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.”
Conservative leaders 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.
“Arizona needs continued conservative leadership in the Treasurer’s office,” said U.S. Senator Jeff Flake. “Hugh Hallman has a track record of fiscal responsibility and a commitment to conservative principles that will serve Arizona well. I strongly urge Arizonans to support Hugh Hallman for State Treasurer.”
“I have enjoyed working with Hugh Hallman over the years on issues important to Maricopa County residents, and have been impressed with his leadership,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “Hugh understands how to address complex issues faced on the local and state level and to find solutions that are in the best interests of Arizona residents. With his focus on fiscal responsibility, he would be an ideal choice for State Treasurer.”
“I’ve worked with Hugh Hallman while he served the people of Tempe as their mayor, and while he served the region as Treasurer and Chair of the Maricopa Association of Governments. The amount of energy and expertise he brings to his public service is exceptional,” Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane said.
“We need the kind of responsible, effective leadership Hugh Hallman will provide as State Treasurer,” said Len Munsil, former Republican gubernatorial candidate and another leading conservative voice. “Hugh has shown through his work in Tempe and on regional issues that he truly understands the role of government and how to oversee taxpayer dollars in a responsible way.”
“We work closely with the State Treasurer’s Office on the funding we need to make sure Lake Havasu City’s government is run effectively,” Lake Havasu City Mayor Mark Nexsen said. “Having someone like Hugh Hallman, a former Mayor who understands the importance of fiscal responsibility, in this office would be a tremendous asset for Arizona residents.”
Hugh Hallman is a Republican candidate for Arizona State Treasurer. He is the immediate past Mayor of Tempe, a position that relied upon his background as a public servant, economist and attorney to shape policies that work for the people of his community. He also served as Chairman of the Maricopa Association of Governments during the final year of his second term as Mayor, where he played a leadership role in regional issues.
Hugh is a longtime community volunteer and lifelong resident of Arizona, where his family settled in the 1860s. In 2009, he became Headmaster of Tempe Preparatory Academy, now one of the State’s best public schools. He has a successful track record as an attorney, educator, economist and civic leader.
