Local man announces treasurer candidacy
January 12, 2010
Craig resident Mike Brinks, 59, filed papers Tuesday stating he intends to run for Moffat County treasurer in the November election.
Brinks said he has been a certified public accountant for about 20 years — now at Bonaker & Associates on north Yampa Avenue — and worked as the Moffat County School District finance director from 1994 to 2006.
"I've been the county auditor before, and I audited the treasurer's office," Brinks added, "and I think it's an office that suits me well."
Brinks, a registered Republican since 1972, plans to run as a Republican.
Residents have until Tuesday to affiliate with a political party if they want to participate in precinct caucuses in March.
