Cardinale Votes to Confirm Treasurer Nominee Andrew Eristoff

February 18, 2010

Senator Gerald Cardinale, senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he voted to confirm acting Treasurer Andrew Eristoff because of the remarkable knowledge and great character the nominee demonstrated at today’s confirmation hearing.

“This is a nominee who clearly demonstrated he understands the depth of problems faced by our state and is ready to work hard to create a government that is more efficient and competent at doing the people’s business,” Senator Cardinale said.

“He also showed his willing to work with legislators on both sides of the aisle, and is willing to listen to any ideas that will make our state run better,” Senator Cardinale said.

“I voted for his approval in committee, and I urge my Senate colleagues to unanimously back the nomination when it comes before the full Senate,” Senator Cardinale said.
