Champaign County Treasurer Debate

Watch Laurel answer voter questions. Thanks to UPTV6 for the video.

Champaign County Treasurer candidates are incumbent John Farney (R) and Laurel Prussing (D). Farney was unable to attend the October 17th debate at the Urbana Free Library. Elizabeth Hess was the moderator.

Dear Champaign County Voter,


County government is responsible for the court system, elections, the property tax system, mental health, public health, county highways, the county jail, law enforcement outside the cities, zoning, and long-term regional planning.

The Treasurer's basic role is to receive all revenue, invest, and maintain county funds, and to collect and distribute property taxes for all local taxing bodies.

In these difficult times, we need a Treasurer with the skills to identify financial problems and work in coalitions at the state and national levels to fix those problems. I believe my record of working with others to find solutions for tough problems makes me the best candidate for the job.

I will do a good job for you and would appreciate your vote this November.

--Laurel Prussing
