I met Tim Walsworth while serving on the board of the United Way of Southwest Colorado many years ago. While on the board, Tim reinforced the importance of financial integrity and transparency for every penny that someone donates to the organization. With his leadership and management expertise, anyone who donates to the United Way of Southwest Colorado could be assured their donations were being used in a responsible way with vigorous oversight.
His competency in accounting, auditing, and tight control of public funds add up to fiscal responsibility.
Problems in the treasurer's office such as a high turnover rate have cost local taxpayers. Although I do appreciate the current treasurer owning up to her shortcomings, (see Durango Herald March 3, 2017 article: Work piles up as county treasurer's office faces staff, procedural problems), why pay for more audit fees and make excuses for errors when it can get done right the first time?
Tim's proven expertise to maintain and account for complex financial funds make him a stellar candidate for treasurer.
Vote Tim Walsworth for La Plata County Treasurer in June's primary.
