Back during the primary election I announced that I was supporting Keith Rodenhuis for Orange County Treasurer Tax Collector. Keith was the top vote getter in the primary, and is facing Huntington Beach Treasurer Shari Freidenrich in the November 2nd run-off. Keith writes in his candidate statement “As Orange County Deputy Treasurer I streamlined services with innovative solutions and Strict Adherence to Conservative Fiscal Principles.Â As Treasurer I will use technology to further reduce the size and scope of government.Â I was responsible for my Department receiving a National Achievement Award for our success in modernizing government.”
I wrote the following about Keith Rodenhuis in June.
Treasurer-Tax Collector: Four years ago John MoorlachÂ backed his deputy Chriss Street for the position. That recommendation didnâ€™t work out so well, and Street, having lost a civil fraud suit unrelated to his tenure as Treasurer, has decided not to run. Moorlach has backed Huntington Beach Treasurer Shari Freidenrich for the spot. Streetâ€™s deputy Keith Rodenhuis is also in the race. I know Keith; he is an honest and straight-forward guy. He tells you what he thinks and doesnâ€™t feed you the usual B.S. you get from politicians. While he is a Republican, and we do not agree on everything, Keith is a republican who you can talk to and he keeps an open mind. That makes Keith Rodenhuis my choice for Treasurer-Tax Collector.
In the campaign video below, Rodenhuis talks about the job of Treasurer-Tax Collector, his work as Deputy Treasurer-Tax Collector,Â and what he will do when he is elected. I haven’t, changed my mind since June, and I encourage our readers to vote Keith Rodenhuis for Treasurer-Tax Collector on November 2nd.
