Bedford Finance Director elected President of Ohio Government Finance Officers Association

From the Bedford Sun Banner --
The city's finance director has been elected president of the Ohio Government Finance Officers Association.

Frank C. Gambosi won the honor during the organization's fall conference Sept. 12 in Columbus. The Ohio GFOA is a professional organization of more than 1,100 members. It was formed to act as a conduit for the flow of information among all local governments.

Gambosi has 28 years of experience in state and local government. He has been Bedford's finance director for 17 years and prior to that served for seven years in the state auditor's office.
It is probably not often when someone says the "Tax Guy" is a nice guy. But Frank is a Hell of a Guy!

The City of Bedford, in fact any city, would be hard pressed to find anyone with half the dedication of Frank. Mr. Gambosi does not only pour his heart and soul into his work for the city, but he can regularly be seen volunteering at community events.

In my interactions with Mr. Gambosi over the years at events and attending council meetings, work sessions, budget hearings, I can only think of positive remarks. I think our city administration could attest that Frank is a great steward of our cities finances.

I would say his attention to detail of the grants/funding for Tinkers Creek Industrial Park and the tax abatement packages for Ben Venue, has helped secure financial stability for our city for many years to come.

I know the guy either has or will soon get ulcers the way he gets so worried about everything - at times I do believe Frank thinks the sky really is falling. I get pictures in my mind of Frank eating Tums like M&M's as he works on our cities finances.

Frank has been awarded the GFOA Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for 19 consecutive years. I am proud to say 17 of them in Bedford!

Congratulations Frank!
