Stephen P. Weber, CPA, was elected Will County Treasurer in 2010. Weber earned his BA in accounting from Lewis University, and was the Deputy Auditor for Will County for 14 years. Weber served as the County Auditor from 2000-2008. He has been a successful small businessman for over 25 years.
As County Treasurer, Steve Weber leads an office of 20 professionals who collected and dispersed more than $1.5-billion in 2009.
Weber’s agenda centers around three points.
The Will County Treasurer’s Office will place the highest priority on the safety of the money it collects and invests. The office will manage money in such a way that cultivates public trust and meets the county’s operating, payroll, capital and statutory disbursement requirements.
The Will County Treasurer’s Office will find cost savings through measurable organizational strategy. We will evaluate improvements in the office on suitability (Would it work?), feasibility (Can it be made to work?), and acceptability (Will it work?).
The Will County Treasurer’s Office will value its role as a public servant. We will treat our customers for who they are: our employers and our neighbors.
Weber sums up his approach in the motto, “We handle the people’s money dependably.”
Steve Weber has received national honors for his work as a certified public accountant. In 2008, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners published Weber’s work on computer fraud prevention. The Government Finance Officers Association honored Weber for Excellence in Financial Reporting and Innovative Accounting from 2000-2008.
Steve and his family live on their farm in Mokena. He is an avid fisherman and hunter, and he donates his time to rescuing injured wildlife. He donates his time as the Treasurer and Board Member of the Boy Scouts of America Rainbow Council, a member of the Exchange Club, and several conservation groups. A fiscal conservative, Weber believes in limited government and treating taxpayers with respect.
