Denise Lindsay has been deputy Cache County Treasurer for three years and now she has filed to replace the retiring treasurer Karen Jeppsen so she can keep the job she truly loves. Lindsay is a Republican running against two other Republicans: Stan Norton and Craig McCallister.
The number of candidates will be reduced on April 11 at the Cache County Republican Convention.
On KVNU’s Crosstalk program Thursday, Lindsay defined her job as “the tax collector” and said she feels good when she can help Cache Valley residents with tax problems and the tax process.
People often ask why they can’t get information they need online and Lindsay said she hopes that will happen soon.
“The computer system that we’re using now, I know after April will no longer be supported by Windows XP,” Lindsay said. “So the county’s going to have to move in a different direction.
“As one of my goals as the Treasurer it would be to assist them in guiding towards a more open, user-friendly, free program that people can access online.”
The two candidates with the most votes at the convention will participate in a primary election on June 24. However, if one candidate gets 70 percent of the vote at the party convention, he or she will avoid the need for a primary and will automatically advance to the general election. As there are no Democratic challengers, the race could be completely decided at that time.
