Randall Melchert was a Republican candidate for Wisconsin Treasurer in the 2014 elections.[1]


Campaign themes


The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel uncovered a massive backlog in the unclaimed property department after it was moved from the Treasurer's office to the Department of Revenue. Melchert called for a return of the department to the Treasurer's office.[2]

Melchert said, "This is further evidence of the need for a directly accountable, elected state treasurer to take personal responsibility for programs like unclaimed property. When I am elected, I will push for the return of unclaimed property to the treasurer's office."[2]


Melchert was endorsed by the following:

  • The Sun Prairie Star[3]
  • The Waukesha County Taxpayer Association[4]
