Rosario Marin: 19(?)(?)—: U.S. Treasurer.



On August 16, 2001, Rosario Marin was sworn in as the 41st Treasurer of the United States by U.S. Secretary Paul O'Neill. By accepting the oath of office, Marin became the first Mexican-born citizen to head up the Treasury. Her confirmation was also notable as she also became the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in the Bush Administration. Her success as a politician has been extraordinary given that she is a Republican that has ascended the ranks while courting a mostly Democratic constituency. However, Marin's skill and accomplishments easily transcend political party lines.
