Thank you for visiting my website. Iowans are special people and I am fortunate to get to serve as their state treasurer.
As we enter another election cycle, there is no question that experience counts. Throughout my years as state treasurer, I have developed expertise in many areas. I have been a leader in 529 college savings, unclaimed property and state financings. I understand how important it is for the state to do things right when it comes to finances.
During my tenure as state treasurer, the state has gone through some challenging economic times. But through those times, I assured Iowans that if we did things right, we could weather the economic storms - and we have. As other states still struggle, Iowa has maintained its AAA ratings and not only has a balanced budget, but a surplus as well.
I know that my work is not done. I want to help our citizens gain access to programs that will assist them in navigating today’s complex financial world. In addition, I want to make sure Iowa continues to get the best financial ratings in the country. Through my leadership, I want to continue to promote fair government and safe financial strategies.
