A Record of Fiscal Responsibility and Leadership
Earning the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, Simpson said integrity is a key component in his leadership philosophy. “As the Commander of the Nebraska Air Guard’s finance office, I was ultimately responsible for being a trusted steward of the public’s money. The fiscal management process I led was thoroughly scrutinized annually at the highest levels of government, including Congress. Our public record reflects that never once was our integrity questioned,” he said. "It’s time to ensure the office of Lancaster County Treasurer earns the same status.”
Simpson’s knowledge in government fiscal issues was instrumental to his selection to the National Guard Bureau Financial Stewardship team, formed to ensure the entire National Guard expanded its judicious financial stewardship of federal tax money throughout all its units in the United States.
