“It has been an honor to serve the state of Alabama as Treasurer, and I am incredibly proud of the accomplishments and steady efforts of the great team I’ve had the pleasure of working with these past several years,” John McMillan said. “I look forward to the new challenge of leading the Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission and will commit to providing the same level of dedication to this role as I’ve done in every other aspect of my career.”

“I’m pleased to appoint Young Boozer as Alabama State Treasurer,” Governor Ivey said, “I could not think of anyone more qualified or better suited to fill the remainder of John’s term.

“I’m honored and grateful Governor Ivey would ask me to serve in this important position once again,” Young Boozer said. “I will hit the ground running and do my best to serve the good people of this great state.”
