State treasurer challenger knocks tax cuts

By The Herald Staff | 6/2/2014

TOPEKA — Criticizing the governor’s tax plan and promising responsible leadership, Democrat Carmen Alldritt, Topeka, filed Friday to run for state treasurer.

“Kansas is being led down a path of financial ruin by Gov. Sam Brownback,” Alldritt said. “It’s time to replace partisan politicians with moderate, fiscally responsible leaders who will do what’s best for Kansas families.”

TOPEKA — Criticizing the governor’s tax plan and promising responsible leadership, Democrat Carmen Alldritt, Topeka, filed Friday to run for state treasurer.

“Kansas is being led down a path of financial ruin by Gov. Sam Brownback,” Alldritt said. “It’s time to replace partisan politicians with moderate, fiscally responsible leaders who will do what’s best for Kansas families.”

The Democrat candidate is expected to challenge the incumbent treasurer, Republican Ron Estes, who was elected in 2010, in the general election.

Alldritt served as Harper County treasurer for 15 years before becoming the state’s director of vehicles under former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Alldritt now works as a business development consultant.

“My time as an elected official in Harper County and my work with the Kansas Legislature cemented my belief in bipartisan problem solving,” Alldritt said. “Kansans will always be better off when we come together over shared priorities like fiscal responsibility, hard work, and open government. Those are the values I will bring to the office of state treasurer.”
