InfoState Treasurer Mike Coffman has been a consistent voice for common-sense government and a devoted protector of the taxpayer throughout his tenure in public service. Mr. Coffman brings to the Colorado Department of Treasury a focus on government accountability and private sector solutions.

Before his election as State Treasurer, Mr. Coffman served in both the Colorado House of Representatives and the State Senate, where he was Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and sponsored legislation revising the investment statutes for the Colorado Treasury. In 1997, Mr. Coffman authored the groundbreaking "Colorado Works" legislation that ushered in a new era of welfare reform for the State of Colorado.

As Treasurer, Mr. Coffman developed Colorado's new private-sector college savings program-Scholar's Choice. Recognized as one of the best programs of its kind in the country, Scholar's Choice provides parents with both tax deferred savings and a market rate of return.

In keeping with his role as guardian of the taxpayer and his focus on governmental accountability, Mr. Coffman has also fought to protect unclaimed property held by the state unitl its rightful owners are found. Mr. Coffman has worked diligently to ensure that unclaimed financial assests do not revert to the state government's coffers.

Before he became State Treasurer, Mr. Coffman was an entrepreneur who started and owned several small businesses here in Colorado. Mr. Coffman also served with distinction in both the U.S. Army and the Marine Corps and voluntarily took an unpaid leave of absence from the Colorado Legislature in 1990 to return to active duty as an infantry officer in Operation Desert Storm. Mr. Coffman retired as a Major from the Marine Corps Reserve in 1994.

Mr. Coffman is a graduate of the University of Colorado and the Senior Executive Program for State and Local Government at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
