John Chiang

The American Dream

As a child of immigrant parents, John and his siblings grew up in a much different time. His parents arrived in this country, each dreaming of a better future. While their determination and relentlessness led to a middle class neighborhood with better schools, they still experienced bigotry, as the first Asian American Family on the block. But John’s parents never gave up on a better life for his family and that’s why he will never give up on the same for you.

The Government Innovator

Elected California’s 33rd State Treasurer on November 4, 2014, John serves as our state’s banker, overseeing trillions of dollars in transactions every year. Conducting the State’s business in the most transparent manner possible is his top priority and the results are proof.

As Treasurer, John has made it easier for taxpayers to hold their government officials accountable by launching a website to make pay, benefits and borrowing costs for state and local governments available online, spanning back three decades. When Wall Street banks -- like Wells Fargo – began ripping off innocent Californians by the millions of dollars they didn’t have, John hit them where it hurt most. Thanks to John’s grit, Wells Fargo was cut off from their most profitable lines of business with the largest state in the union--California.

Recognizing Californians deserve better when they plan and prepare for retirement, John was one of the architects of Secure Choice, a state sponsored retirement plan that will help 7.5 million Californians -- with almost no cost to the state, California is at the fore front of a national movement and is set to herald in the most significant change to retirement savings since Social Security was enacted in the 1930s.

The Honest Broker

When government officials refused to do their job, John became the enforcer and held them accountable. For example, when then Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, threatened to cut State workers’ pay as leverage in a budget battle, John refused to implement the illegal order. He even held his own party accountable by withholding the pay of state legislators when they failed to pass a balanced state budget on time as required by the state constitution.
