Bill Beard, immediate past-Chairman of the Pima County Republican Party, announces run for Arizona GOP Treasurer
Bill Beard, former Chairman of the Pima County Republican Party, has announced he is running to be the Arizona GOP Treasurer.
I ask all elected Republican State Committeemen for your vote at the Arizona State Republican Party statutory meeting on Saturday, January 28th, 2017.
I’m a native of Southern Arizona and believe that additional representation from Pima County is crucial for carrying many Statewide elections. In 2012, I took on a 20-year Democrat incumbent to run for the office of Pima County Recorder and was the first Republican to do so since the entrenched incumbent’s first election.
I served as the 2014-16 chairman of the Pima County Republican Party and was able during my tenure to reduce the County Party’s overhead expenses by more than 60%. I will bring that same fiscal responsibility to the State Party.
During my Chairmanship we flipped the Democrats’ decades-long hold on the office of Pima County Sheriff, no small feat considering the enormous registration deficit that Republicans have in Pima County. Like the Pima leadership in this last cycle I want to keep the statewide efforts focused on
the task at hand in the next…electing Republicans in the General Election. As your Treasurer I will keep the resources of the state party focused on that end each day. In joining the new Executive Committee I will help raise the funds to meet those needs.
I bring over 30 years of business ownership and management experience to the table. I have managed multimillion-dollar budgets that required lengthy research and attention to detail to differentiate between local, state and federal reporting requirements.
I serve as a current member of the Pima County Election Integrity Commission.
I ask for your vote.
