Treasurer: John McMillan wins

Alabama’s current agriculture and industries commissioner, John McMillan, has won the GOP nomination for state treasurer.

No Democrats qualified, so winning the Republican nomination is tantamount to winning the election.

McMillan was running against Colbert County Commissioner and college instructor David Black and financial planner Stephen Evans of Dothan.

The office is now held by term-limited incumbent Young Boozer, who can’t seek re-election.

The state treasurer is responsible for the cash management of all state funds, plus bond management, unclaimed property and college savings programs.
