The incumbent Fayette County treasurer will seek a second four-year term in that position in the May primary.
Nancy Lee Wilson of Uniontown will make a reelection bid, having worked in the county treasurer’s office since 1979. Wilson succeeded Robert F. Danko as county treasurer in 2014, after previously serving as second deputy treasurer.
“I love my job and always will,” Wilson said.
Wilson’s responsibilities include overseeing the receipt and deposit of all county revenue, chiefly revenue collected from taxpayers. The treasurer’s office also issues dog, hunting and fishing licenses.
Wilson said she is currently updating software that will allow online credit card payments for tax collection, adding that during her tenure as county treasurer, the treasurer’s office has worked well with other branches, including the county controller’s office.
“The office is always busy,” Wilson said. “There’s not a lot of slack time.”
A lifelong resident of Uniontown and graduate of Uniontown Area High School, Wilson has also attended Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, and California University of Pennsylvania.
Wilson said her nearly four decades in the county treasurer’s office has made her familiar with the office’s workflow, and complimented other workers in the office for their dedication to their jobs and each other.
“I believe I’ve proven myself,” Wilson said. “People that know me, they know I don’t play around. They know I work.”
The primary election will take place on May 16.
