This November, California voters will choose the state’s next treasurer, who will be responsible for finance and investment.
Current Treasurer John Chiang is terming out, leaving the seat open, and the two options are: Democrat Fiona Ma and Republican Greg Conlon.
Ma is currently a chairwoman on the Board of Equalization and a CPA. Conlon is also a CPA, and has served on the California Public Utilities Commission as President for two years and as a Commissioner for four years. You can read more about the candidates and the role of the Treasurer here.
Today, we sit down with Greg Conlon to discuss his platform and what he would accomplish should he be voted the next Treasurer of California.
We reached out to Democratic candidate Fiona Ma. She declined our request for interview.
