Young J. Boozer, III is the current Alabama State Treasurer. He has served in this position since 2011.[1] Boozer, a Republican, was first elected on November 2, 2010, and assumed office on January 17, 2011. Boozer's first term ended on January 19, 2015, and he ran for re-election in November 2014.

[2] He ran unopposed for the Republican nomination in the primary on June 3, 2014, and faced no major party challenge in the November 4 general election. Young Boozer won the general election on November 4, 2014, without opposition.

Before becoming treasurer, he served as deputy state finance director under Governor Bob Riley. Prior to entering government service, he was an executive vice president at Colonial Bank. Born in Birmingham, he was raised in Tuscaloosa.[3]


Boozer was born and raised in Alabama, both in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. He attended Stanford University for his undergraduate degree in economics and later earned a master’s degree in finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, Boozer launched a career in finance. His resume includes positions with Citibank in New York, Crocker National Bank in Los Angeles, Coral Petroleum in Houston and Colonial Bank in Montgomery.[1]

His entrance onto the political scene came in 2007, when he left his job as executive vice president at Colonial Bank to become the deputy finance director for the state of Alabama, serving under then-Gov. Bob Riley. As deputy, he played an integral part in restructuring Alabama's bond debt and derivatives. Boozer's performance helped save millions of dollars in taxpayer money, and motivated him to make a bid for public office.
