Troy Rolling Announces Candidacy For Berrien County Treasurer

A candidate has thrown his hat into the race for Berrien County Treasurer. Troy Rolling of Benton Township is seeking to replace former Berrien County Treasurer Bret Witkowski. Witkowski stepped down last month, and former Chief Deputy Treasurer Shelly Weich was named the new treasurer by a county committee. She’ll serve in the post through at least the end of the year. Rolling says he is running for the Republican nomination for the job in the August primary. He tells us the economy is in turmoil because of the pandemic, and this is an “important time for bold and innovative leadership from our next county treasurer, especially when it comes to helping households and entrepreneurs who face challenges with their property taxes.” He says he’ll work with property owners to prevent a rash of foreclosures. Rolling says he has the know-how to be treasurer due to his experience as a business owner. He’s previously run for the GOP nomination for state representative in the 79th District.
