If she is elected to continue in her position, Hunter said she would work on “modernizing” some of the processes in the treasurer’s office to make things more efficient. “I come from a technology background and there’s a lot we can do to automate things in the office that have been done manually in the past,” she said.
While the county treasurer is seen as an analytical position, Hunter said she also has a creative side — her undergraduate degree is in art. “I think some of that creates good structure and kind of a well-rounded person,” she said. “In my spare time, I do like to create art”
Hunter grew up in Jefferson County, and moved to Carbondale in 1999, according to her online bio. She’s a member of the Carbondale Rotary Breakfast Club, Women United Network, and enjoys volunteering throughout the community.
