For those who don’t know me, my name is Daphne Slusher, and I am announcing my Republican Candidacy for Treasurer in the 2020 Cass County election.

I have lived in Cass County for most of my life and graduated from Logansport High School in 1981.  I have been married to my husband Jerry, for 38 years. He worked in his family business, Slusher’s Garage and Body Shop for nearly 30 years. He is currently a Foreman for the Indiana Department of Transportation.

We have two fantastic children. Our oldest, Jaclyn, is a 3rd grade teacher, and resides in Franklin, Indiana with her husband Clark Wehmeier. Our son Jacob is a football coach at Cornell College and resides in Mt. Vernon, Iowa. Currently there are no grandchildren but we do spoil our grand dog Sally.

I started my working career as a Custard Cuttie at the Sycamore Drive-IN, and then moved on to the Golden Rule as the elevator operator. Later I had an opportunity to move up in the company as a Department head until it closed in 1984.  From there I worked in the office at Woolworth’s and as a clerk at JC Penney’s.  I also gained valuable collection experience when I was employed at Cory & Cory.

After some traveling Jerry and I settled down and started a family. I became a stay-at-home mom until 2004. At that time, I went into banking as a teller and later joined the mortgage department at a local bank.  This is where I became familiar with property taxes and escrow.

Wanting to work with the public again, in March 2013 I became the Chief Deputy Treasurer for Cass County. Over the last six years I have had the opportunity to become accustomed to what it takes to be the Treasurer and work with the people of this community. On a daily basis I have collected taxes, worked directly with Auditor’s office balancing account payable and accounts receivable and acquired training plus guidance from the State Board of Accounts. I love working in the Treasurer’s office and with everyone else at the Cass County Courthouse, I am qualified and trained and look forward to serving Cass County for many years to come.
