The city of London has a new treasurer.
Sue Mosier took the oath of office on July 3. She replaces Jason Schwaderer who resigned from the position on June 26.
The London representatives of the Madison County Republican Central Committee made the appointment. Mosier was one of two people who expressed interest in the position. The other was Michael Norman. The committee members interviewed Mosier and Norman on July 2 and made their selection that same night.
“It was a unanimous vote for Sue Mosier,” said Nick Adkins, committee president and one of the London representatives who voted on the appointment. “We all agreed that she was the best candidate for the position.”
The other committee members who voted on the appointment are Bonnie Hamilton, Bill Long and Bill Mark.
Mosier will serve as treasurer through the end of this year. The remaining two years of the term, which expires at the end of 2021, will be up for election in November of this year. Mosier said she plans to run for election. Petitions for candidacy must be submitted to the Madison County Board of Elections by Aug. 7.
A lifelong resident of Madison County, Mosier graduated from Madison-Plains High School and has lived in London since 1972. She spent 31 years working for the Madison County Department of Job and Family Services, retiring last year as child support administrator. Prior to that, she worked for Huntington Bank for 15 years, where she advanced to assistant branch manager and worked in mortgage lending.
Mosier teaches Sunday school and is on the church council at First United Methodist Church of London. She also serves as secretary of the Madison County Republican Women’s Club. Her husband, Joe Mosier, serves as safety service director for the city of London.
About her interest in filling the city treasurer position, Mosier said, “I’ve dealt a lot with the financial end of things, and it just sounded interesting. I’ve always enjoyed that kind of work and being around people.”
The city treasurer oversees the city’s budget, financial accounts, audits and related financial operations. It is a part-time position.
