Born and raised in Anderson, Indiana, Rick Brown has deep roots in Madison County. Brown is a long-time small business owner and entrepreneur, co-owning a computer consulting and administration firm in Pendleton. His wife, Jill, is the president of their children’s school board.
Brown served as the Deputy Treasurer for Madison County from 2012 to 2014 where he helped the office modernize and become more responsive to community needs. In addition to overseeing all employees and learning every aspect of the office, while working as deputy treasurer Brown built a relationship with a third party vendor to ensure that property taxes could be payed online with no additional fee for the taxpayer. He spearheaded the redesign of the treasurer’s website to make it easier to navigate and use. Most importantly, he worked in spite of partisan divides to ensure the office was accountable to the taxpayer first and foremost.
He publicly launched his campaign for Madison County Treasurer on March 29, 2018, asserting that his experience as deputy treasurer and political independence make him uniquely qualified to return to the office. “We accomplished so much while I was in the office, but there is still more we can achieve,” said Brown in his video announcement. “I feel an obligation to the office and my community to offer my experience.”
