Ann Collins wants you to know that she won’t steal and she knows how to count.
A candidate for treasurer in Monroe County, Ind., Collins showcased these bare minimum qualifications in a rather blunt billboard ad.
“I am doing this because accountability, honesty and competence are essential, and I would ensure these characteristics are the foundational qualities of the office,” she said. “Anything less would be a betrayal to my family, my friends and, more importantly, the ones that put their faith in me-the citizens of Monroe County.”
A real estate investor in Monroe County, Collins decided to run after the incumbent treasurer was not allowed to run again because of term limits.
