As the candidate with the broadest economic experience (8 years at the US Treasury Department), strongest leadership record (a retired US Marine Corps Colonel and twice elected District Attorney) and longest tenure of public service (31 years) in the race for State Treasurer, I will be that essential economic policy partner for a Republican Governor. Or, if the unthinkable happens, I will be a critical counterweight to a Democratic governor ready to impose economic plans that will take a bite out of your wallet on taxes, TABOR, or entitlements.Read more

Colorado’s Public Employees’ Retirement Association system is going broke. Colorado’s teachers, firefighters, and state troopers are among PERA’s 560,000 members who are expecting retirement benefits in 20 or 30 years, but who, under the current system, may not be able to actually receive them. Ensuring retirees will receive their benefits, while also protecting taxpayers, should be the top priority for Colorado’s next state treasurer and for Colorado’s legislature.
The seven candidates for Colorado treasurer all have their focus for what they would do if elected next year, but few have focused their campaigns on what that office actually does.
Most have touted their fiscal conservativeness or ability to balance budgets.
