Jeff DeWit

Phoenix – Jeff DeWit, CEO/Investment Professional and Arizona State Treasurer candidate, announced today that Former Arizona State Senator and retired U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Beret), Frank Antenori has endorsed his candidacy.

“With the Governor’s race grabbing a lot of press, many folks may not be paying the deserved attention to the GOP State Treasurer’s race. The office of Treasurer needs someone with a track record of successful investing, someone we can trust with our tax dollars and who we can trust to tell the truth when Arizona is in financial trouble,” said Antenori.  “There is only one candidate with the credibility and the qualifications to do that job and that’s Jeff DeWit.  Besides being a licensed investment professional for over 20 years, Jeff has the business and financial background to safeguard Arizona tax dollars.  That’s why I am wholeheartedly supporting Jeff DeWit for Arizona State Treasurer.”

“I’m honored to have Frank’s endorsement. He has been a strong voice for conservative values and fiscal responsibility,” said DeWit.  “Knowing that I have his support in this race is extremely meaningful.”

Phoenix –  Jeff DeWit, CEO/Investment Professional and candidate for Arizona State Treasurer, announced today that State Senator Kelli Ward has endorsed his candidacy.

“As the Senator representing Legislative District 5, I am pleased to endorse Jeff DeWit in his race for State Treasurer.  Like Jeff, I place a high value on candidates that believe in conservative principles. The extensive private sector financial experience he brings to the table is invaluable to our state and to the office of Treasurer.

His desire to add more transparency to the state budget will allow all of the citizens of Arizona to see exactly where the money goes,” said Senator Ward.

Proven Record. Great Momentum.

As I’ve been traveling throughout our state, introducing myself and sharing why I truly believe I’m the best candidate to serve as Arizona’s next State Treasurer, the support I have received has been astounding and incredibly humbling.

Each and every individual I meet on the campaign trail reminds me of the reasons why I want this job – to protect and serve the future of our great state while preserving and furthering Arizona’s financial prosperity.

The primary job of the State Treasurer is to protect Arizona’s investment portfolio, worth over $12 Billion. This portfolio needs to be entrusted to a proven financial professional from the business and investment community, not a career politician. I am that proven professional.

My personal experience and professional background in the financial industry gives me a solid foundation for my duties as State Treasurer. My experience allows me to begin my first day in office with decades of proven investment results, successful corporate leadership and hard-learned lessons behind me.

My background includes:

• Investment Professional for over 20 years, one of the youngest members of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade. 

• Founded a financial services firm and served as CEO from our Phoenix HQ for 14 years. 

• Degree in Business Administration with a minor in Finance and an Accounting degree.

• Lifelong Republican; Precinct and State Committeeman in LD22.

• Married to Marina; Father of three beautiful girls and reside in the Northwest Valley.

Please visit my website at JEFFDEWIT.com to learn more about me, and be sure to follow our campaign on Facebook.com/JeffDeWitAZ – and please *LIKE* our Facebook page.

I need a minimum of approximately 6,000 signatures to be listed on the voting ballot and would be honored to have your help. Signing the online petition is very easy to do! Just grab your driver’s license and click here. I appreciate your help.

If you have any questions or comments, just ask! I’m here for you and the future of our state and hope to earn your trust (and your vote) for Arizona State Treasurer!

Looking forward to visiting with you on the campaign trail!

Stop Pension Spiking / Sign Online Petition

613 Days and Growing…

The number of days since Mayor Stanton promised he would end pension spiking and after 613 days not one single public meeting or public vote has been scheduled.  “It’s time to end pension spiking, it’s time to keep the promise to end it and it is time to schedule a public meeting and vote. So we now need to go directly to the voters to put the pressure on the politicians” said Councilman Sal DiCiccio.

The online petition can be found at  http://StopPensionSpiking.com

After six letters and a request for a personal meeting with Mayor Stanton, Councilman Sal DiCiccio launched an online petition hoping to get a public meeting and a vote to end pension spiking.

DiCiccio, a staunch opponent of the practice, has maintained pension spiking is in direct violation of the Arizona Constitution.  In every communication to the Mayor’s office, he has requested a public discussion and vote so the public can know where the Mayor and Council stand on the practice.  Pension spiking has contributed to Phoenix’s $2.4 billion unfunded pension liability.

The Goldwater Institute recently filed a lawsuit against Phoenix to end the practice.  Delaying council action puts Phoenix in legal jeopardy.

“I figured after seven attempts to contact the Mayor it was time for a new approach. Hopefully, this petition will get his attention. 613 days without a public discussion or vote is no longer acceptable. Everyday wasted is another day taxpayers are left footing the bill for extravagant pension packages. It is time to schedule a vote.” said Councilman DiCiccio.
