Gilpin resident Jean Stull has thrown her hat into the ring for Armstrong County Treasurer.

Stull, a Democrat, announced she will run in the primary election on May 21 for the four-year position.

Currently, residents are announcing their candidacy, but they cannot start collecting signatures on their nomination petitions until Feb. 19, according to Jennifer Bellas, director of elections for Armstrong County.

A minimum of 100 signatures is necessary to file a petition and be placed on the ballot. Candidates can file their petitions between Feb. 19 and March 12, Bellas said.

Currently, there are two other candidates, both Republicans, who announced their candidacy for county treasurer: Wendy Edmonds and incumbent treasurer Amanda Hiles, according to Bellas on Thursday.

Stull is a Leechburg-based CPA and a former board member in the Leechburg Area School District. During her tenure, she served as president and vice president of the board. Stull also served on the ARIN Intermediate Unit Board of Directors and treasurer of the Lenape Technical School Board of Directors.

Stull is a 1987 graduate of Leechburg Area High School and a 1991 Graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She is a life-long resident of Gilpin, where she lives with her son, Charles. Stull is a member of Hebron Lutheran Church in Leechburg, serving as their treasurer for a little more than 20 years.

Stull has been a self-employed CPA since January of 1999 and previously worked as a company controller from 1996-2004.
