Former Republican State Treasurer’s Chief Investment Officer and County Treasurer’s Endorse Martín Quezada for State Treasurer

Phoenix, AZ— Former Republican State Treasurer’s Chief Investment Officer Patricia Humbert along with 6 county Treasurers formally endorsed Senator Martín Quezada for Arizona State Treasurer at a press conference on Tuesday.
In her endorsement, Patricia Humbert talked about the importance of the Treasurer’s office for Arizonans saying, “In uncertain times we need a State Treasurer who will look at all available information to make smart, prudent investments for us as Arizonans. As the former Chief Investment Officer for Arizona with 18 years of experience in the State Treasurer’s office, I know what it takes to succeed as Treasurer—Martín Quezada has the qualifications and the leadership to help all Arizonans put more money back in their pockets.”
Current and former County Treasurers from across the state joined Humbert in endorsing Senator Quezada for Arizona State Treasurer. Endorsees included:

Angela Moreno, Yuma County Treasurer
Kari Lopez, Navajo County Treasurer
Liz Gutfahr, Santa Cruz County Treasurer
Sarah Benatar, Coconino County Treasurer
Bonny Lynn, Former Coconino County Treasurer
Marietta Begay, Apache County Treasurer

Every Treasurer echoed how important having Senator Quezada in the State Treasurer’s office is and how crucial it is to have a full-time treasurer who isn’t using the office as a stepping stone.

Senator Martín Quezada is running a historic campaign to be the first Latino State Treasurer in Arizona history. Martín is a Phoenix native who has spent his career fighting for the values that uplift our communities and has the track record to prove it. He is a proud product of Arizona’s public schools and continues to support public education through his role as Vice President of the Pendergast School Board. As a first-generation college student, Martín earned degrees from Glendale Community College and Arizona State University West before earning his J.D. from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. He was first elected to the Arizona State Senate in 2014 and was re-elected in 2016, 2018, and 2020. While in the Senate, he was elected 3 times to serve in Leadership as the Democratic Whip and has sat as the Ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee and Senate Rules Committee. Martín is now running for Arizona State Treasurer to continue fighting for the people—when elected he will ensure that the management of Arizona’s taxpayer dollars reflects the values of the people, rather than a few narrow special interests.
