HARRISBURG – Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced Wednesday his endorsement of businessman and former Army officer Otto Voit to be Pennsylvania’s next State Treasurer.
“In Texas, we know how to create jobs and we know what a strong economy looks like. After talking with him and seeing his policy proposals for Pennsylvania, there is no doubt in my mind that Otto Voit is the right leader to serve as State Treasurer.”
“With his strong background in business and finance, Otto brings the right experience and acumen to the Treasurer’s office. Businesses and public organizations have trusted Otto to ensure their finances were clear, accurate and transparent, and Pennsylvania voters know he will do the same thing for the state’s finances.”
“As a former Army officer, Otto will also bring the highest levels of leadership and integrity to the office,” added Comptroller Hegar. “Pennsylvania is fortunate to have a leader like Otto Voit and I’m proud to endorse him to be your next State Treasurer.”
Voit thanked Hegar for his support. “Comptroller Hegar has a strong record of fiscal leadership in Texas and the strong economy there speaks well of his success. I am humbled and honored to have his support.”
