I currently serve as the County’s Chief Investment Officer and manage a $1.6 billion dollar portfolio for the county, schools and special districts. In over 16 years as a public servant, I’ve worked with, negotiated for, or counseled every department in the county. I’ve achieved professional success both as an attorney and finance professional, and I’ve learned many valuable lessons over the course of my career.
I know what it takes to make our government more accountable, efficient, and disciplined. I will ensure that our children, grandchildren, and their children after them have the tools for success and the ability to succeed – and not the legacy of debt that we are leaving them now.
I want to create a county government that protects its taxpayers, works for its families, and makes decisions to benefit those it represents.
It is a great trust that is placed in any elected official who represents our wonderful community. It is a trust that requires respect for the citizenry, humility as a public servant, and is honored by understanding that county government is based on the premise that the people of this county do not yield their sovereignty to the elected officials who serve them. As your Auditor, I will honor this public trust.
Please call me if you have any questions about my campaign for Auditor-Controller. Your thoughts and opinions will always be heard.
Jen Christensen has the integrity and leadership needed to serve as the auditor- controller. She will keep the office independent, safe and professionally managed.
