Treasurer Dan Welch endorses Farney

It is a real pleasure for me to endorse John Farney to be my successor as Champaign County Treasurer. John has told me how excited he is about the opportunity to be the next Treasurer and I could not be more pleased.


Over the last several years, John and I have worked closely on several issues important to the County. I have seen his commitment to County government, and I have been impressed with his strong work ethic. John is very bright and has done a fine job as County Auditor. The office needed a steady hand and he has provided one. Many of the issues currently facing Champaign County government overlap the Auditor and Treasurer. John will be ready on day one, to step into the Treasurer’s office and get to work.  

After working in the treasurer’s office for nearly 45 years, I know what it takes to be a successful County Treasurer. John Farney has the professionalism and talent to lead the office of the Champaign County Treasurer.
