Larimer County Treasurer


Rick Bohn (D)

 

Information below is from the following website: https://bohnforlarimer.com/

 

Rick Bohn worked for over 20 years in Illinois government and politics, pushing forward reform candidates and progressive agendas.

  • As Legislative Liaison for the Illinois Department of Insurance, he took on big insurance companies and insisted on putting people before profits.
  • On campaigns, he managed budgets, salaries, and was responsible for hiring in fast-paced environments with zero room for error.
  • As Chief of Staff for a reform Chicago alderman, he managed and maintained an annual budget of $1.3 million.

"I know what it's like to insist on and push through honest, responsible budgeting in adverse conditions."

 

Rick brings these values and beliefs to his campaign:

  • The right of every Coloradan to fair and equal treatment under the law is at stake. Our government loots our public lands and sacrifices our environment to corporate interests rather than protects them. Hard work is no longer a guarantee of access to healthcare, housing, education, or a secure future. Rather than be on the side of small businesses and local economies, our government caters to special-interests and corporations.
  • Every Coloradan is entitled to choose how they live their own life.
  • We need to start planning for our future by investing in our education, infrastructure, and transportation.
  • In a representative democracy, we each have a responsibility to speak up on behalf of our community. Now more than ever, voices for change are critical.
