We are Proud and Privileged to Support Shari Freidenrich for OC Treasurer – Click here for Flyer

“As a home owner and resident, I often worry about the future of my community.  I endorse Shari because I know that she is the best qualified person to manage our county’s investments as County Treasurer.  Shari is the only candidate with a CPA and she is the most qualified candidate. I know that she cares about my community’s future as much as I do.  And I know that she will do her best to protect our future.  On November 2nd, vote for Shari for County Treasurer.”  Alfonso Alvarez, Ed.D. (Commander, American GI Forum, Rudy Escalante Chapter)


“Shari has my support for OC Treasurer because of her unique relevant professional experience and her proven ability to work with strong bi-partisan support on behalf of OC taxpayers” (Francisco J. Barragán, CPA, CIA, Commander UMAVA -United Mexican-American Veterans Association).


We know that as the only Elected Treasurer, Shari has a record of integrity and fiscal conservatism.  Shari has invested taxpayer funds prudently, reduced expenses by 15%, streamlined services for citizens and added investment transparency.  Shari has 28 years of financial management experience at two Fortune 500 companies, at Huntington Beach as Treasurer, and has an Accounting Degree.  Making government run more like a business is something Shari has accomplished, and we know she will do so as Orange County Treasurer.

Public Treasurers from across the United States elected Shari Vice-President of their National Association because of Shari’s professional record and integrity.  As Orange County Treasurer, Shari will bring professionalism to the office, protect public funds and hold government accountable.


P.S.  We also support Judge Eileen Moore (Vietnam combat Nurse), for Associate  Justice, Court of Appeal.

As we need Shari to help look after OC’s investments, and to make the department run more efficiently, please consider making a small contribution to Elect Shari for OC Treasurer.

I will be making a small donation (Francisco Barragan); and ask you to consider giving to her campaign in any amount you can . . . please consider sending a check rather than a credit card donation so that Shari’s campaign can receive 100% of the funds.
