From Dave Jamison’s campaign:
Ames, Iowa- Steve Forbes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Forbes and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes magazine, announced his endorsement of Dave Jamison for State Treasurer on Monday.
"Dave Jamison’s experience as Story County Treasurer is what the people of Iowa need," said Forbes, who is also the Honorary Chairman of Iowans for Discounted Taxes, "Dave has put together a plan that will put Iowa first. He has continually worked to create transparency in the treasurer’s office and to fight government waste."
Forbes went on to say "In a time where many are growing government at an unprecedented pace Dave was able to make his office work for the people without growing it out of control. His streamlined processes helped save the people of Story County money and as State Treasurer he will work to save all Iowans money. The people of Iowa need a treasurer who will work in their best interest and that man is Dave Jamison."
Jamison and Forbes had a chance to sit and talk while Forbes was in Polk County for a lunch meeting. "Steve Forbes is recognized internationally as an authority on sound fiscal policies and has worked to promote a strong economy throughout the country. I am honored to earn his support. As I travel this state with a positive message of getting Iowa back on sound fiscal footing, our campaign continues to gain momentum and support. I am grateful to have the support of such a respected leader in the financial community and will continue working hard to ensure Iowans have a treasurer who will put Iowa first again."
