02-21-04: Two seek Republican primary nod for treasurer’s position


Two candidates will be vying for the Republican nomination for the seat of county treasurer in the March 2 primary election.
April Bowersock, 44, 18931 Ohio 501, Wapakoneta, and Pamela Crisp, 54, 20971 Middle Pike road, Wapakoneta, have both decided to run for the spot being vacated by Jenny Pitchford, who will step down and retire after completing her fourth term this year.
Bowersock is married and has two children. She has not held any previously elected offices.
“I was interested when I heard the existing treasurer was retiring,” Bowersock said. “I wanted to wait until my children were a little older and more independent.
Bowersock currently works in the financial department at Perry Corp. in Lima. Her resume boasts 18 years of finance experience and 25 years managerial experience. Past job experience includes taking care of payroll, investing, and managing million dollar-plus portfolios and banks.
Bowersock said she would attempt to make the public more familiar with county finances and make records more easily accessible.
Crisp is married and has two grown children. She has held two separate elected positions previously, as St. Marys city auditor from 1984-1997 and a member of St. Marys City Council 1981-1983. Crisp works in the county auditor’s office where she processes payroll and handles benefits for county employees.
Crisp said her experience as city auditor gave her the experience necessary for the treasurer’s position. She has experience in accounting and financial reporting, auditing, budgeting and fund accounting.
“I decided to run for treasurer because I enjoy working for the county,” Crisp said. “I like dealing with people.”
The winner of the primary will win the seat because no Democratic or indpendent candidates have filed to run for the seat.
