As the former Chief Deputy Treasurer under Kurt Prenzler, I have the education and experience of operating the Madison County Treasurer’s Office for Prenzler, and his resume includes a Masters in Business Administration and all Illinois CPA education requirements.

The current county treasurer has no financial, business, or accounting education at the college undergraduate or graduate level. His education is in law enforcement, where he was a SIUE campus cop for only 2 years and he has raised the county treasurer’s budget 22% in just over a year, from $714,000 to $873,000, to levels not seen since Fred Bathon was in office.

“My record of running Madison County Government and the Madison County Treasurer’s Office is with a flat budget, making up for rising payroll costs by lowering other administrative expenses,” Hulme says. “And unlike the current treasurer, I will not hire unqualified employees or relatives of Madison County public officials. When you are collecting and investing over $500 million a year, a management team of high school graduates isn’t going to cut it for me. We deserve better.”
