Godlewski and Hartwig were vying Tuesday to replace outgoing Treasurer Matt Adamcyzk, who decided not to run for the state Assembly rather than seek re-election to the post.

The treasurer has no real tasks except to sit on the Board of Commissioners of Public Land and track unclaimed property. Godlewski wants to use the office to review state finances and protect senior citizens from exploitation.

Any expansion of the treasurer's duties would require legislative approval.
