for our residents.
We have continued to refine the services that we have implemented in the last few years to allow taxpayers to make payments online for both property taxes and motor vehicle licensing. With my influence and experience, I hope to help legislators provide new innovation that will continue to keep us on the cutting edge of technology in the future also”, Slaughter added.
“It is a constant challenge adapting to the dynamic changes occurring in Sweetwater County and the State of Wyoming,” Slaughter said. “The nature of our mineral-based economy makes it difficult to budget and provide cash flows to fund our local government in an efficient manner. These challenges and the task of managing an investment portfolio of various funds and for different entities that is over $50 million keeps the job interesting and creates unique challenges which I enjoy.”
