Republican Bill Warren, of Geneva, has announced his candidacy for the Geneva office of clerk-treasurer. Warren has served as clerk-treasurer for the last three years.
"The Town of Geneva, along with other local units of government, has seen a significant decrease in revenue due to the current economic conditions, and the property tax caps." said Warren in making the announcement. "It has been a challenge to provide services the community requires with less revenue. By selectively addressing the costs of operation, we have been able to continue to provide police and fire protection, and street maintenance with minimal impact. This focus on costs needs to continue going forward."
Upon graduation from Purdue University, West Lafayette, with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management, Warren went to work for CTS in Berne. During his time at CTS, Warren said, he held a variety of management positions. After CTS closed the Berne operation in 2006, Warren worked for Red Gold in Geneva until he was elected to the Geneva office in 2009.
Warren is a member and Past Master of Decatur F&AM, on the board of Adams County United Way, and secretary of the Adams County Regional Sanitary Board.
Bill and his wife Susan have lived in Geneva for 26 years. They have two children and two grandchildren.
Warren stated, "If I am reelected by the Citizens of Geneva, I will continue to pursue cost reductions in all phases of the local government. I will also continue to search and apply for grants when practical. My goal is to make sure the local taxes paid by the town’s residents are spent wisely by the town."
