Sam Crain, Candidate for Treasurer
North Carolina Federation
I am announcing my candidacy for the office of Treasurer of the North Carolina Federation. I have been privileged to hold this position for many years having vacated it only to be your Federation President in 2012-2013. I would be honored to serve again and be entrusted with the Federation’s funds.
My NARFE experience has included serving as Smoky Mountain Chapter 1420’s President, Vice President, Service Officer and Sunshine Chair. Recently, I have served as Vice President of the Charles R. Patton Chapter 0156 for the past two years. I also have been a Life Member of NARFE for twenty-one years.
My experience in the Federal workforce has adequately served me in that I have served extensively in the Financial career field. I started my career in the Supply field but was one of the first individuals to convert to the Accounting career field in the Air National Guard. My Federal Civil Service career was as an Accounting Technician, Budget Officer, Data Officer and concluded my 30-year career the last 8 years as the Comptroller, GS-12 for the 164th Tennessee Air National Guard in Memphis, Tennessee. Along with my civilian career, I served 38 years in the military and retired as a Lt Col. My military career paralleled the same positions as my civilian career. I made extensive financial decisions that changed the Comptroller career field for years to come.
I would greatly appreciate your support and vote in electing me as your Federation Treasurer. I would consider it a privilege and honor to serve you another two years.
