O’Neill’s background a big help in treasurer’s seat

Willa O’Neill graduated from Ohio University in 1971 with a bachelor of science in education. She taught for six years in Portsmouth and Marietta.

In 1986, O’Neill went to work for ODOT as a highway worker in Washington County for 17 years, where she served as district union quality coordinator. Her last 10 years at ODOT she served in a statewide position as a quality program coordinator where she dealt with personnel and she improved the quality of work and the working environment.

With O’Neill’s background and education, I feel that O’Neill is the best choice to fill the vacancy of the Marietta City treasurer. She is efficient and will be a good steward of taxpayers’ dollars and she will have a straight forward approach to the job of treasurer.

As her catchy little saying goes, “Where there is a Willa, there’s a way.”
