Sue Nash Jones has won a full term as Westmoreland County's treasurer.

Jones ran unopposed for the post to which she was appointed in January, netting nearly 2,900 votes.

"The people of Westmoreland County entrust the Treasurer to take care of their money, and that is one of the greatest trusts that can be given to an individual," Jones said. "I am both humbled and honored by the confidence the citizens of Westmoreland County have placed in me. I will serve Westmoreland County as their Treasurer to the best of my ability for the next four years."

Jones was appointed to the treasurer's position when incumbent Treasurer Martha Beale Wilkins resigned.

"I came into this position with a love of accounting and making figures balance," Jones said. "I get this from my mother who was a banker. I will spend hours tracking down a penny on an account that does not balance."

Before her appointment, Jones was a Judicial Legal Assistant to the Judge George Mason III.

Prior to that Jones served as the Northern Necks's General Receiver for 10 years and as a certified Chief Deputy Clerk in Richmond County for 15 years.

Born and raised in neighboring Richmond County, Jones moved across the county line to Westmoreland 30 years ago.
