Patrick brings over seventeen years of banking experience with him to the Grant County Treasurer’s Office. Early in his career he showed his commitment by becoming one of the youngest bank officers in their history. Patrick has experienced much in his long career in banking from the lending experiences where he worked hard to help the hard working citizens of Grant County, to the operation of the banking system. He knows that this real world experience as well as his education will help him lead the Treasurer’s office successfully.
Patrick is personally invested in serving his community where he lives. Within his first term as Treasurer, he was nominated by his fellow treasurer colleagues in the state as Vice President of the Treasurer's Affiliate. He has shown his care and concern for his community by serving as an active member of the Silver School Board where he is currently serving his second term and serves as secretary of the board.

Patrick is also a board member of LULAC Council 8003, Grant County Chamber of Commerce and El Grito Headstart. Patrick recently is a co-founder of the Grant County Task Force for the homeless. Patrick truly believes that the only way to improve your community is to be an active member in the decisions that affect it.
On a personal note, Patrick is a dedicated family man and has been happily married to his wife Desiree for over seventeen years. Patrick and Desiree have four children together. The Cohn’s have made Grant County their home and currently reside in Silver City, New Mexico. In his free time Patrick enjoys the simple things such as spending time with his family. He also enjoys the rich treasures that our community provides such as spending time with his family camping, hiking, fishing and the serenity that only the Gila National Forest provides.
In closing Patrick would like to express that Grant County and its residents have always been an intricate part of his life. This is why he is very excited over the opportunity to serve this great community as its County Treasurer. Patrick would like to express that he does have an open door policy for all of the citizens of Grant County and his fellow public officials. He would also like to credit his staff, starting with his Chief Deputy Lorraine Castillo, Senior County Specialists Liz Hernandez, Vangie Gonzales, and finally Jazmine Prejean in Solid Waste. Together as a team they will work hard to provide Grant County with the service it deserves through the Treasurer’s Office.

Welcome to the Office of the Grant County Treasurer
The Treasurer serves as the tax collector for Grant County, the State of New Mexico and numerous other tax authorities within the County of Grant. The Treasurer’s Office takes the assessed property valuations, provided by the Assessor’s Office, and multiplies that by the tax rate established by the State of New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration to calculate the amount of taxes due. The Treasurer’s Office collects and disburses tax collections to the appropriate government agencies and receipts, deposits and, where appropriate, invests available revenues for the County of Grant until they are needed. The Treasurer’s Office keeps books and records of county funds pertaining to the office ready for inspection by the auditors for the Board of County Commissioners and the State Department of Finance and Administration.
More than 40,000 property tax bills, delinquency notices and other correspondence are sent by the County Treasurer's Office annually. It is the job of the Treasurer's Office to collect these bills.
As the "banker" for the County, the Treasurer's Office is also responsible for collecting money due to other County departments, including fees for services, licenses and revenues from bond issues and special assessments. The Treasurer invests surplus monies until they are needed for County operations, and is an important source of service and information for County residents.
