State Treasurer Counts Every Dime

June 25, 1991

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Recently elected State Treasurer Dawn Rockey promised to record every last dime.

She did just that when she deposited a dime in the state coffers that was given to her by a young man who was watching the Nebraskaland Days parade in North Platte on Saturday.

She said the young man approached her during the parade and said since she was the state treasurer, she should have some money. He handed her a dime.

″I was not able to get the young man’s name, it happened too fast,″ Rockey said.

″But, I did tell him I would deposit it in the state’s account, which I did today,″ she said Monday. ″The donation made my day.″
