County FEMA officer seeking County Clerk’s job

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

She has identified a few top priorities that she feels will move things forward once she is elected.
“First and foremost, county officials need to join forces to create a unified and streamlined working environment within and between county offices. Citizens need to know that regardless of which office they walk into someone can either assist them with an answer or direct them to the right place to get that answer. Employees need to be able to work efficiently and effectively,” Anderson said. “In addition, an expertly-trained IT department would provide security for the computer system, while promoting complete transparency in county recordkeeping, budgeting, and accountability reports.”
Anderson said the Clerk’s Office also works hand-in-hand with commissioners to secure equipment and project bids, and works with members of the Rogers County Excise Board to establish annual budgets. She feels confident in her knowledge of these important county functions and said one of her goals will be to produce audits that balance with the County Treasurer’s office.
Her first order of business will be to ask for a complete audit of the clerk’s office.
“County government is the government closest to the people. Every citizen has a voice and that voice should be heard.  The concerns of the people are my concerns,” she said.
“It’s not a secret that I have deep Republican family roots dating back to the 1950’s,” Anderson said. “Rogers County is my home and I want what is best, not only for my family and friends, but for all the hard working men and women, who also own homes, pay taxes and are raising their families in this county.”  
 Anderson is married to Gene, her husband of 39 years, and they have four children and seven grandchildren. She gives back to her community by volunteering in the PAL Mentoring Program in Claremore Public Schools, at Rogers State University, and with Special Olympics. She currently serves as treasurer of the Rogers County Republican Women’s Club and sits on the Lafarge Community Advisory Board. Anderson is also very active in her church with the women’s ministries and church choir.
Two years ago, Anderson ran for the County Assessor’s seat now held by Scott Marsh. She said that experience gave her a greater understanding of the commitment, as well as the challenges involved in public service. 
“I will not compromise my values just to get elected. And, you can be assured, no one will work harder for the citizens of Rogers County,” Anderson said.
