AR State Treasurer Milligan Seeks Re-election

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.  - Treasurer of State Dennis Milligan has announced he is running for re-election in 2018.    

"I came into office promising I would challenge the way things have always been done," Milligan said via a news release issued on Tuesday. "The results have been positive and I am humbly asking the citizens of Arkansas to give me one last term to finish the job I started almost three years ago."

Milligan said the dramatic increase in return on investments during a period of historic low interest rates, the tremendous growth and reduction of fees in the Arkansas 529 college savings program, and the introduction and growth of the financial literacy program under his administration are three major reasons he'd like to continue the work under another term.

"I took office from an elected state treasurer who had stolen and cheated the taxpayers to benefit herself. In just three years, I have turned the office around and made the state well over $118 million from investment returns rather than costing the taxpayers money. Those returns have been so significant that even the Governor and Legislature now – unlike in the past – count on them to match federal highway funds and build up the state's long-term reserve account," Milligan added.
