As County Treasurer, one of my main goals is to ensure that residents of Union County receive the highest level of service possible while being a good steward of the taxpayers trust and finances.  If you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to contact me directly Andrew J Smarra at (937) 645-3085 or by email at asmarra@co.union.oh.us

As County Treasurer, I am entrusted with the County's finances and am responsible for the daily balancing of the monies in the County's 200+ funds.  I am also the County's Investment Officer, managing an average portfolio of $45 million.

I serve on numerous boards as required by the law, including the Data Processing Board, Investment Advisory Board, Board of Revision and the Budget Commission.

Over the years I have seen the County's rapid growth.  This growth has caused a tremendous increase in the work load at the office and I am committed to increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the office's operations.
