Mr Chiang is widely believed to be a leading candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor in 2014, but has indicated that he will run for State Treasurer instead if Governor Brown seeks a fourth term. San Diego area Democrats were very impressed with Mr Chiang’s speech at our most recent County Convention.

Controller John Chiang, California’s chief fiscal officer, has fought to make finances more transparent and accountable to the public and to weed out waste, fraud, and abuse of public money. Chiang has led efforts to reform the California’s public pension systems, helped local governments navigate difficult economic times, protected precious natural resources, reunited owners with more than $2.1 billion in unclaimed property, and launched financial and tax assis- tance seminars. California State Controller since January 8, 2007, he previously served as chair of the California Board of Equalization and represented the Fourth District, primarily serving southern Los Angeles County. Chiang is unable to run for a third term in 2014 due to term limits.
