Signature Count is More Than Twice The Number Required By Law

Republican candidate for State Treasurer Hugh Hallman yesterday filed more than 11,600 signatures with the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office to officially qualify for the ballot.

Hallman filed more than twice the number of signatures required by state law — from every county in Arizona — making him the first candidate in the race to qualify for the ballot. The filing is yet another sign of momentum for a campaign that has already gained the support of dozens of prominent Republican elected officials and community leaders across the State.

“We’re very grateful to the more than 11,600 Arizona residents who signed our petition and helped ensure our campaign qualifies for the ballot,” Hallman said. “My commitment to Arizona residents is to ensure our state enjoys truly balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility in government, and we look forward to taking our message to voters over the course of the campaign.”

Time flies.

It seems like yesterday we were talking about what we could do to bring the change we need to Phoenix.

For the last 28 months, we’ve been creating change – together.

- We’ve passed Arizona’s most sweeping anti-discrimination ordinance.
- Expanded access to health care to thousands more of our kids.
- Put anti-homelessness efforts at the forefront.

Now we’re creating an innovation-based, export-focused economy that will create good jobs over the long-term.

I’m more optimistic than I’ve ever been about our future – but we have to keep going.

That’s why I need your help.

Thanks to all the friends and supporters who have contributed to my campaign! Wednesday night’s fundraiser was truly ‘like no other’. You could feel the energy and excitement as my campaign for Secretary of State continues to grow. We had food trucks featuring locally owned restaurants, live music from Arizona’s own School of Rock and most importantly over 100 supporters who turned out to help our campaign. Special thanks to former Governor of Arizona Jane Dee Hull, Hon. Betsey Bayless and the host committee for coordinating such a wonderful event.

My campaign has kicked into high-gear as we approach two months until early ballots are delivered. A week ago we filed over 8300 petition signatures to qualify for the ballot and last night’s event was a huge step in helping us reach our fundraising goal.

However, we still have a high mountain to climb. The next important date for the campaign is May 31 when campaign finance reports are due. It’s crucial we have a strong showing on that report so voters can see the strength of our campaign and our momentum as I continue to take my message on the road.

I am relying on you to help us achieve our common vision for Arizona. With your continued support we can forge ahead towards the Primary and General elections.

Thank you for your support!

"Arizona needs smart, principled, and sensible leaders, and that's why I enthusiastically endorse Shawnna Bolick for the State Legislature," stated Congressman John Shadegg. shana

“I am thrilled to have Congressman Shadegg’s endorsement,” exclaimed Bolick. “Congressman Shadegg served Arizona well during his tenure and I hope to bring the same level of constituent service to our legislative district once elected. Shadegg and I share many of the same conservative values including keeping government limited and reducing government waste. I can’t help but wonder what our country would look like today if Congressman Shadegg had been elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. I look forward to having Shadegg’s advice in solving state-federal issues.”

Shawnna Bolick has lived in Legislative District 28 for 13 years. Shawnna and her husband, Clint, have two children, Ryne (12) and Kali (9), plus their six year old rescued greyhound, Beary Goldwater, living in the shadows of Squaw Peak.
