As a near three-decade township resident, Yambrich said she's seen "tremendous growth and prosperity" in the community.
Yambrich said it would be “an honor and a privilege” to serve the township.
“I love being out in our township, talking and meeting the public,” she said. “I grew up in Fairfield and graduated from Fairfield schools. I grew up in a family dedicated to business and community service.”
Yambrich comes from a family of public servants, including her father, the late former Fairfield mayor Clarence “Bugs” Phalen.
“Give back to your community the best you can,” she said. “So, I thought it was a good time now to accomplish that, to work toward that goal to give back to Fairfield Twp.”
Yambrich said as the township grows, change and prospers, the bar for financial responsibility needs to be continually raised to the highest of standards for the community.
“The knowledge, effort, and time of the fiscal officer will aid the trustees in dealing with future challenges of the township,” she said. “Most importantly, the fiscal officer will be a good steward of the tax payer’s dollars.”
Yambrich’s bank management experience includes day-to-day operations and accounting practices within the bank branch. She also worked 14 years working for the city of Fairfield.
"My position (at Fairfield) allotted me a vast knowledge of government policy and procedures, forecasting and budgeting," she said. "Most importantly, I have been a local business owner and operator for the past 29 years."
