“We’re endorsing Democrat Amy Biviano, who is a certified public accountant and has greater expertise in finance than the incumbent.”
– Spokesman Review, October 2, 2014
“In all my 36 years in public finance, I have not seen a more qualified candidate for County Treasurer. I heartily endorse Amy Biviano.”
– Mike Murphy, Washington State Treasurer 1996-2008
“It’s important for Freeman schools that we have a treasurer who is qualified and focused and who provides excellent customer service and communication for our district.”
– Randy Russell, Superintendent Freeman School District
The Spokane County treasurer is the elected official responsible for collecting our property taxes, investing our money, and serving as the last point of review for our smaller taxing districts: fire, water, and schools. As both a mom and a CPA, Amy is passionate about this position because if we get that investment piece wrong, we can’t keep our community safe or keep our promises to our kids.
Our incumbent came to office without a finance background and told us during a debate that “it’s taken [him] four years to learn what the treasurer’s office does.” Spokane can do so much better! We deserve a finance professional with vision and leadership, and Amy Biviano is that person.
Amy plans to reintroduce the policy of making infrastructure loans to fund community investment projects, improving our streets, keeping our money local, and putting our people to work. Spokane needs Amy’s smart, proven policies.
Our primary election is earlier this year, on August 5th! Make sure that you, your family and all your friends vote. We appreciate your support!
Spokane schools have a realistic, stable long range plan for building and technology improvements, made possible by an excellent bond rating. According to Moody’s rating agency, “The district’s underlying Aa1 rating reflects the district’s large and relatively stable tax base, slightly below average wealth measures, sound financial operations, and a manageable debt burden that is anticipated to grow over the near-to-medium term. The stable outlook on the district reflects Moody’s expectation that the district’s tax base will demonstrate continued stability, and its financial operations will remain structurally balanced.”
