Unclaimed Property Fund must be Fully Funded

The Legislature has spent $514 million of Colorado's Unclaimed Property fund for other purposes. There is still $238 million in the fund, but this unfunded liability of over $500 million is an irresponsible misuse of other people's money entrusted to the Colorado Treasury Department. It must be fixed!

I am Running for State Treasurer!

On July 29 I announced my intention to seek the Republican nomination for the open seat of the Colorado State Treasurer.

I'm running for Treasurer to protect your wallet.

That means I am going to take a conservative position when overseeing the accounts for the State of Colorado. It also means I will be speaking out on behalf of the taxpayers and citizens of Colorado on all issues that affect our freedoms and our pocketbooks.

I am a strong defender of the Tax Payer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) and other principals of limited government.

In my fifteen years in the Colorado State Legislature I have acquired a great deal of knowledge and experience in most aspects of state government. As current Senate Appropriations chairman, chairman of the Legislative Health Exchange Oversight Committee and a member of the Joint Budget Committee I am in a unique position to learn even more about our state's financial intricacies.

During my tenure in the legislature I have also served as Senate Assistant Majority Leader, chairman of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, vice-chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and has sat on the State Veterans and Military Affairs, Local Government and Energy, and Finance committees. I have also helped found and continue as the chairman of the Republican Study Committee of Colorado.

My experience has given me a broad understanding of Colorado State Government with an extra emphasis on the Budget and State finances. My goal is to maximize the office of State Treasurer by boldly speaking out on state policies that affect your family budget and the economic vitality of Colorado. I intend to protect your wallet through limited, conservative principles.

Currently I am conducting a whistle stop announcement tour across the state.

During the 2017 legislative session we did all we could to advance a liberty-loving, limited-government agenda. The Democrats have the majority in the House and we (Republicans) control the Senate. As an advocate for limited government, even with a split of power between the two houses, just saying no to any measures that will exceed the proper limits of civil government is enough to keep Colorado state government headed in the right direction.

As the senator for district 15, comprising most of Larimer county except Fort Collins, it is my honor to serve as chairman of the Health-Exchange Oversight Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee, and be a member in the Joint Budget Committee. I also am the chairman for the Republican Study Committee of Colorado (RSCC) and hold the Senate leadership position of assistant majority leader.

In my fifteen years in the Colorado legislature I have had many opportunities to take the easy way out and leave the hard fight for someone else. That has never been my style. I have been tenaciously introducing bills year after year to go after the big issues, and many of my ideas are slowly taking root. I have pushed for a rainy-day fund, fought to keep the integrity of the Tax Payers Bill of Rights, argued for Medicaid reform, introduced alternatives to our crippling education costs, stood up to protect traditional marriage and the lives of the unborn, and daily fought the insidious growth and power of government over the everyday lives of citizens.

Issues may come and go, but our values never change, and you can know that I will never back down in protecting your freedoms. I believe that governments are instituted among men to protect their inalienable, God-given rights, and that our government was designed for the power to come from the bottom up, not the top down.

For Life and Liberty!
