My wife recently retired from 30+ years of service with Maricopa County. Over those years, we have been very proud of how the county has been managed and the quality of leadership represented there. Because of our close affinity with the County, I have determined to run for the position of County Treasurer. If I can win your vote and the election for Maricopa County Treasurer, I promise to do all that I can to bring professional management, constant improvement, the latest technology and fiscal responsibility to the office.
