Oakland County Treasurer Andy Meisner was elected in November of 2008 and subsequently re-elected in 2012 and 2016 after serving three terms in the Michigan House of Representatives, where he chaired the Commerce Committee and served on the House Tax Policy, Education, Judiciary, and New Economy and Quality of Life Committees.
As Oakland County Treasurer Andy's focus is on preserving the county's prosperity during times of unprecedented financial crisis, preventing mortgage and tax foreclosures that destabilize our communities and threaten property values, and on prudent stewardship and investment of Oakland County taxpayer dollars.
Andy's public-service career began in 1994 as a Lyndon B. Johnson Fellow in the Washington, D.C. Office of Congressman Sander Levin. He also worked as vice president of marketing and communications for a national non-profit organization dedicated to community-based prevention of substance abuse and violence, and as corporate communications director for Farbman Group commercial real estate firm.
Andy earned a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Michigan and a law degree from the University of Detroit-Mercy, and is a member of the State Bar of Michigan. Andy has earned the professional credential of Certified Public Finance Administrator (CPFA) through The Association of Public Treasurers of the United States and Canada.
