As Treasurer: I will keep our budget balanced, our spending in check, and plan carefully for our futures to ensure that Fort Collins residents can afford to stay in their homes. I believe that the key to good governance is Transparency, Accountability, and Rejecting the Status Quo.
Transparency: I will bring the office of the Larimer County Treasurer into the 21st century through sophisticated use of technology, social media, and improved communications. No longer will you have to search for the simplest information about how YOUR money is being spent.
Accountability: Rising property taxes are forcing Larimer county residents to question whether they will be able to stay in their homes. Most people don't realize that the County Treasurer has a responsibility to keep us informed about property tax assessment appeals, exemptions, and abatements. As Treasurer, I will ensure that the County works for YOU.
Rejecting the Status Quo: We deserve better than the status quo. As Treasurer, I will prioritize running an office that reflects your needs and desires, not special interests. Once in office, I will work with the Legislature to allow Larimer County to put money in Credit Unions. Your money should go back into the community, not into the pockets of big banks.
