Lisa Culpepper Sworn in as New Treasurer

Lisa Culpepper was sworn in as the new Adams County Treasurer Friday, Dec. 14. Culpepper will officially take office Jan. 1, 2019, but was sworn in early due to prearranged travel.

“I’m very much looking forward to helping Adams County, the third fastest growing county in the nation, and the fastest growing county in Colorado, become everything that it’s residents wish and need for it to be,” said Culpepper.

Culpepper is well-suited for the position. She is an attorney and has practiced for the last 20 years, with experience in real estate and business. Previously she worked in Tax Auditing and Compliance and criminal investigations for the Colorado Department of Revenue for nearly 15 years.

The previous Treasurer, Brigitte Grimm, and Culpepper have been working together for the past few weeks to ensure a smooth transition of office operations and no disruption of service to Adams County residents. Culpepper plans to retain Grimm as part of her staff.
