In an editorial this morning, the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel endorsed Republican Lang Sias to be Colorado’s next treasurer.
Titled “Tough call in race for state treasurer,” the Daily Sentinel’s editorial board calls for “ideological balance in our state government.”
Noting Sias’s impressive background and his bipartisan track record, the Sentinel says that Sias would be the man for striking balance in government:
“When we look at state houses across the country, the ones that are dominated by one party eventually succumb to groupthink and end up with bad policy. We think it is helpful, even in a state that typically votes strongly for one party, for the state government to include some voices from the other side…
… That said, we think Sias would also be effective and bring another perspective to our state government that could keep us from going too far down the one-party rule line. For that reason, if you are still deciding who to support for treasurer, we encourage you to give Sias a chance and consider supporting him in this election.”
