Arizona Treasurer Visits ENews

Arizona’s State Treasurer, Kimberly Yee, while visiting  Prescott this past week as the keynote  speaker of the Republican Women of Prescott’s monthly meeting,  found time to stop by Prescott eNews for an interview with LD1  Representative-Elect, Judy Burges.


Ms. Yee was elected State Treasurer in 2018.  She previously served two terms in  the State Senate representing District 10,  including a term as Majority Leader.  From 2011 to  2013,  she served  in the State House of  Representatives.

As Arizona Treasurer,  Ms. Yee oversees the cash management of the state’s $40 billion dollar state budget and manages an additional $19 billion in state pension and trust assets.  Prior to elective office,  Treasurer Yee, worked in the administrations of California  Governor’s  Pete Wilson and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

As a staunch fiscal conservative,  Treasurer Yee has been an advocate of financial literacy.  In 2019,  she led the effort to pass a state law requiring that financial literacy be included in the high school curriculum for all public school students.   The full video of her interview and comments on financial literacy are found here.
