Taxpayers have a right to know their tax dollars are wisely preserved.
Transparency in government is rightly expected.
Why re-elect Tim Brophy as Will County Treasurer?
The most valuable skills needed to be an effective Treasurer are knowledge of the real estate transaction, and banking experience. Much of our work involves the unraveling of mistakes that were made at the time of property transfers. Taxes sometimes go unpaid because the parcel was not property transferred from seller to buyer. Understanding the intricacies of these transactions is vital to solving property tax problems.
Investing and managing County reserves occupies much of the Treasurer’s time. Banking experience and relationships are important. Understanding economic movements, pressures, and inputs informs the decisions necessary to invest wisely.
Tim Brophy spent his career in banking and real estate lending. He owned and operated a mortgage company, and he holds an Illinois Managing Broker Real Estate license. This experience directly informs his work as Will County Treasurer.
