Rick has already shown his desire and expertise to help make government more efficient in his current role as Deputy Treasurer of Madison County. In two short years, Rick has worked hard to make that office more taxpayer friendly. Rick was instrumental in working with a third party vendor to create a website for paying property taxes online that does not charge the taxpayer a fee. Rick also completely redesigned the Madison County Treasurer's website to make it easier to use, easier to navigate, and easier to find information that a website visitor may be looking for. Rick has also changed many procedures internally to help utilize technology to make the office more efficient.
