CANDIDATE TRANSCRIPT


Hello, my name is Gerald Kilpatrick and I’m running for State Treasurer as an American Constitution Party Candidate.

Politics as usual has failed us. Are you tired of dishonesty in politics?  We are the party of “Integrity, Liberty & Prosperity”.  We believe that all elected officials should be Public Servants entrusted to represent you, not rule over you.  We feel that government is the most ineffective, inefficient, and expensive way to get anything done. 

Government should only be involved to keep things fair, to keep us safe, and to prevent criminal activity.

So, you might be asking yourself, what does this have to do with the State Treasurer Office.  We need someone who is a fiscal conservative from a truly fiscally conservative party.

To the Democrats out there, I say stop raising our taxes to fund your pet projects that we can’t afford, and that don’t solve the real problem.  And to the Republicans, I say stop funneling the money we do have to your cronies and country club buddies. This runs up the costs of projects making them unaffordable and creates yet another problem.

As a CPA with a Masters Degree and 36 years of corporate, small business, and personal accounting experience, I want to do something no one else seems willing or able to do.  I want to kick out the lobbyists and high rollers looking for a handout.  I want to restore integrity in government. 

The State Treasurer’s office holds the checkbook.  Let’s make sure every dollar is spent wisely and openly accounted for. We seriously need to establish a Colorado “Peoples Bank” that is not federally insured so the marijuana industry can bank here legally.

As far as PERA, the budgets have been and are unrealistic.  You can’t solve the PERA problem by using fantasy budgets.  Since 2010 the unfunded liabilities have grown from $21 to $32 billion; a 52% increase. 

I am running for State Treasurer because I actually care about others.  For years I have volunteered my services to non-profits and to people who could not afford a CPA.  My family and I are willing for me to take a pay cut, in order to serve my community as StateTreasurer. It’s that important to us.

Gerald Kilpatrick for State Treasurer.
