The Progress-Index Weekend - - OPINION -

Brit­tany Flow­ers is a na­tive of Ettrick, Vir­ginia, and cur­rently re­sides in the his­toric city of Peters­burg. Her ties to Peters­burg are strong, as she made pre­cious memories as a young child with her grand­par­ents (Pratt & Griffin fam­i­lies), who were also res­i­dents of Peters­burg. Ms. Flow­ers ma­tric­u­lated through the Ma­toaca school sys­tem, grad­u­at­ing in 2003 and later grad­u­at­ing from ECPI Tech­ni­cal Col­lege, where she re­ceived her As­so­ciate of Ap­plied Sci­ence De­gree in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion in 2006.

Ms. Flow­ers has pro­fes­sion­ally served Peters­burg and the sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties for 15 years and the fi­nan­cial sec­tor for five years. Most no­tably, she is the only can­di­date with di­rect work ex­pe­ri­ence in the of­fice of the Com­mis­sioner of Rev­enue, and with your help, Brit­tany can bring the “FLOW­ERS” back to Peters­burg!

As it per­tains to her pro­fes­sional ex­per­tise, Brit­tany be­gan serv­ing the city of Peters­burg in 2013 as a Deputy II in the City Trea­surer’s of­fice, un­der the leadership of Kevin A. Brown. As a Deputy II she re­solved and col­lected un­paid tax deb­its from tax­pay­ers and busi­nesses. She is cur­rently a Deputy IV in the Com­mis­sioner of Rev­enue of­fice un­der the leadership of Pamela Hairston and Chief Deputy Lucy Ford Blake. With a smile and pleas­ant de­meanor, Brit­tany has proven her­self to be an ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tor and trust­wor­thy source in as­sist­ing tax­pay­ers with sup­ple­ments and abate­ments for per­sonal prop­erty, tax re­lief fil­ing, meal and lodg­ing taxes, and state in­come tax fil­ing, along with other of­fice re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

While em­ployed in the Com­mis­sioner of Rev­enue of­fice, the City of Peters­burg has in­vested in Brit­tany in tak­ing train­ing classes: Per­sonal Prop­erty II Roles and Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of the Com­mis­sioner of Rev­enue

Be­yond her ser­vice to the city of Peters­burg, Brit­tany also serves as a Trustee & Fi­nan­cial Sec­re­tary of Rocky Mount Bap­tist Church in McKen­ney, Vir­ginia. In this ca­pac­ity she works to en­sure all church con­tri­bu­tions are col­lected, ac­counted for and dis­trib­uted in ac­cor­dance with church pol­icy and IRS reg­u­la­tions. She main­tains a bud­get for all church min­istries, and was a sig­nif­i­cant con­trib­u­tor to­wards the cre­ation of the church’s voucher sys­tem, which is be­ing used to this day. Aside from these du­ties, Brit­tany con­tin­ues to be a suc­cess­ful en­tre­pre­neur and main­tains her li­cense as a pro­fes­sional Li­censed In­surance Agent by the Com­mon­wealth of Vir­ginia.

As you can see, Brit­tany Flow­ers is com­mit­ted to mak­ing the of­fice of the Com­mis­sioner of Rev­enue a high per­form­ing unit of the city of Peters­burg. She will en­gage the tax­pay­ers and busi­ness own­ers to im­prove our city’s fis­cal re­spon­si­bil­ity. With her knowl­edge, skills, and ex­pe­ri­ence she is the per­fect can­di­date to help us.
