State Treasurer John Murante was first elected in 2018.
Prior to his election, he served as State Senator from 2013-2019. During his time in the Nebraska State Legislature, Treasurer Murante was elected Chairman of the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee and also served on the Transportation and Telecommunications committee and the Executive Board of the Legislature. Treasurer Murante advocated for shrinking and streamlining government, adoption of voter id laws and lowering taxes.
In his professional life, Treasurer John Murante was President and CEO of his family’s small business in Omaha Nebraska.
Treasurer Murante is married to his wife, Melissa, and has one daughter.
Scott Fitzpatrick was sworn in as Missouri’s 47th Treasurer on January 14, 2019.
As Treasurer, Scott is fighting to promote government transparency and efficiency. His record as Chairman of the House Budget Committee reflects his commitment to fiscally conservative values as well as his support for small businesses and Missouri families.
Scott was first elected State Representative in 2012, at the age of 25, to represent Barry and portions of Stone and Lawrence counties. He served as Chairman of the House Budget Committee in 2017 and 2018. Under Scott’s conservative leadership, the State’s budget surplus nearly tripled to almost $500 million, while Missouri schools were fully funded for the first time in nearly a decade.
Scott understands the needs of Missouri’s business-owners. When he was 17 years-old, Scott started his own company, MariCorp US., a Shell Knob-based marine manufacturing and construction company that does business coast-to-coast. His experience growing his company inspired him to run for office to fight unnecessary red tape and burdensome regulations.
He is a member of the Cassville, Shell Knob and Monett chambers of commerce and has been recognized in Springfield Business Journal’s “40 under 40.”
A lifelong Missourian, Scott graduated from Cassville High School and the University of Missouri. He currently lives in Cassville where he and his wife Mallory have two sons, Luke and Carson, and are members of United Methodist Church in Cassville.
On November 4, 2014, Dennis Milligan became the first Republican elected to the Office of Treasurer of State since Reconstruction securing 56% of the vote. The Treasurer of State serves as the State’s banker and is responsible for an investment portfolio of approximately $3 billion.
Dennis previously served as the Saline County Circuit Clerk from 2011-2015.
The middle child of Lee Milligan, a truck driver, and Mae Milligan, a homemaker, Dennis grew up in Little Rock and graduated from McClellan High School in 1976. He attended the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Dennis is a successful small business owner who started his company, Water Treatment Services (WTS), from scratch in 1985. WTS has grown from serving central Arkansas to serving customers in 17 states. Dennis also owns a real estate developing company and is a home builder.
Dennis and his wife, Tina (Summers), married in 1977 and have lived in Saline County since 1985. They have one daughter, Tiffany, an attorney, and son-in-law Chad Brown, vice president of WTS; and three grandchildren: Jackson, and twins Gabby and Grace.
Dennis is a member of The Church at Rock Creek. In his local community, Dennis has coached little league baseball, and supported the Saline County Humane Society, his local chapter of Habitat for Humanity and Saline County Seniors. Dennis was appointed constable in Saline County by Governor Mike Huckabee in 2006, and has served as a reserve deputy with the Saline County Sheriff’s office. He has supported scholarships for single parents and created eight scholarships for high school seniors in four Saline County high schools. Dennis was named to the Arkansas Chapter of the American Red Cross Board of Directors in 2014.
Dennis previously ran for state representative in 2002 and 2004. He served as chairman of the Saline County Republican Committee in 2005. Dennis went on to serve as the Treasurer for the Republican Party of Arkansas and Chairman of the Republican Party of Arkansas from 2007 to 2008.
As Saline County Circuit Clerk, Dennis was an innovator and unafraid of challenging the status quo. He never accepted the old adage, “well that’s how we’ve always done it.” He implemented an online juror information data collection system, usage of a computer system to randomly assign jurors and allowed for the use of debit and credit cards to pay filing fees.
In 2012, Dennis was one of 12 nominees for the prestigious G. Thomas Munsterman Award for Jury Innovation. This national award recognizes states, local courts, organizations or individuals that have made significant improvements or innovations in jury procedures, operations and practices. Dennis was nominated for his jury notification system that replaced a method which required jury panelist to call a recorded message each week to find out if they were needed or not for jury service. His notification system sent notices to panelist via a pre-recorded message to a home or cell phone, or via an email or text message saving the taxpayers’ time and money. Dennis is the only Arkansan ever nominated for that award.
During the 89th Session of the Arkansas General Assembly, Dennis worked closely with legislators on Act 291. Previously Dennis ended the practice in Saline County of the Circuit Clerk being paid personally while acting as the commissioner for the sale of real or personal property. Act 291 ended the practice statewide and has the fee go into the county funds which cover the operations of the Circuit Clerk offices.
As Treasurer of State, Dennis will continue to bring his innovate spirit and mindset to the Treasurer of State’s office. He has pledged to restore honor and integrity, and regain the public’s trust in the office. He will be introducing a blind bidder program to receive and award investment proposals from pre-approved vendors, posting all public records online and automating the operations of the office as much as allowed by law.

John M. Schroder, Sr. was elected Louisiana State Treasurer in November of 2017. As Treasurer, he oversees the state’s $6.6 billion investment portfolios and $40.7 billion in cash flow. He also chairs the Louisiana State Bond Commission and returns millions of dollars in unclaimed property to Louisiana citizens.
