We share ideas, discuss common issues and not so common issues and then we talk about them and brainstorm, said Sabree. Its always good to interact and exchange ideas and talk about what were doing because we may find a solution to our problems just in the conversation.  (Photo by HB Meeks/Tell Us Detroit)

My visit has been amazing, we met with the county commissioners, and Im here because of the camaraderie with the treasurer and everything that he offers as Im going down the same path, said Brooks Sullivan.


In addition to being the Ohio Franklin County Treasurer, Brooks Sullivan is an avid volunteer, community servant, and military veteran. Since 1980, to the present time, shes been heavily involved in building strong management and enhancing administration. In the future, she plans to continue to share her experiences with Treasurer Sabree and his staff.

We jointly bounce ideas back and forth with each other, we have about the same size operation as far as population and surrounding counties, explained Brooks Sullivan. So, we just go back and forth to discuss what Im doing new in my office and what hes doing in his office and coming up with best practices.

We share ideas, discuss common issues and not so common issues and then we talk about them and brainstorm, said Sabree. Its always good to interact and exchange ideas and talk about what were doing because we may find a solution to our problems just in the conversation.

During the tour, Brooks Sullivan met with Wayne County Commissioners, executive staff, and Westland Mich. city councilwoman, Tasha Green.
