The State Treasurer, effectively the state's banker, normally isn't a high-profile office. However in these historically challenging times, the policies this office implements will dramatically impact the fiscal stability of Arizona. Working together with you we can get out of this mess and restore fiscal stability and common sense. As your State Treasurer, I promise sound, conservative investments and complete transparency in how taxpayer funds are invested.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio says, "Senator Verschoor is the one candidate for State Treasurer who has fought for Arizonans' financial safety and security ... I am proud to endorse him for Arizona State Treasurer."

It is paramount that we elect a genuine conservative as State Treasurer. I have the proven conservative record. I've consistently earned the very highest scores from the Arizona Federation of Taxpayers, Goldwater Institute, and the PAChyderm Coalition, been awarded "Friend of the Family" and "Friend of the Taxpayer" every year in office and earlier this week, I was named "CHAMPION OF THE TAXPAYER" for a third straight year by Americans for Prosperity. I have a 100% pro-life, pro-gun and pro-border security voting record.

I voted FOR SB1070. Illegal migration has cost Arizona billions of dollars in education, health care and public safety costs that largely created our State budget deficit. Senator Russell Pearce says, "Thayer Verschoor has been a strong advocate in the fight to pass SB1070. Now I ask you to join me in voting for Thayer Verschoor, a proven conservative, for State Treasurer." You can count on Thayer Verschoor to keep protecting Arizona's taxpayers!

I love Arizona and I love serving Arizona. I am a native Arizonan, a dedicated husband and father of 5, an 82nd Airborne Army veteran and I owned and operated my own business, and know how to meet a payroll. I am a State Senator. In the Senate I served as Senate Majority leader and President Pro-Tem. I also served on the Appropriations, Commerce and Economic Development, Health and Transportation committees. In over 20 years of experience managing budgets in both the public and private sector I have learned two simple rules: 1. If you don't have it, don't spend it. And 2. It is better to earn interest than to pay interest.

Finally, I led the fight for the largest tax cut in Arizona's history, better schools, and expanded school choice. I'm proud of my conservative record that is unmatched by any of my challengers. I give you my solemn commitment that I will continue looking after the best interests of Arizona's taxpayer as your Watchdog in the office of State Treasurer!
