The Mississippi State Treasurer is, in many ways, the chief financial officer of the state. The treasurer is in charge of receiving, disbursing and investing state funds. The treasurer is also in charge of the issuance of state debt, as well as paying interest on the state’s bond and note obligations. The treasurer also represents the Executive Branch on more than a dozen boards and commissions.

The Republican candidate for treasurer in 2019 is David McRae.

The Democratic candidate for treasurer is Addie Lee Green.
