Office of the Treasurer Role

Kelly understands the intricacies of the Treasurer’s role:

Throughout her banking career, Kelly has worked with the current Treasurer to help provide options for investable funds.  Under Pennsylvania’s Act 72, legislation requiring financial institutions to pool collateral for all governments and have the collateral held by an approved custodian in the institution’s name, as well as the County’s investment policy, there are certain restrictions imposed upon Public Funds.  Kelly’s experience has provided her a working knowledge of the requirements of Act 72 as well as experience in working within a defined investment policy.

Cumberland County is financially solvent and operates efficiently.  The Treasurer acts as the steward and protector of these funds for the benefit of the residents and programs offered across the County.  Kelly possesses the financial experience to continue to manage these county funds effectively and she is pleased to have the support of the current Treasurer, John Gross, who has dutifully served the County for nearly 40 years.

"Kelly Neiderer will be an excellent Treasurer for Cumberland County. Kelly’s qualifications and experience are unmatched. Our tax dollars will be in good hands with Kelly Neiderer."

-John C. Gross, Cumberland County Treasurer
