Ratering will seek second term as treasurer

St. Joseph County Treasurer Judie Ratering has filed for re-election for a second four-year term.
Ratering recently submitted to the county clerk’s office paperwork with enough signatures to be on the ballot in the August primary. Sturgis resident Gwen Donmeyer has also declared her candidacy.
The 56-year-old Ratering was appointed by a statutory committee in February 2012 from a pool of eight candidates after former county treasurer Phyllis Bainbridge retired. Later that year, Ratering was elected as county treasurer.
A Park Township resident and Mendon High School alumna, Ratering started her career in the treasurer’s office in 1990, where she worked as a deputy treasurer for more than 11 years. She left for the private sector before returning to the county post in 2012.
The position currently pays about $69,000 annually.
