Bio

Patty moved to Auburn from South Haven, Michigan, at the age of fifteen. After graduating from DeKalb High School in 1976, she began working for the City of Auburn. Her first City position was in Customer Service and Utility Billing. She was promoted to Utility Office Manager in 1998 where she managed the utility office staff and worked under the direct supervision of the Clerk-Treasurer. In 2002, she was again promoted, this time to Utility Operation Supervisor. After much soul searching, she decided to run for Clerk-Treasurer in 2003 and took office in January 2004. Since that time she has been a leader in improving the myriad of City financial operations through technology and policy innovation. In addition, progressive new utility billing and project accounting applications are underway. In her spare time she enjoys walking for exercise, spending time with her son, Cory, and staying involved with the Auburn Classic Lions Club and the DeKalb County Republican Women's Club. She thoroughly enjoys the challenges of serving her community in a political capacity and looks forward to all the technological advances and challenges facing our city.
