Amanda (Wells) Mullenix is running for Putnam County Treasurer. A life-long Putnam County resident, Mullenix graduated from South Putnam High School and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University.
Her educational and business experience center around financial management and administration.
Mullenix has been involved with the FFA, and has been the Treasurer and Financial officer for various organizations, including the Alpha Xi Delta and Alpha Eta Corporation Board, a national sorority.
Currently, Mullenix is involved in farm equipment sales, which includes extensive experience working with records, equipment financing and maintaining a business. It is this experience that she will bring to the office of Putnam County Treasurer.
Mullenix believes that it is possible for the County to invest responsibly and use the income to keep taxes down.
She also believes "there is always room to be more efficient. There is no excuse for important state and federal documents not to be submitted on time."
Mullenix hopes to bring a successful financial background and trustworthy business perspective to the office of Putnam County Treasurer.
