The Mercer County Republican Party has chosen Sandy Bull for the vacant Mercer County Treasurer position. Republican Chairman Dr. Brian Anseeuw of New Windsor introduced Bull at a Friday press conference. He hopes her nomination will be voted on quickly.
Bull, who is running for Treasurer in November, says she feels she is well qualified for the position and will have no problem working with her election opponent, current deputy treasurer, Bev Lower.
Former Treasurer Mike Bertelsen pleaded guilty to stealing $13,000 in county 911 last week and resigned from office. His term expires December 1st. Bertelsen was elected Mercer County Treasurer five times.
