Today – State Treasurer and gubernatorial candidate Dean Martin issued the following statement prior to the Brewer Obama meeting scheduled for tomorrow.
“On behalf of Arizona I sincerely wish the Governor well on her upcoming meeting with the President. For far too long the federal government has ignored the plight of border states like Arizona, and their failure to act cast upon us the great burden of dealing with the effects of illegal immigration and drug trafficking. Now that the President is listening, the focus is on the Governor to leave tomorrow’s meeting with tangible results. Her effectiveness as governor is being put to the test. Will she be able to deliver or will it be more of the same? Either way, I know Arizonans will be watching her actions intently,” said Martin.
Dean Martin is the State Treasurer for Arizona, a statewide elective office, where he oversees $9.3 billion in investments from State and Local governments. Martin is a former state legislator who has a long record of providing transparency in government and real solutions for tax relief and border security for Arizona families.
