Keith Jones Appointed Treasurer

Congratulations to newly appointed Franklin County Treasurer Keith Jones. Mr. Jones was appointed by the Franklin County Board and sworn in this evening by the Honorable Eric Dirnbeck.

Keith R. Jones, of West Frankfort, has been appointed Franklin County Treasurer. His appointment comes after the resignation of John Gulley who accepted a new post with Rend Lake College.

Franklin County Board Chairman Randall Crocker said Jones is very well qualified and Jones' education played a large role in the decision to bring him on board. Jones graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in 2010 where he majored in accounting and attained a business management degree. He spent the last five years working with the accounting firm of Gray, Hunter and Stenn, a company located in Marion.
Jones will serve out the rest of John Gulley's term, which officially ends with next year's general election.
