GREENSBORO – Candidate Forum: NC State Treasurer and County Commissioner
January 26 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
North Carolina’s State Treasurer and County Boards of Commissioners – including Guilford’s – are partners on many issues, including access to health care, educator compensation, and infrastructure projects ranging from school facilities to water/sewer systems and transportation networks. Every infrastructure bond approved by Guilford voters ultimately gets authorized and issued by the Treasurer’s Office. Educators’ salary supplements come from the County Commission, while their health and retirement benefits are managed by the Treasurer’s Office. Every state and local public employee in the county also has their pension savings with the Treasurer’s Office. Decisions and policies made by the Treasurer’s Office and the Guilford County Commission will directly affect the costs that we pay at our hospitals, the strength of our local economy, and whether we meet our roughly billion-dollar school construction needs.
