By electing Chris Tobe, Kentucky voters have the opportunity to restore relevancy to the office of state auditor. His aptitudes, education, training and experience far exceed those of the other candidates in the race combined, including those of the sitting state auditor.
Chris led the state auditor’s first examination of Kentucky’s public pension plans in 1997-98, and that perspective later led him to become a thorn-in-the-flesh of plan management when he was an appointed trustee. He has kept the pressure on by shining a light on corruption and illegal and unethical investment practices.
Chris’s real-world knowledge of finance and investments makes him the best qualified watchdog we can employ for the next four years. His time-tested thick skin makes him our best hope for standing up to the entrenched greedy interests that have deprived us of prudent and productive public investments.
Kentucky faces a fiscal crisis. Now is not the time for on-the-job training in the state auditor’s office.
