why brita HORN is the right choice for state treasurer
BATTLE TESTED - FIGHTING FOR YOU!
You may remember seeing this article about a former Routt County Deputy Treasurer arrested on embezzlement charges. A terrible example of a corrupt government employee run amok, stealing thousands of taxpayer dollars.
How was she caught? She was caught because when Brita Horn took office as County Treasurer, the people finally had a champion in the Treasurer's Office who would not accept the status quo. Brita implemented new checks and balances in the Treasurer's Office, exposed the fraud, and promptly fired the offending employee.
In any organization, there are going to be people (like this former employee) who LOVE the status quo. That is why you need a battle tested State Treasurer with a proven track record of exposing fraud and corruption, rejecting the broken status quo, and FIGHTING for you, the taxpayer, each and every day.
BRITA IS NOT LOOKING FOR A JOB, SHE'S LOOKING TO SERVE
Political observers in Colorado often point out that the State Treasurer's job is often an office sought by term-limited legislators, or by ambitious politicians with their eye on the Governor's Mansion.
Brita Horn is not a politician, she's not term-limited, and she's not using this office as a stepping stone. She is running for one reason, and one reason only: To fight for you and serve Colorado's taxpayers each and every day she's in office.
SHE'S THE ONLY CANDIDATE WHO CAN WIN IN NOVEMBER
The fact is that all of the other Republican candidates for State Treasurer have only won in safe Republican strongholds, or have never won a contested election against a Democrat. In winning election in Democratic territory as Routt County Treasurer and Public Trustee, Brita Horn proved her ability to win votes among Unaffiliated voters. That ability is crucial to winning statewide. It's as simple as that!
SHE'S THE ONLY CANDIDATE WHO HAS ACTUALLY DONE THE JOB
Would you hire a plumber to fix your car? How about a baker who's never stepped foot in the kitchen? Of course not! Then why would you hire anyone but a Treasurer to be our next State Treasurer?
THE FACT IS THAT BRITA HORN IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE IN THIS RACE WHO HAS ACTUALLY DONE THE JOB. As a Treasurer, she is tested and proven, and applies conservative principles to the job each and every day. With Brita in the State Treasurer's Office, there would be no learning on-the-job. From Day 1, she will be the fighter we need and the champion of the taxpayer!
