Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (1)

What "people skills"--both from a public service standpoint and from an office management and leadership standpoint--will you bring to the City Treasurer's office if elected? 
Answer from Douglas W. Shultz:

It is an honor for me to offer my services to the citizens of Escondido as City Treasurer. I am a fiscal conservative for transparent government and offer you the following:

Experience and Investments. 
I have worked in the financial industry for over 10 years and currently run a Wealth Management practice in North County. I have the experience to manage the City's finances with wisdom and prudence.

I have gained extensive knowledge over the past year by working with the Escondido City Treasury Department as a volunteer. I have a thorough understanding of the city's finances and will be able to provide effective guidance and management for the city.

The city's money belongs to the tax payers. I will ensure that the people of the city will be able to have a clear understanding of the city's finances to the fullest extent of the law.

Thank you for your support in November!
