Today Carbon County commissioners recognize retiring treasurer Ron Sheehan for his years of service to the county, his friendship, and his sense of humor.

Ron Sheehan has performed the elected duties of county treasurer for twenty years. He began his career in banking before serving Jim Thorpe borough council as vice president. Prior to treasurer, Sheehan served as accountant and fiscal deputy in the Carbon County Controller’s Office. The Jim Thorpe native is also known for his service to the community holding various positions for a number of clubs and committees.

"It's been a tremendous journey and as I start the next phase of my life, that being retirement, I take with me a lot of fond memories, so thank you all for recognizing my service."

During his time as treasurer, Sheehan upgraded the computer system of the license bureau and treasurer’s revenue systems. He also oversaw the county employee retirement program and hotel tax collections, which have tripled since the tax was created.
