Tell Them The State Treasurer's Office Is Not For Sale

Jeff DeWit and Randy Pullen Want to Buy the Job of

State Treasurer. Tell Them Your Vote Is Not For Sale. 

Late last night the latest round of campaign finance reports came out. And two of the most shocking reports were from the State Treasurer’s race.

The latest reports show that my opponents, Jeff DeWit and Randy Pullen, have together spent more than $276,000 of their own money in an effort to buy the seat. They did this because DeWit was only able to raise $33,000 and Pullen was only able to raise about $73,000 from individual contributors. I guess they decided that if they wanted the office, they would have to buy it themselves.

We ran a different kind of campaign. While I did put my own skin in the game — a fraction of what DeWit and Pullen have spent — we’ve raised more than $300,000 from people just like you who believe that Arizona needs responsible, trustworthy leadership in the State Treasurer’s Office.

And yet, because of my opponents’ massive personal spending on this race, false accusations against me and distortions of my record — as well as an $80,000 "independent expenditure" attack against me — some polls are showing the race is going to be close. Every vote is going to count in selecting the person who manages billions of dollars in our taxpayer revenues and assets.

So I’m asking for your support at the polls on Tuesday to show that the State Treasurer’s Office is not for sale to the guy with the biggest checkbook. It’s a position that should be earned by a candidate with real experience in public service and a track record of fiscal responsibility and high ethical standards.

I’ve promoted those ideals my entire career, and would welcome the opportunity to put my experience to work for you as your State Treasurer. Thank you for your consideration, and if you haven’t voted yet, please remember to vote at the polls on Tuesday, August 26. And remember — if you have your mail-in ballot, you can carry it to any polling place in Arizona and turn it in.
