Bailey looks to boost treasurer office efficiency
Daily News

Incumbent Crawford County Treasurer Twyla Bailey, 54, will be running unopposed for her third term. A lifelong Crawford County resident, Bailey grew up in Hutsonville and graduated from high school in 1983. She then went on to Lincoln Trail College and graduated with a Secretarial Degree in 1985. Bailey began her career in the county treasurer's office in 1987, becoming the treasurer in January 2010.

In her 31 years in the treasurer's office, Bailey said she has noticed a lot of changes. Most of these changes allow her office more efficient in their duties, and allowing taxpayers an easier and more convenient use of the office.

"Last year for the first time I purchased computers with scanners to be placed at our counter," Bailey said. "It allows us to immediately post the tax payment."

Bailey said she made those decisions to cut back on the amount of refunds and make the office more efficient. This helped especially with the duplicate payments they were receiving.

She also made changes during the tax season, by mailing Reminder Letters two weeks after the second due date.

"I wanted to try this because the cost of a certified notice is now $6.67," Bailey said. "We received great feedback from them and saved almost $1,600 from the previous year."

Bailey also has previous elective experience, winning the race for Robinson Township Clerk in April, 2005. She was then re-elected in 2009.

"I feel very fortunate and blessed to have been trusted to served Crawford County," Bailey said.
