Treasurer seeking re-election

Cambria County incumbent running for another term

An Ebensburg resident and current treasurer of Cambria County is seeking to retain her seat for the upcoming term.

Lisa Kozorosky of Buck Road said she is running as a Democratic candidate and noted the accomplishments the office has made while she’s been treasurer.

“I am seeking re-election in order to provide the residents of Cambria County the experience and integrity that the office demands,” Kozorosky said.

If re-elected, the 54-year-old candidate said she wants to continue running the office with an open-door policy and transparency while focusing on customer service. She added she wants to continue implementing computers for the office in order to increase efficiency and productivity.

The treasurer’s office now has a system for electronically tracking dog licenses issued in the county that can be shared with the emergency communications department for various dog law enforcement officers, according to Kozorosky.

She said she and her staff sold more than 21,000 dog licenses and issued 14,000 antlerless deer tags in 2018. She added the staff handles the daily depository and receipting duties of more than 50 county bank accounts in addition to collecting $4.1 million in taxes from Johnstown and collecting hotel taxes.

Since taking office, revenues have reportedly increased by 30 percent.

Before being elected as treasurer in 2012, Kozorosky served as first deputy for 12 years under the former treasurer. She currently serves on the retirement board and multiple committees through the Pennsylvania Trea­sur­ers Association.

The candidate said she is working on her personal commitments to local veteran organizations and the Wounded Warriors Project.

She has an associate’s degree from Indiana Uni­ver­sity of Pennsylvania and is a 1982 graduate of Central Cambria High School.

Kozorosky is married to Dave and together they have a daughter, Mikayla. Their son, Derek, died at age 22 when he was killed during a U.S. Air Force training exercise in Japan in 2011.
