The exceptionally good-looking people in this staff photo are among the unsung heroes who serve Washington state taxpayers and the local governments and state agencies whom they support. They are the workforce of the Washington State Treasurer’s Office.
Collaborating with State Treasurer Duane Davidson and his senior staff, they make sure taxpayer funds are properly collected, transferred, disbursed, and invested.
They also oversee the state’s debt portfolio, and much more.
The Treasurer chairs the State Finance Committee, on which the Governor and Lieutenant Governor also sit, and the Public Deposit Protection Commission. He also serves on another five state boards which help guide economic forecasting, low-income housing finance, economic development, college savings, and public sector retirement plan investments.
