In their own words ...Mary Jo Alumbaugh, candidate for Clay County Auditor

Thursday, October 26, 2006

My name is Mary Jo Alumbaugh, and I am the Democrat candidate for County Auditor. My plan for the Auditor's Office is to offer all the citizens of Clay County friendly and cooperative access to the office, assure a good working relationship with all other elected officials and assist the Council and Commissioners in making the best use of the County's financial resources.

I have served as First Deputy Auditor for nearly 20 years under four different Auditors, both Democrat and Republican. My previous work experience includes Customer Service at CBS. Shaker &Shaker Public Accountants, and J.I. Case Company, as a Cost Accountant. Several years were spent at home raising my two children and working part-time as a Tax Preparer in the local H & R Block tax office.

I am a lifelong citizen of Clay County, growing up in Posey Township. I graduated from Staunton High School, and attended Indiana State University and Ivy Tech.

My husband, Rick, and I still live in Posey Township, along with our son Garrett. Our daughter Erica is married. She and her husband, Lance, have three wonderful children, Lydia, Elliot and Sam. We also enjoy traveling and weekend camping in our recreational vehicle. We also participate regularly in short-term mission trips, both abroad and in the United States. Church activities, power walking, reading and spending time with our grandchildren fills most of our spare time.

I am a member of First Christian Church, the Clay County Redevelopment Commission, Brazil Rotary and have served on the Boards of Habitat for Humanity in their formative years, and the Clay County Learning Center.

I feel my experience and dedication make me an excellent candidate for this position, and would very much appreciate the support of the voters of this county in the upcoming election.

-Mary Jo
