County Comptroller Bonnie Lindaw Approved as County Treasurer/CFO
County Comptroller Bonnie Lindaw will succeed Jane Lugo as Treasurer/Chief Financial Officer effective September 1, 2012. Lindaw was nominated by County Executive Dennis Levinson to fill the position upon the retirement of Lugo who has been employed with the county for 24 years, the past four of which she has served as Treasurer/CFO.
“Atlantic County is grateful for Jane Lugo’s dedicated service and fiscal management. Under her supervision Bonnie Lindaw has risen through the ranks with experience in accounts payable, payroll, grants management, and as the County Comptroller since 2008,” stated County Executive Dennis Levinson. “I am confident our conservative fiscal policies which have helped us earn 12 consecutive flawless, independent audits will continue during Bonnie’s tenure.”
Lindaw is a graduate of the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey with a Bachelor’s degree in business and has been employed with the county since 1990. She was certified as County Finance Officer in March 2012 and currently serves as President of the New Jersey Association of County Finance Officers.
As past practices indicate, Levinson prefers to promote from within. In June he appointed Deputy Warden Geraldine Cohen as warden following the retirement of former warden Joseph Bondiskey, making her the first female to hold that position in Atlantic County. And earlier this year he named long term Mosquito Superintendent Bill Reinert to succeed former Public Works Department Head Harry Tillett upon his retirement.
