Amy L. Picray
I grew up in Dolores, Colorado. In 1992 I graduated as the valedictorian of my high school class. In May of 1996, I earned my bachelors of science in Accounting from the University of Wyoming. While attending the University of Wyoming, I met and married my husband, John Picray. After graduation, John and I settled in his hometown of Monticello.
One week after moving to Monticello, I began working as the Tax Deputy in the Jones County Treasurer’s Office. Ten years later I was appointed by the Jones County Board of Supervisors to fill the Treasurer’s unexpired term. In November of 2006 I was elected to my first full term as Treasurer of Jones County.
One of my primary missions, as Treasurer of Jones County, is to provide efficient and convenient customer service through the use of technology. Examples include emailing forms/applications, utilizing the internet to provide information and accept online payments, and acceptance of credit cards or E-checks over the phone. I have been very active in the Iowa State County Treasurers’ Association, and more specifically, my work on the Association’s Web Policy Group has helped to promote and develop the many resources available at www.iowatreasurers.org.
I have two children: Brooke, 12, and Wade, 9. My husband , John, is a hog buyer for Lynch Livestock, and also farms with his brother Jim. We stay busy following our kids and their many activities. In our spare time we enjoy snowmobiling, kayaking, and camping.
I enjoy working as Treasurer of Jones County and ask for your support in my campaign for reelection.
