She said in the future, it is planned that additional information will be retrieved electronically.

Anstine said she has the experience and a desire to serve the people of Juniata County, which makes her a qualified candidate for the office of county auditor.
"I have learned a lot during the past three years about the operation of our county government and I would hope to be able to put this experience to use in the future by continuing my role of helping to monitor and maintain internal control. I would be honored to serve the people of Juniata County for a second term and I will certainly appreciate your support in the primary election on May 17th," Anstine said.
