Glenn Hegar
Comptroller of Public Accounts @State of Texas
Glenn Hegar is Texas' chief financial officer — the state's treasurer, check writer, tax collector, procurement officer and revenue estimator – a job that is particularly important these days as the state addresses budget concerns brought on by the impacts of the COVID pandemic and weakness in oil and gas markets. As the CFO of the world's 9th largest economy, Hegar is charged with maintaining the state's fiscal health. Having served in both the Texas House and Senate, Hegar has gained a reputation for customer service, transparency in government, and conservative fiscal management. Hegar is a 1993 graduate of Texas A&M University and a graduate of St. Mary's University, where he earned a Master of Arts and his law degree. At the University of Arkansas, he earned his Masters of Law. Hegar is a sixth-generation Texan who grew up farming land that has been in his family since the mid-1800s. He is joining us today from his home in Katy which he shares with his wife Dara and his children
