Weber County Clerk/Auditor Ricky Hatch was recently recognized as the 2017 County Auditor of the Year by the Clerk/Auditors Association of Utah (CAAU) . CAAU is a membership organization of Utah’s elected county clerks and auditors that honors stand-out members each year.
Ricky is an active member of the election community at the local, state, federal, and international level. He absolutely loves working in elections and, through his years of public service, he knows the value of a strong team. “The real kudos go to the Weber County Clerk/Auditor team”, Ricky says. “Because they are so good at what they do, I can devote a little time helping to promote activities, issues, and training at the state and federal level.”
In addition to being a member of the Executive Board of the International Association of Government Officials, Ricky also serves on the CTCL Advisory Committee. Fellow CTCL Advisor and Forsyth County Director of Elections, Tim Tsujii adds, "Ricky is most deserving of this recognition. I hold him in the highest regard for his insight and dedication to advancing the field of elections administration.”
From using tech solutions that streamline Weber County staff communication to working with federal agencies to keep elections secure, Ricky is an innovative and thoughtful leader. CTCL is proud to have him share his expertise on our Advisory Committee. Congratulations, Ricky!
