A Luncheon Honoring John Chiang


John Chiang PicYou are cordially invited to a lunch honoring California’s new Treasurer – an old friend of the Foundation – John Chiang. 

John’s story is that of a brilliant attorney, and a hard-working public servant. The son of immigrant parents, John earned a Degree in Finance from the University of South Florida, where he graduated with honors. He went on to law school at Georgetown. Putting his education to work, John worked for the IRS and for the State Controller’s Office. (First time at the Controller’s Office.)

Then in 1998 John was elected to the Board of Equalization, which he ultimately Chaired. After serving two terms on the Board of Equalization, John was elected and then re-elected California’s Controller; thus he spent another eight years working at the Controller’s Office for a second time.  

Now as Treasurer, John is the State’s Banker. He oversees the processing of trillions of dollars each year. John sells bonds, invests California’s money and manages its cash. Additionally, he manages financing authorities that help provide good-paying jobs, better schools, improved transportation, quality health care, more affordable housing, and a cleaner environment. He sits on the Governing Boards of America’s two largest public pension funds, the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), and the California State Teachers Retirement System (CalSTRS).

John is one of only two California statewide officials who live in Southern California. Our money is in good hands with John Chiang. We are honored to honor him – Please join us:
