MONTGOMERY – State Treasurer Young Boozer on Friday released a statement on the death of Lucy Baxley. Read the full statement below.
“I am saddened by the news of the passing of Lucy Baxley, who served as Alabama’s 37th State Treasurer for two terms beginning in 1995. As a banker, I had the pleasure of working with her to establish Alabama’s SAFE program which provides for the security of public funds deposited with financial institutions. CollegeCounts, Alabama’s 529 college savings fund, was also launched under her administration. This fund has grown to over $1.3 billion and has helped thousands of families save for higher education since it began in 2001.”
“She was a caring public servant and served our state well. I convey my condolences and send my prayers to her family.”
