Thank you for visiting my website. Having spent a professional lifetime
preparing to serve you as State Treasurer, with an educational background
that includes an MBA from the Arizona State University, A certificate in
‘Applied Economic Analysis from NYU/FDU and a BS in Accounting from
Saint John’s University.
To paraphrase the duties of the Treasurer as outlined in the 2020 Arizona
Revised Statutes Title 35 – Public Finance § 35-327. The Treasurers first
responsibility is to protect your money.
The treasurer is responsible for investing your money and for the
safekeeping of all securities acquired by the treasurer under this section.
My background and experience fit directly into this requirement.
- One of the benchmarks of my career is raising over $100 million in
the capital markets. Some of these fundings required me to invest
the bulk of the money with major banks that offer trust fund
management. Before the decision to invest was made I presented to
the Board of Directs several options of investments that assured to
the highest degree safety and liquidity of the investor’s money.
The treasurer is responsible to deliver to the governor and the department of administration, monthly, and annually, an accurate statement of receipts and expenditures of public monies.
- The above statement describes a fundamental duty of a CFO. I have
fulfilled this type of duty to the C-Level Management and Boards of
Directors of both privately held and publicly held companies to the
The combination of my education and CFO experience makes me a fit to
serve as State treasurer.
My passion for public service is probably no surprise to many of you. My
four years serving as AZGOP’s State Party Treasurer, my volunteer work
on this year’s Maricopa County Election Audit, and my Work in the Madison
Coalition we gained statewide support for a Constitutional Amendment to
limit the number of Supreme Court Justices to nine, demonstrate the
dedication to detail in keeping our Republic. I believe public service is in the DNA of my family. Two of my three sons are career military. My son
Christopher was ‘Special Medical Liaison to the Joint Chiefs of Staff”.
