HOWARD — Renee McDaniel has announced her entry into the Republican Primary race for the office of Knox County Treasurer.
McDaniel is a certified public accountant, and holds an MBA degree from Capital University. This education combined with 25 years of experience in the corporate sector provides a strong financial background necessary for the efficient and effective administration of this very important county office.
In addition, McDaniel has always demonstrated a high level of concern and involvement in her local community. She is the president of the East Knox School Board (since 2005), as well as president of the Knox Energy Cooperative Association, and is employed by Dennis & Schisler Inc. since 2003.
“My various involvements have brought me many contacts throughout the state of Ohio, including a number of country treasurers in other parts of the state,” said McDaniel. “My eyes have been opened to many new technological and administrative changes and trends in the world of finance.”
Her experience in the corporate world has equipped her to assess and implement changes that would strengthen and improve the county treasurer’s office, benefit hard working taxpayers, and ultimately help ease the strain on the county.
Cash management, budgeting, and developing strategies for monitoring monthly cash flow balances and predicting expenditures will become critically important in the days ahead as demands increase at the local level. These are areas in which her 25 years of experience can benefit the treasurer’s office.
“The Republican Party has done a fine job in administering this office over the past years. But as we move forward into the 21st century, the time is ripe to streamline some of the procedures of the past and implement current technology, by electing someone who is capable of elevating the office to the next level. As a ‘new face,’ so to speak, I am the candidate best qualified to do that,” said McDaniel.
She lives with her husband of 23 years, Donald, and their two sons in Howard. As a family, they are active in their local church in Danville, as well as East Knox schools.
