“I endorsed Chris Slusser because integrity and character matter. Under his leadership the Madison County Treasurer’s Office is performing better for the taxpayers than ever before,” said State Senator Jason Plummer (R-Edwardsville).
“Chris has shown himself to be a great Treasurer and an even greater person. His honesty and hard work are reasons why I highly recommend voters give him their support and keep him in a job that he is doing with great success,” said Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick.
“Chris Slusser is ethical, honest, and sincere,” said State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg). “When he witnessed wrongdoing in county government, he did not turn a blind eye; instead, he stepped forward to report it to law enforcement. As a result, two men were fired by the county board for their wrongdoing and ethical lapses. Now, one of those men is running against Chris for Treasurer. Voters should not reward this bad behavior with their confidence.”
Slusser was appointed as County Treasurer in December 2016. He was then elected to a four year term in 2018. Since taking over, the Treasurer’s Office has been under budget and returned money to the county’s general fund every year he’s been in office. His restructuring of the County’s investment portfolio has generated an additional $16mil over his predecessor and is the top performing portfolio in the state.
Slusser is also endorsed by State’s Attorney Tom Haine, Circuit Clerk Tom McRae, County Auditor David Michael, Regional Superintendent of Schools Robert Werden and 14 Republican County Board Members. In addition, he is also supported by numerous township, city and village officials.
“I’m humbled to receive the support of conservative Republican state, county, township and city officials across the county,” said Slusser. “I’ve committed to running our office with integrity and excellence, and it’s rewarding to see others take notice.”
