“Join us for a conversation with Brian Johnson who is running to be the Democratic nominee for Pima County Treasurer. He’ll discuss his campaign and his goals and aspirations in serving the people of Pima County as their Treasurer.

Please Register in Advance for this Event:


Brian Johnson is a 26-year resident of Pima County; his home is in the semi-rural community of Picture Rocks. He was born and grew up in Long Island, New York, and went to college at the University of Vermont and East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania, where he obtained his B.A. Degree. Brian has been a lifelong Democrat, having cast his first vote for President for Jimmy Carter in 1976. He has been a member of the Democrats for Picture Rocks for eight years, serving as its Chair in 2021. He is also a member of the Tucson Mountain Association.

Brian is running for Treasurer to ensure responsible management of public funds through transparency and a robust data system that’s integrated with the Assessor, Recorder, and folks in the County Finance Department, who currently handle many of the Treasurer’s duties regarding property tax. He understands the need for the Treasurer’s office to play a meaningful role in our Pima County government; and manages investments with a return that emphasizes values of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Climate Awareness.

Brian brings fourteen years of professional experience in the county government to the table. Prior roles in the Assessor’s office and Finance & Risk Management provide the expertise needed to navigate the complexities of property tax administration. His involvement in property tax litigation has educated him in the statutes governing the Treasurer’s responsibilities and limitations. Since leaving employment with the county, Brian has served as a Pima County appointee to the Arizona State Board of Equalization.”

Carolyn’s note: Brian is running against activist Sami Hamed for Pima County Treasurer in the July 30, 2024 Dem primary. Long time Republican Treasurer Beth Ford is retiring next month, and her Republican Chief Deputy Chris Ackerley (former House Rep. and nephew to former Mayoral candidate Ed Ackerley, an Independent) is running for the seat.
