Candidate Profile: Heather Penner, Alva City Treasurer
April 2, 2021
I am Heather Penner. I have lived in Alva my entire life. I graduated from Alva High School in 2011. After graduating, I worked various jobs before continuing my education at Northwest Technology Center where I received my Full Charge Bookkeeping certification in 2015. I worked as a bookkeeper for four years. I am currently employed at Community Bank.
My husband Trent Penner and I were married in 2017. I am the treasurer for the Nescatunga Arts and Humanities Council.
A great thing about living in Alva is its people. From the Blessing Boxes to Bank It to Alva Feeding Alva., Alva's citizens are happy to lend a helping hand.
I think the biggest problems the city currently faces are a crumbling infrastructure and its finances. There is no easy fix for these problems. It is important that Alva finds a way to increase its revenue without passing the burden on to its citizens.
