Mike Hahn hopes to use his decades of business experience to serve as Richland County Treasurer if elected on November 6.
Hahn has been co-owner of Subfast and Pizza Fast for thirty-three years. He feels this experience in addition to various other leadership roles has prepared him to serve as treasurer.
He has been Olney Township Supervisor since 2005.
He has also served on the Parish Council at St. Joe, where he was a past fundraising and smorgasbord chairman.
He said, “As Township Supervisor, I have proven myself to be fiscally responsible, accountable, and transparent. I look forward to new challenges and helping Richland County thrive …”
“In my business we do everything we can to make customers happy. I treat people the way I would want to be treated.”
In his role as Supervisor, Hahn says he helps people get caught up with outstanding bills. He keeps regular office hours but says he will meet people after hours so they don’t have to take off work just to get help.  
“As Treasurer, I will have an open door policy if anyone has questions or wants to talk,” Hahn said.
If elected, Hahn intends to offer online payments to taxpayers.
 “Not everyone has the time to go into the courthouse to pay their taxes on the last day. I will make it so you can pay online at home if you want to. You will still be able to pay by check if that’s what you choose,’ he said.
Hahn believes this will be an easy task to achieve as neighboring counties have already implemented electronic pay systems.
Hahn was born and raised in Richland County, and is the youngest of seven children to Mel and Jeanette (Zuber) Hahn.
He attended St. Joe School and graduated from East Richland High School. He has been married twenty-five years to Richland County Elementary School Principal, Margaret Hahn.  They have four children, Madison, Reagan, Tyler, and Harrison, as well as one grandson, Garrett Lathrop.
Hahn says he believes in giving back to the community.  
He has committed to many community interest groups such as: past mentor for Big Brother/ Big Sisters, Girls Little League Softball, Election Judge, member of Olney Elks, Knights of Columbus, Eagles, Chamber of Commerce.
Hahn has sponsored many local sports, school, and arts programs, and says he has given away hundreds of free buffets for raffles, prizes, and perfect attendance at the schools. He also donates food to The Masters Hands.
“I believe you get the best out of people by being respectful to them, listening to their concerns, and giving clear directions,” Hahn said.
