FISCAL CONSERVATIVE MIKE MAZZEI LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN FOR STATE TREASURER

“INVESTING IN OKLAHOMA’S FUTURE IS MY PRIORITY”

“I am excited to launch my campaign and it comes with my commitment that I will be a strong fiscal conservative watchdog for the state.  I have built a successful small business in Tulsa by leading with trust and sound financial advice.  I will take that same leadership to serve the citizens of Oklahoma.”

TULSA, OKLAHOMA – Mike Mazzei announced today that he is officially launching his campaign for State Treasurer. 

“We need leaders in our state that have the private sector experience that can navigate the chaos surrounding our country.  We need to prioritize our investments and we need to ensure that our state is fiscally sound.   

Mazzei continued, “As a conservative, I have always made decisions on what is best for the people I serve, whether it is in business or in public service.  I have built my business out of trust and confidence, and it is the same approach that I will take as the State Treasurer.  There are many challenges facing our state and we must have a common sense approach to solving those.”  

“Governor Stitt placed his trust in me, and I am now asking the voters to do the same for this next chapter for our state.  Protecting and investing in our state’s future has never been a higher priority and we can do it together.”
