I am the Treasurer for Genoa Charter Township, Genoa Oceola Sewer Authority, Marion Howell Oceola and Genoa Water Authority and the Assistant Treasurer for the Brighton Area Fire Authority. I love summertime, spending time with my family and watching baseball. My hobbies include photography, playing cards/board games and reading.
I was born in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. My family moved to the Brighton area when I was seven years old and I have been a Livingston County resident ever since. I started going to the Brighton Area Schools in the 3rd grade and graduated from Brighton High School in 1981.
After graduating high school I went to work fulltime for the Southern Michigan News Company, a wholesale book distributor in Ann Arbor, where I worked filling book orders in the warehouse. I later transferred to their Lansing office and was hired into the accounts receivable department. The commute to Lansing got very tiring, especially in the winter months, so I began my search for a job closer to home.
In 1985 I began my employment at Genoa Township doing the bookkeeping and voter registration for the Clerk's office. I was later named Deputy Clerk and remained in that position until November 1992 when I was elected Township Treasurer. After the unfortunate death of the current Treasurer, Margaret Park, the Livingston County Republican Party voted to have my name put on the November ballot to replace Margaret Park, where I ran unopposed for the position. In 2016 I was re-elected by the voters of Genoa Township to my seventh 4-year term.
I married in 1986 to Thomas Hunt. Tom worked for Grundy Ace Hardware from 1980-2016 and was the retail manager for their store located in Howell. In September 2016 Tom lost his battle with Esophageal Cancer. I have two, adult, children.
As your Township Treasurer my duties include, but are not limited to; Collection of real and personal property taxes, keeping an account of Township receipts (revenues) and expenditures, overseeing special assessments, issuing Township checks, depositing Township revenues in approved depositories, investing Township funds in approved investment vehicles, collection of delinquent personal property taxes, responsible for jeopardy assessments regarding the collection of property taxes, and collection of mobile home specific tax.
