Supervisor Barney said that Hallman’s work in the public and private sector make him the right conservative for the Office of State Treasurer.

Mayor Lord praised Hallman’s leadership on regional issues during his time as Mayor and said it’s important to have someone with that kind of experience serving in statewide office.
“Hugh Hallman understands what is important to Arizona’s communities in making sure we can provide services to our residents with a focus on fiscal responsibility,” she said. “I am proud to support his campaign for Arizona State Treasurer and know he will serve the people of our state well in managing our state’s assets and tax dollars.”
Hallman said he is grateful for the support of these statewide leaders and looks forward to ensuring their trust is well placed through his service as State Treasurer.
“We’ve been pleased and gratified by the support we have received from leaders throughout our state,” he said. “As we start to enter the home stretch of the campaign we look forward to sharing our vision for the State Treasurer’s office and showing why these leaders have been so supportive of our campaign.”
