CANDIDATE: Jeffrey Mack (Republican)
With experience as an accountant, auditor and controller and currently a partner with Evans and Mack in Indiana, Jeffrey Mack said the position of tax collector “fits my abilities and skills.”
“I looked into it, thought about it, and decided to throw my hat into the ring,” he said.
Mack was an auditor with Ernst & Whinney in Pittsburgh, then was the controller of Rochester & Pittsburgh Coal Co. when it was sold in 1998.
“The position of tax collector really has, of course, a significant aspect of accounting; it’s a receivable system, and those are things that I’ve dealt with throughout my career,” he said. “My experiences have been close to what’s needed for that position.”
Mack said he also has experience running a small business.
“I’ve managed people and worked with people, I’ve had a number of clients in my practice here, I’m used to working with individuals in a business setting,” he said.
If elected, he said he would maintain a full-time office with additional availability near tax deadlines.
“I’ve worked hard, I’ve worked with integrity, and I’ve worked closely and professionally and courteously with my clients, and that’s what I would intend to take into this position,” he said.
Mack has lived in the Indiana area for more than 30 years and is an Indiana University of Pennsylvania graduate.
He and his late wife, Linda Moore Mack, had two children: Meghan and Andrew Mack. Both live in Indiana.
