"We need people like Kimberly Yee to help lead Arizona."
Today, former Arizona State Treasurer Dean Martin endorsed Kimberly Yee for re-election for the State Senate. Dean served Arizona as State Treasurer and State Senator. In his capacity as Arizona's Treasurer, he invested and saved millions in state taxpayer dollars. Mr. Martin continues to be a strong conservative voice in Arizona government.
"At the Capitol it is rare to find someone with honesty, integrity, intelligence, and a strong work ethic," Martin stated. "Kimberly Yee is that exceptional person who has these qualities in abundance. That's why I made her an integral part of my leadership team at the State Treasurer's office where we maximized investments for Arizona citizens, including millions in endowment dollars for education. We need people like Kimberly Yee to help lead Arizona. Kimberly can be counted on to protect the taxpayer's hard-earned dollars. Public service requires sacrifice and we are lucky to have someone of her quality willing to serve. I am proud to call her a friend and colleague. Please join me in supporting Kimberly Yee for the State Senate and return honesty and integrity to the State Capitol."
Yee said, "I had the wonderful opportunity to work for Dean Martin in the Arizona State Treasurer's office where we worked diligently every day to protect the taxpayer dollar and maximize every investment, especially for Arizona's education endowment. I am thankful for Dean Martin's many years of strong, trusted leadership in Arizona. Dean has always been a respected, reasonable and conservative voice in Arizona, and I am proud to call him my friend. I thank him for his endorsement."
Kimberly Yee is a state senator from Legislative District 20 and serves as the Chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee.
