Seale considers bid for state treasurer

Former state Treasurer Bob Seale is mulling a bid for his former job and will meet with the governor next month, he said today.

Seale told me Gov. Brian Sandoval had asked him to consider it. An accountant who was treasurer from 1995-1999 and subsequently was a one-term assemblyman, Seale has receded into private life and now works in an accounting firm with Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers.

Seale had just retruned from a months-long trip across the country, including a visit to Civil War battlefields and a return journey down Route 66. He has a trip to the Panama Canal planned early next year.

The always affable Seale said he doesn't know if he wants to give up his lifestyle, so he leans no for now. But he's not ruling it out.

"I want to see what (Sandoval) has to say," Seale said of his meeting with the governor.

Controller Kim Wallin is the Democratic anointee. (UPDATE: I had said Andrew Martin was seeking the post, too. Of course he is running for Wallin's job. Mea culpa.)
