John Chiang is widely recognized as California’s fiscally responsible progressive leader. As our state’s Controller (2007-2014) and current Treasurer, he has a proven track record of increasing transparency and accessibility in state government and holding government officials accountable when they refuse to do their job.
John stood up to Wall Street banks — like Wells Fargo – and has saved the state billions of dollars through audits and debt restructuring. John has the progressive vision California needs and the fiscal responsibility to pay for it.
John is running for Governor to make sure the future his parents were able to provide for him becomes a reality for the future of all California families. John will continue to fight for the millions of Californians who feel economically sidelined by the opportunities enjoyed by past generations, — fighting specifically for those who now feel homeownership, college affordability and a dignified retirement is wholly out of reach.
