Candidate for Tax Collector | 2019
My name is Michele Nuhn. I am currently the Tax Collector for the Town of Killingworth and am running for re-election this November. Since I am asking for your vote, I would like to tell you about my work experience and my qualifications for the position.
As your Tax Collector for the last 12 years, I have established a record of accuracy, efficiency, and attention to detail. I have always enjoyed working with facts and figures and the public. A graduate of HK High School, I hold an Associates Degree in Business Administration. I am a Certified Connecticut Municipal Collector, which takes three years of classes and on the job training to achieve. In addition, I am taking classes towards becoming a Certified Connecticut Municipal Official. I am currently serving my second term as Treasurer for the Middlesex County Tax Collector’s Association. I have 11 years of banking experience, including management positions at American Savings Bank. I also spent one year working as Assistant Town Clerk, ran a home daycare business for several years and was a preschool teacher at Killingworth Nursery School.
I am a lifelong resident of Killingworth. My husband Todd and I have two daughters, Alexis and Mikayla, who are also both graduates of Haddam-Killingworth High School. I am an active member of our community. I am a former Girl Scout leader and enjoyed volunteering in the classroom when my children were younger. I also served as an assistant religious education instructor for two years.
During my 12 years as Tax Collector, I have implemented several systems which have increased taxpayer convenience and improved back tax collections. I take pride in doing my job efficiently and accurately, which I feel is essential in this position. I am proud to say that Killingworth’s most recent collection rate was 99.344%
I would love to continue serving the Town of Killingworth in the position of Tax Collector.
