Daniels seeks reelection to trustee role

Jack Daniels is seeking another term as Washington County Trustee in the May 4, 2010, Republican primary. The Trustee serves as the treasurer for Washington County.
Daniels, a native of Jonesborough, is the son of the late W.C. “Bill” and Anna Crawford Daniels. He is a graduate of Jonesboro High School and a graduate of East Tennessee State University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and business administration.
He has several years experience in finance and accounting in both private industry and government. His experience includes taxes, budgeting, general accounting and auditing. He has served 24 years as Trustee.
When he sought the Trustee post in 1986, he stated, “The office will be operated in an efficient and professional manner.”
Daniels believes this promise has been fulfilled. The Washington County Trustee’s office is committed to providing quality service at the lowest possible costs to taxpayers.
Daniels considers his efforts to keep idle county funds invested as an important accomplishment, pointing to over $12 million in interest earned. He has also earned over $12 million in excess fees which is applied to the county general fund. This represents savings in tax dollars to Washington County taxpayers.
The office has received over $1 billion in county revenue during the past 24 years. As evidenced by the annual audit, every dollar has been accounted for.
Daniels is married to the former Eva Palmer of Jonesboroug. They are the parents of adopted children, twin sons Tim and Terry, and daughter Mrs. Jason (Kim) Miller. They have two granddaughters, Syndie Paige Clark, 18, and Phoebe Miller, 10, and one grandson, Brady Miller, 7. They are members of the Church of the Brethren. He is an Army veteran and has served in various civic and professional organizations.
