Deputy treasurer Tina Groening, who has worked 9½ years in the treasurer’s office, will be sworn in as treasurer during a courthouse ceremony at 8 a.m. Friday.
She has been deputy treasurer since February and will take the baton after treasurer Susan Berg died Oct. 4 of cancer. Berg left a legacy that Groening wants to continue.
“We want to keep the community served,” Groening said. “Our office is here to help the customers but also do the finances for the county.”
She said she thought her time working under Berg had set her up well for the duties and saw no need to get additional training.
Groening’s swearing-in ceremony will be 8 a.m. Friday on the main floor of the courthouse. A short reception will follow.
She will serve until at least October 2025. The next election for treasurer will be in November 2024, but the person elected then won’t officially begin a full term until October 2025 because the state sets a different cycle for treasurers.
