Shawna Jackson Cancer Benefit

Shawna and her husband Randy were married on August 2015, their son Keegan came along in April healthy and happy.  Shawna works for the Medina County Animal Shelter.  Shawna had a persistent cough during her pregnancy which was blamed on the pregnancy, but the cough continued after the birth of Keegan.  Shawna has never smoked, but has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which has already spread to her brain.  The family asks for help removing the financial burden on this young family, so they may focus on the medical battle.  Donations can be made for the Randy and Shawna Jackson family at any First Merit Bank or at a GoFundMe account that has been set up in her name.  Click HERE to link to her page.

MEDINA COUNTY TREASURER JOHN BURKE TRAINS THE NEWEST PORTAGE COUNTY TREASURER, BRAD CROMES

 

Medina County Treasurer, John Burke, welcomed newly appointed Portage County Treasurer, Brad Cromes to his office in the Administration building on Tuesday, March 24th, for professional training.

“Every new county treasurer has to shadow a seasoned, experienced treasurer from a different County as part of their required hours for development.  I was honored that Treasurer Cromes chose me,” states Burke. Training topics included duties, responsibilities and the importance of cash management of half billion dollars of the public’s money in Medina County. “We work very hard to provide wonderful customer service - as well as have a family environment here in the office,” Burke continues. “It’s an important job being the banker for the County!” 

Portage County Treasurer Brad Cromes, was appointed on February 11th, 2015 and must complete 26 hours of training certified by the State Auditor and Treasurer--either by shadowing an existing experienced county treasurer and/or obtaining accreditation from a professional association. Treasurer Cromes selected both routes. 

He chose Treasurer Burke as his mentor after researching backgrounds of numerous county treasurers. Burke had a very professional background—MBA, experience with a CPA firm, and CFO of the A.I. Root Company. “His experience in both private industry and government offered great perspective on how our office can work with both” said Cromes. 

One of Treasurer Cromes’s goals for his Portage County office is to improve technology and productivity—two issues that were a priority of Treasurer Burke’s strategic plan which his office accomplished in 2012 with a new website and online tax payment options.
