Mead Treadwell on Technology
Made millions from high-tech camera on Google Street View
Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell appears to land on top of the four major candidates for Senate when it comes to reported personal wealth. His assets ranged from $3.4 million to $7.7 million. Meanwhile, his debt ranges from $580,000 to $1.2 million.
Treadwell's biggest assets are a rental property in Anchorage and his home in Anchorage, each valued between $500,000 and $1 million. Treadwell, who calls himself a high-tech entrepreneur and says he launched the company that introduced the camera used
by Google Street View, also has a large stake in the stock market.
Treadwell reported earning $99,000 as the state's lieutenant governor in 2012. He also earned deferred income of about $45,000 from Venture Ad Astra, a company specializing in
location and imaging technology he founded in Anchorage.
He reported having between $500,000 and $1 million in a Morgan Stanley money market account, as well as the same amount in a Wells Fargo savings account.
