Corrie Cring

Chesapeake City Treasurer, VA

Corrie is running for City Treasurer because she believes Chesapeake deserves better. Corrie worked for the current Treasurer, 30-year Republican incumbent Barbara Carraway, for 8 years and witnessed first hand how the incumbent lacks empathy, is out of touch and created policies which only benefitted herself. The current Treasurer has refused to update the city's mainframe program which is decades old and poses a security risk. She has used her office to not only profit personally but to create an atmosphere of fear. The city has lost numerous, talented employees over the years due to the toxic workplace and her mismanagement.

Corrie plans to modernize the current software programs, update online payment methods, and create easy to read bills. She will work to fully staff the office and retain current talented employees while providing them the equipment they need. This will reduce call wait times, transfers and delays for taxpayers. She also plans to implement common sense programs such as streamlined financial assistance for EMS bills and prepayment of taxes to aid those on a fixed income.
