Mark Manoil believes that public service means to work ethically for Arizonans' needs and expectations, and to honor the social compact embodied in our state's constitution: the twin goals being a healthy environment for individuals to thrive and building a stronger community. He is a 30-year attorney born and raised in Phoenix, son of an Arizona first family and an Ellis Island immigrant, graduate of Stanford University and Arizona State University's law school and business school (MBA), and descendant of a territorial treasurer. In private practice he has worked in banking, real estate, and property tax enforcement, writing a legal reference book on the last subject and co-chairing a blight-remediation committee for the City of Phoenix. He is committed to scandal-free, stable stewardship of the state's finances and will advocate for sane fiscal policy that includes addressing the needs of our education community, consumer financial service alternatives, and opportunities for entrepreneurial innovators. To demonstrate that he is committed to the public interest and not special interests, he is running as a Clean Elections-funded candidate. MarkManoilforArizona.com
Jo Ann Sabbagh
In the 106-year history of Arizona, I am the first accountant on the ballot as State Treasurer. I own and operate a public accounting firm in Tucson. I am the only candidate with a Bachelor Degree in Business majoring in accounting. I am the only candidate with the Federal license of Enrolled Agent demonstrating my knowledge of income tax and accounting. Our two most recently elected State Treasurers were chosen by the taxpayers of Arizona due to their expertise and experience in the fields of accounting and finance. The citizens of Arizona have sent a clear message to the career politicians -- stay away from the State Treasurer position. With this message, I am the only candidate qualified for this position. Who would you rather have preserve and protect the assets of the State of Arizona, an accountant or a politician? Leave the business of running the state of Arizona to a business owner, not a political opportunist. Sabbagh for Arizona is Accountability for Arizona!
I am running for Arizona Treasurer because I have the background and experience for the position. I'm the only candidate who has worked in the Treasurer's Office having served in the administration of State Treasurer Dean Martin. I have a long-standing record as a fiscal and social conservative with a reputation as a taxpayer watchdog, ensuring transparency and accountability in public budgeting. As Treasurer, I'd bring prosperity to Arizona and our economy by growing the investments of the office to benefit education, state and local taxpayers. A native Arizonan, I graduated from Greenway High School and Pepperdine University and earned a master's degree in public administration from ASU. I've served the administrations of two Republican governors. As Arizona's Senate Majority Leader, I'm the second female elected to this position since U.S. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor served in 1973. I am the first Asian American woman elected to the Arizona Legislature and was named among the nation's "25 Most Influential Women in Politics" by Congressional Quarterly's Roll Call.In 2016, I was honored to be a featured speaker at the Republican National Convention. I've been endorsed by two former Arizona Republican governors and five former Arizona State Treasurers, including Jeff DeWit.
