Teresa Glenn is the Democratic incumbent candidate for Greencastle city clerk-treasurer in the Nov. 8 municipal election.

First elected in 2003, Glenn has served as the full-time clerk-treasurer since 2004 and is seeking her third term.

The clerk-treasurer serves as the city's chief financial officer, performing the essential functions of bookkeeping, auditing and money management.

Glenn said she and her team have worked "very hard to reduce unnecessary expenses with regular internal audits."

"I believe that my career in public service has taught me to be resourceful, as well as creative, when dealing with hardships and budget issues," Glenn said. "We, as a city, have tough times ahead of us; I believe my ability to be innovative and proactive will aid the city in continuing to provide essential services without raising taxes."

She said her office has saved "many thousands of dollars" in health insurance, other insurance costs, copier rental, phone and miscellaneous expenses. Salary expenses have been reduced, she added, by consolidating duties in the Utility Office and Clerk-Treasurer's Office.

"My goals have always been to make informed decisions that are in the best interest of the citizens that elected me," Glenn said. "My office will continue to be available to the public. As we move into 2012 with the Stellar Grant opportunities, my experience, knowledge and leadership is vitally important to the operations of this community."

A lifelong resident of Greencastle, Glenn graduated from Greencastle High School and attended Indiana State University and St. Mary of the Woods College.

She and her husband, Denny, are members of Greencastle Christian Church. They are the parents of three grown children and have one grandson. As the daughter of Dale and Dona Pierce, Glenn is the fifth generation of her family to live and work in Putnam County.

Glenn serves on the Police and Fire Pension Boards, is an officer of the Indiana League of Municipal Clerk-Treasurers, and a member of Indiana Association of Cities and Towns.

She is also the finance officer for the Citizens Advisory Committee for Industrial Development and has been in the banking and financial industry in many different capacities throughout her career.

Glenn is a member of the Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce.
