Carson City Treasurer Gayle Robertson to seek election for seat

Nevada Appeal staff report

Carson City Treasurer Gayle Robertson announced this weekend she will run for re-election.

Robertson, appointed treasurer in April 2015, by the Carson City Board of Supervisor, is seeking a two-year term starting in 2017. The city governing board appointed her to the office over two others after Al Kramer left as treasurer to assume a post in state government.

“I would like to announce that I am seeking election so that I retain the position and can continue working on the advances made since I took office,” she said in a news release.

Robertson is a certified public accountant with more than three decades of experience in accounting and taxation. She has previously served on the Nevada State Board of Equalization.

She’s a graduate of the University of California at Davis with a bachelors in Economics. She and Bruce, her husband of 39 years, have two sons who were raised in Carson City.

She cited her accomplishments of:

Changing the format of tax bills sent all Carson City property owners to include additional information regarding any penalties, payment and telephone numbers to call with questions.

Editing Carson City’s government investment policy. Changes included correcting references to Nevada Revised Statutes, adding a description of investments allowed when using outside managers, and changing the performance evaluation section.

Creating a spreadsheet for the Board of Supervisors to show activity and results in investment accounts.

Helping in the drafting of a new Carson City ordinance regarding the Downtown Neighborhood Improvement District because the treasurer is responsible for billing and collecting additional maintenance costs resulting from the district and project.

“I feel that my accomplishments will lead to more advances under my stewardship,” Robertson said.

The official filing period is March 7-18. The Nevada primary election is set for June 14. The general election will take place on Nov. 8.
