Over the weekend, at the Lincoln County Lincoln Day Dinner, State Senator Kevin Lundberg announced he was jumping in the GOP primary for State Treasurer. Currently, there are three other candidates vying for the GOP nod – State Rep. Polly Lawrence, State Rep. Justin Everett, and Routt County Treasurer Brita Horn. Lundberg has spent 15 years in the state legislature, first as a state representative and, now, as a state senator.
Here’s what Lundberg said about his experience and priorities:
“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.”
So far, the only Democrat to jump into the race is Rep. Steve Lebsock, who led voters on a guessing game (until we spoiled it) about his race. Hopefully, for his sake, his campaign will be more transparent and less confusing. On second thought, you just be you, Rep. Lebsock.
Lundberg will kick off his campaign with a tour of Colorado’s Front Range on August 3, starting in Loveland and ending in Colorado Springs.
