Phillips running for re-election for Anderson County Treasurer

Jason Phillips is running for a fifth term as Anderson County Treasurer.
“Even in this time of crisis, I have never been more confident in the resolve of our community to come through this struggle even stronger on the other side,” he said. “Over the next week, I hope you’ll follow our Facebook Page at and share with your friends and family. Yes, I will be asking for your vote on June 9th in the Republican Primary, but even more than that, I hope the Page can become an extension of our community, a place where we can work together.”
Phillips said, “It truly has been an honor and a privilege to serve my fellow Anderson County citizens over the past years in the place I have always called home, and Lord willing, will always call home. This is the place where I was born, raised, educated, and learned to love the Good Lord the best I could. The place where I became one with my wife of twenty years, Betsy and where I chose to raise my three daughters Lauren, Kimberly, and Regan and where my precious granddaughters Luna and Meredith are making their first steps in life.”
“It has also been a real blessing serving as Treasurer because the duties of the County Treasurer fit well with what I love doing.”
After graduating from Crescent High School, Phillips studied Financial Management at Clemson, graduating in 1998 and later, in 2003, also obtained a Master of Professional Accountancy. Before being elected Treasurer in 2004, he worked for seven years under the tutelage of the experts in the Anderson County Finance Department as the Principal Financial Analyst.
“Since becoming Treasurer, I’ve worked hard to stay at the “leading edge” of government finance,” Phillips said.
He has completed requirements to become a certified public accountant (CPA) in South Carolina. He is a Past President of the South Carolina Association of Auditors, Treasurers, and Tax Collectors (SCATT). Phillips has also advised the South Carolina House of Representatives, South Carolina Senate, and the Governor on financial matters through his membership on the South Carolina Association of Counties Legislative Steering Committee.
“I look forward to hearing from all of you during this challenging period in the history of our county, state, and country,” Phillips said. “Please know that my family, my staff, my church (Flat Rock Baptist), and I are here. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you need anything.”
