Evidently, Friday Harbor Treasurer Wendy Picinich knows a thing or two about finance.
Picinich has been honored for the 22nd consecutive year with the state of Washington’s “Professional Finance Officer Award”, an award handed out by the Washington Finance Officers Association.
The award recognizes individuals for their ongoing education, service and professional excellence in the arena of public finance.

As mayor, I join the WFOA in acknowledging and thanking Wendy for her continued commitment to her position as the Town’s Treasurer.”
