Lincoln resident Charles "Chuck"
Conzo has made known his intentions to seek the post of Logan County
treasurer in the upcoming election. The post is currently held by
Mary Ellen Bruns, four-term treasurer, who has announced that she
will not be seeking re-election in the upcoming February primary.
In a prepared statement, Conzo said:
I am today announcing my candidacy for the Republican nomination for
the office of Logan County Treasurer in the primary election on
February 2, 2010. I am seeking this office because I believe I can
be an efficient administrator and that I can provide the residents
of Logan County with timely and effective service in this key county
Further, I believe
that my experience in state and local government has given me the
background needed for this office. Briefly, I have twenty-five years
of service with the State of Illinois, most recently seventeen years
as Regional Manager with the Illinois State Lottery. In addition, I
have served on several commissions and committees for the City of
Lincoln, including the Civil Service Commission, the Heritage Days
Commission and the Abraham Lincoln Bi-Centennial Commission. I am a
life-long Republican and currently an elected precinct committeeman
for Precinct 2 in West Lincoln Township.

If elected, it is my intention to use the knowledge and experience I
have gained in state and local government to serve the people of
this county with the best possible level of performance and
efficiency during this difficult period in our history.
I look forward to
meeting the voters of Logan County in the months ahead and
addressing concerns and questions they may have regarding my
candidacy for this office.
Finally, it is my
goal and intention, if elected, to continue the exemplary level of
dedication and conduct in public office that our current County
Treasurer, Mary Ellen Bruns, has demonstrated during her four terms
