Lamb County Treasurer seeks re-election

Jerry Yarbrough has contacted the Lamb County Leader-News, to let the citizens of Lamb County know she is seeking to return to her job as County Treasurer.

“Today, I would like to announce my decision to seek reelection as the Lamb County Treasurer. I would be honored if you would consider trusting me again to be your treasurer.”

“During my current term, I have worked extremely hard to maximize benefits to employees, while minimizing taxes to Lamb County citizens.”

“I implemented a Healthy County Program. This program not only provides valuable information to improve employee health, but also gives benefits to employees such as gift cards and fit bits at no cost to the employees nor the county. As a side benefit, the program keeps health insurance costs down for our county.”
