img 0601 copyPatrick Cohn Jr., a lifelong resident of Grant County, is seeking election for the Office of Grant County Treasurer in the upcoming 2020 county elections.

He is a graduate of Cobre High School (2001) and continued his education, first at NMSU in Las Cruces and then finishing up his Bachelor’s Degree in General Business at Western New Mexico University in 2012. This degree emphasized finance principles. He then continued his expertise in banking by attending the Western States School of Banking at NMSU and received a Bank Diploma for his efforts.

Patrick has 16 years of community banking experience, the whole time working locally first at AmBank and then taking a job as Assistant Vice President at another local bank. It is at his current place of employment where he supervises the Customer Service Department and serves as a Loan Officer.

On a personal note, Patrick has been married to his wife, Desiree, for 16 years and together have raised four children, ranging from 10 to 18 years old. The Cohns have made Grant County their home and have lived in Silver City the whole time. They have had opportunities to move out of the area, but have decided the people, scenery and serenity of the Grant County area is too much to give up.

Without the support of the community, his family, wife and children, Patrick knows running for the Office of Grant County Treasurer would not be possible. Patrick is personally invested in the local community as he is currently a member of the Silver Schools Board, serving as the Secretary of the Board. He is also President of LULAC Council 8003 and is Secretary on the Board of Directors of El Refugio, Inc. Patrick also supports many other community activities as he is well aware by supporting all these different community functions, he can do his part in making the Grant County community a better place for everyone.

Grant County, especially the residents, has been an integral part of Patrick’s life and he is very excited to have the honor and opportunity to run for the Office of Grant County Treasurer. When elected, Patrick will continue to use his banking and finance background to strengthen the Treasurer’s Office, with an emphasis on friendly, knowledgeable and courteous customer service being the backbone of his tenure. He will also strive for the smooth and efficient operation of the office and while maintaining honesty, integrity and transparency.

Patrick looks forward to a challenging, good and clean campaign in the months ahead. Patrick thanks his family, his wife and especially the community for this opportunity.
