Alabama Treasurer Young Boozer seeking 2nd term

— TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama State Treasurer Young Boozer is officially seeking a second term.

The Republican treasurer announced his plans Wednesday while in Tuscaloosa to address Girls State.

Boozer said that since being elected in 2010, he's led the effort to reach a successful settlement of the state's prepaid college tuition plan. He said he's also streamlined the state's unclaimed property process and worked with the Legislature to pass a law that saved money by consolidating treasury budgets. Boozer said he will seek a second term in the 2014 election because there is more work he wants to do.

Boozer was deputy state finance director in Gov. Bob Riley's administration before running for treasurer.
