Marion County Board Vice-Chair Tabitha Meador has announced that she will seek the office of County Treasurer in the upcoming November 2018 Election. Meador is currently serving her second term as a representative of District 4 on the Marion County Board. She has also served as chair of the County and Community Public Relations Committee during her board tenure, and is a long-time legislative aide to State Representative John Cavaletto.

“It has been an honor for me to serve the people of Marion County on the County Board,” Meador said. “Through my years on the Board, I have seen the demands put on spending taxpayers’ dollars, given the constraints of the economy. I am prepared to meet those challenges as Treasurer. I will continue to fight for the taxpayer.”

In addition, Meador has also worked to resolve the County’s animal control problem. “I’m proud of the gains we have made to get that issue under control. We now have processes in place that allow us to better handle the stray animal problem in the County.”

In addition to her work on the County Board, Meador has been State Representative John Cavaletto’s legislative aide and campaign treasurer for 4 years. She has also been active in the private sector, having co-managed a scrapbook store in Centralia and working as a part time clerk for FMC Water Company for 5 years.

“I’m very proud of the time I have spent working for Representative Cavaletto,” Meador said. “In my current role, I work directly with the public to help folks solve problems they are having with the State. I have also kept the books for his campaign and managed hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years. I believe my private and public sector experiences will serve me well as the next Marion County Treasurer. I’m ready to get started!”
