New Mexico native Arthur Castillo announced his candidacy today for State Treasurer. As the former CFO for the Office of State Treasurer and Director of Budget and Finance, Castillo has the passion for New Mexico and experience to manage the State Treasurer’s Office.

“As a proven financial planner, budgeting professional, grant writer, and administrator, I plan to restore honesty, responsibility, and accountability to the Office of State Treasurer,” Castillo said. “With ethical and responsible leadership, we will work together to right New Mexico’s financial woes.”

As a fourth generation New Mexican, son of a World War II Veteran, father of a Navy Lieutenant and a Veteran himself, Arthur Castillo understands the value of hard work and service. Growing up in humble roots, he has firsthand experience with the dedication it takes to achieve the American dream. 


With a goal of protecting the permanent fund, maximizing efficiency in the office, and improving financial education not only among the staff, but also among the public, Castillo is ready to serve New Mexico once again. Citing an embarrassing lack of transparency as a primary concern within the current administration, Castillo reinforced his commitment to fair and transparent government. Castillo also said he will make employee excellence a priority of the office by building a highly professional staff to reach the goals of the state treasurer.

“Over the last decade, the Democratic Party has abandoned the common-sense conservatives like me. I found a home in the Republican Party and came to know it as the party that understands job creation, personal freedom, and mirrors my personal values,” said Castillo.
Arthur Castillo resides in Albuquerque with his wife of seventeen years.
