Treasurer’s Calendar & Expenses

Committed to transparency

State Treasurer Curtis Loftis believes people have a right to know what their elected leaders are doing on the job. His belief in transparency and accountability has created this page, which is a one stop shop to see what the Treasurer is doing on public time. From detailed expense reports and an online calendar, it's all here for you to see.

Due to security reasons, the Treasurer's Calendar will no longer be posted ahead of time online. Treasurer Loftis is still dedicated to transparancy, so you can see his archived calendars, and his travel expenses below.

Treasurer's Travel Expenses

Treasurer Loftis is pleased to post this comprehensive accounting of his travel expenses that are paid by the taxpayers.

Anytime Treasurer Loftis stays in a hotel, buys an airline ticket, uses a state car, or incurs any travel expense it is documented and publicly reported.

Use of the State Plane

Treasurer Loftis has used the state plane sparingly for travel at certain times throughout his tenure. The Treasurer has only used the plane five times since taking office, and he only uses the plane in special circumstances--such as scheduling conflicts, last minute personnel additions, or the high cost of travel to the state if using commercial airlines. Additionally use of the State Plan often spared the state the burden of costly hotel rooms in New York, Boston, etc.

Flight Log Trip Manifest

02/06/2014: Treasurer Loftis and a staff member from the State Treasurer's Office traveled to Charleston, SC for an Unclaimed Property event that was planned before a last minute Budget and Control Board meeting was scheduled. Treasurer Loftis would not have been able to attend the Board Meeting and make it to the event in time without the use of the plane. The trip allowed the State Treasurer's Office Unclaimed Property Program to be featured on the evening news for more than two hours. This public service gave the UPP exposure to thousands of previously unreached citizens. The total cost was $1,105.00.
