Richard Ramsey for Amherst Treasurer
Richard Ramsey, 35, and his wife are the parents of two children.
If elected, Ramsey says he will examine and correct the problem of entities that are not paying taxes. He said the biggest challenge for the city is to have enough money to pay for the services to its residents to keep those services up to date. As treasurer, Ramsey says he plans to be a good steward of public money by “handling those matters in a transparent and conscientious manner.”
Voters should elect him because of his education, training and experience, he said. While attending Cleveland-Marshall, he studied public administration and business management.
As a small business owner, Ramsey said he has been involved in several organizations with regard to budget and finance administration.
“I am experienced in budget preparation, financial oversight, business management and many other qualities that lend themselves to being an effective city treasurer,” he added.
