A new release Friday reports that Carmen Alldritt filed paperwork to run for Kansas State Treasurer.
“Kansas is being led down a path of financial ruin by Gov. Sam Brownback,” said Alldritt. “It’s time to replace partisan politicians with moderate, fiscally responsible leaders who will do what’s best for Kansas families.”
Alldritt is a distinguished public servant, having served as Harper County Treasurer for fifteen years before becoming Director of Vehicles under Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. During her time in state government, Alldritt developed a cutting edge fraud prevention and identity security management program that established Kansas’ Department of Vehicles as a model for other states.
“My time as an elected official in Harper County and my work with the Kansas Legislature cemented my belief in bipartisan problem solving. 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.”
“Kansans have seen what Gov. Brownback and his handpicked candidates like Ron Estes have done to our state,” said Joan Wagnon, KDP Chair. “Over the past three years we’ve seen our credit downgraded, a loss of trust in government, and partisan politics at its worst. I had the pleasure of working with Carmen Alldritt and know she’s a sensible problem solver who will put Kansas first.”
Alldritt, 63, lives in Topeka and works as a business development consultant. In her spare time, Carmen is a shotgun instructor for the Department of Wildlife and Parks BOW workshops and enjoys gardening.
