Kimberly Yee Featured in Governing Magazine

(Phoenix) – Kimberly Yee, candidate for Arizona State Treasurer is featured in the April issue of Governing magazine, after the Governing Institute selected Kimberly Yee to take part in its 2018 Women in Government Leadership Program. Governing magazine is a national monthly publication covering state and local government issues in the United States.

The April issue of the magazine features the 25 women serving in state and local offices across the United States who are members of the 2018 Women in Government Leadership Program class, including Kimberly Yee.

According to the article, "Kimberly Yee may be the first Asian American woman ever elected to the Arizona Legislature, and the first woman to serve as the state's Senate majority leader since Sandra Day O'Connor in 1973, but her path to public service is not altogether surprising."

"I was class president for three out of my four years in high school," Yee says in the article. "And I started working for my first public official when I was still in college, in my county attorney's office."
