For Bremer County Treasurer
I am running for Bremer County Treasurer. Let me start by giving you some information about myself. I am a wife and mother of 4. I have worked in the Bremer County Treasurer’s Office for the last 11 years. My husband is Jim Pratt, he did work at Nestle’s in Waverly up until February 2021 when we were in a car accident and that forced him to be put on disability due to injury to his back and is now raising black angus cows. Our oldest name is Bryce, he is 27 years old and is working for NV Photography and does hair and makeup for photo shoots. Next, we have Madison who is 22 and works for Floyd County Hospital has a lab technician. Our third child is Landon, he will be a senior this year at Nashua-Plainfield and the last but not least our youngest Jalynn will be a junior at Nashua-Plainfield. But before I got to where I am today here is a little back story about myself. I grew up just North of Horton and graduated from Nashua-Plainfield in 1995. I graduated with an Associates degree from Des Moines Area Community College in Management Information Systems.
I have had various jobs in the past from running flexible spending accounts for R.D. Drenkow which is now Advantage Administrators. I then met my husband Jim when he was back for his 20 yr class reunion. I followed my heart and moved to Northwood Iowa and worked for what was Woodharbor Doors & Cabinetry and is now TruStile. I worked in Customer Service. We had various clients all around the United States. After living in Northwood for 7 years, we ended up moving back to the area due to my father-in-laws failing health. This brings me to were I am today. I have worked in the Bremer County Treasurer’s Office for the last 11 years. I started off working strictly in the Driver’s License department but I have since grown to work in all three department which include motor vehicle, property taxes and driver’s license. I have a wealth of knowledge in each department and move department to department. I also know how each of my current co-workers work and I now their knowledge. I am one that is willing to help and work with any of my co-workers to make our jobs run smoother. When we first moved back to the area along with working for Bremer County, I also was the Youth Sports Foundation football program coordinator for 3rd through 6th grade. I was responsible for getting people signed up, fundraising, set up and tear down for the football games. Also, I had to be one to get coaches, workers for the sidelines plus run the concession stand.
I want to run for Bremer County Treasurer’s Office because I believe the citizens deserve to have someone that has the experience of what the office does and how it functions, but also serve the citizens of Bremer County with integrity. I am a person that stands behind my high moral standards. I have what it takes to run the office by working with people and communicate with each employee along with treating them with respect. Along with the office, I know I can do good for Bremer County.
