Vernon announces Truckee PAC endorsement

The Tina Vernon for Treasurer Campaign announces the endorsement of the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe Political Action Committee.

“After carefully interviewing both candidates it was clear to us that Tina Vernon is the best choice to fill the position of Nevada County Treasurer and Tax Collector,” said Truckee-based committee Chair Mitch Clarin. “She understands the role of the Treasurer, the laws that govern the position, public finance and her role in serving the public.”

The duties of the Treasurer are to act as a bank, cash manager and investor– to keep the Treasury safe until such time as it is needed to pay for services. The County Treasurer does not create the County budget, does not audit, and has no power to affect pensions or pension reform. Subsequently, in the role of Tax Collector, the candidate elected will not determine how much tax you pay and has no authority as to if property tax or other taxes are raised or lowered.

“The Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe PAC based our decision on three things; qualifications, experience, and understanding of the job,” Clarin said. “Vernon also had a keen awareness and knowledge of AB811 which directly effects our industry. Public finance is very different than that of the private sector. Tina Vernon understands that her role, first and foremost, is to protect the Treasury while upholding all applicable laws.”
