This Week January 17: State Treasurer Young Boozer on Alabama’s Fiscal Outlook
Posted By admin
Aside from all of the football talk of late, few topics are more persistent and pressing in the news than government finance. On Tuesday, after recovering from the BCS festivities, Rotarians will return to Indian Hills to hear from State Treasurer Young J. Boozer, III on the financial issues facing our state.
Boozer, a native of Tuscaloosa, earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Stanford University and a master’s degree in finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Over four decades he worked for Citibank in New York, Crocker National Bank in Los Angeles, Coral Petroleum in Houston and Colonial Bank in Montgomery. Boozer then served as Deputy State Finance Director for Governor Bob Riley until early 2010, when he ran for State Treasurer.
He is a member of and has held leadership roles in several organizations, including the Church of the Ascension in Montgomery, the Montgomery Rotary Club, the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, the Boy Scouts of America and Stanford University.
