Fifth generation Coryell County resident seeking treasurer position
Special to Leader-Press
Misti Maxwell Morra, lifelong Coryell County resident is running for Coryell County treasurer.
“My family and I have been active in the community for generations, and as such, I have a vested interest in serving the residents of our county,” Morra said.
Early on in her career, she worked for two local insurance companies, acquiring her state license as a property and casualty insurance agent. After working in the insurance field, she then was hired by CSS, Inc., a local general contractor. During her six years of employment there, she managed the accounts payable department, disbursing funds up to $15 million per year. In addition to the accounts payable, she also computed and processed the company’s weekly payroll, prepared the employer quarterly reports, and handled human resources.
“My extensive work and background in finance along with my dedicated work history for Coryell County has fully prepared me for the county treasurer position I am seeking,” said Morra. “For over 12 years, I have been employed with the Coryell County Juvenile Probation Department where I have been managing the accounts payable and accounts receivable, depositing all money collected, disbursing funds to the current county treasurer and overseeing all victim restitution accounts. I am also responsible for reconciling bank statements, preparing monthly financial reports, and assist in producing the department’s state and county budget.”
Morra said she is running for the position to bring energy and innovation to the office, advance the values of transparency and to connect with respect and dignity to fellow residents.
“With over 18 years of bookkeeping and accounting experience, I am confident to take on the role of Coryell County treasurer. I will be able to combine my past work experience with my dedication and love for Coryell County to ensure it remains financially solid and strong. If elected county treasurer, I vow to keep an open door and open mind to any new ideas brought before me and promise to be accessible and physically present throughout Coryell County,” Morra said. “With your help and vote, you can be assured that I will maintain the county’s financial integrity in protecting our assets, as well as guide our county into the future, and preserve it for the upcoming generations.”
Morra is a 1992 graduate of Gatesville High School and completed her general studies at McLennan Community College. She and her husband, Kevin, have one child who currently attends Gatesville Junior High School and two adult children who live and work in Coryell County.
