Incumbent Ron Crane is seeking his fifth term. Silver said it's time for more transparency and more accountability, qualities she said are missing from the current treasurer.
"He's been in a lot of trouble riding around in limousines in New York and has a gas card that's not accountable," said Silver. "And we need to have elected officials who are acting like there is a crisis with education and every dollar should be going there and we should be thinking about that."
Silver was born in Twin Falls and grew up in Jerome. She was a teacher for five years and a CPA for more than 30.
