Says Hallman’s Record of Fiscal Responsibility is Ideal for Office
PHOENIX, Arizona (June 19, 2014) — Congressman Matt Salmon, one of Arizona’s leading conservative voices, has endorsed Hugh Hallman for Arizona State Treasurer.
The East Valley congressman has worked closely with Hallman over the years on regional issues. Congressman Salmon said his first-hand knowledge of Hallman’s experience and expertise made Hallman a clear choice for the State Treasurer’s race.
“Getting our state's financial house in order must be a top priority for all members of our state’s executive branch,” Congressman Salmon said. “With our state’s debt approaching $9 billion, it is critical that we make serious and immediate changes to how Arizona spends our money. Hugh Hallman understands this crucial issue based on his years of experience in the private sector and his long service as Tempe’s fiscally conservative Mayor. Hugh cut Tempe’s budget while improving services. We can trust Hugh Hallman to serve us well as Arizona’s next State Treasurer.”
Congressman Salmon joins more than 80 conservative leaders who have praised Hallman’s combination of experience and expertise as the ideal mix for the office of State Treasurer. A full list of endorsements is available at www.hughhallman.com/endorsements.
