Chris Cutler for Polk County Treasurer

4977734B-72A4-4199-B41B-687DBD71751C_edited.jpg

 

I was born and raised here in Des Moines, Ia.  I attended Grandview University and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration, Finance and Accounting (cont).

 

I have served the tax payers of Polk County for the last 10 years working for Polk County Government, 7 of which have been in the Polk County Treasurers Office working under the late Polk County Treasurer Mary Maloney.  I was elected and served as Union Treasurer for AFSCME Local 1868 from 2013 - 2021.  During that time, I played an active role as a steward and was elected to represent my bargaining unit in contract negotiations between the Union and County.

I have also served on the Planning & Zoning Commission for the City of Des Moines where I enjoyed interacting with the public on a more local level.  In 2014, I was elected to the Polk County Credit Union Board as Audit Chairman which serves the employees of Polk County Government and the 5th Judicial District.  Currently, I work as an Accountant for the Polk County Auditor’s Office in the Central Accounting Division.

My entire career has been dedicated to PUBLIC SERVICE and it is far from over.  Serving the residents of Polk County is my calling.  I have acquired the knowledge and skills to turn the Treasurer's Office into a more effective and efficient department to better serve you, the taxpayers.
