“I am running to protect your wallet”
7/29/17  Senator Kevin Lundberg (R, Berthoud) announced his intention to seek the Republican nomination for the open seat of the Colorado State Treasurer at the Larimer County Lincoln Day Dinner on July 29th 2017.

“I’m running for Treasurer to protect your wallet,” Lundberg said.

Senator Lundberg is well known for his strong support for the Tax Payer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) and other principals of limited government.

“I’m running for Treasurer to protect your wallet,” Lundberg said.

Senator Lundberg is well known for his strong support for the Tax Payer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) and other principals of limited government.

In his fifteen years in the Colorado State Legislature he has acquired a great deal of knowledge and experience in most aspects of state government. He is currently Senate Appropriations chairman, chairman of the Legislative Health Exchange Oversight Committee and a member of the Joint Budget Committee.  

During the years of his tenure at the Capitol he has been the Senate Assistant Majority Leader, chairman of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, vice-chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and has sat on the State Veterans and Military Affairs, Local Government and Energy, and Finance committees. He also helped found and continues to be the chairman of the Republican Study Committee of Colorado.

“My experience has given me a broad understanding of Colorado State Government with an extra emphasis on the Budget and State finances,” Lundberg said. “My goal is to maximize the office of State Treasurer by boldly speaking out on state policies that affect your family budget and the economic vitality of Colorado. I intend to protect your wallet through limited, conservative principles.”
  Senator Lundberg will be conducting a whistle stop announcement tour across the state starting with the front-range on August 3rd. He will begin the day in Loveland at 10:00 am, next, Denver at noon, and his final stop for the day will be at 2:00 pm in Colorado Springs. Precise location and the listing of other cities will be posted on his website, KevinLundberg.com.

How Do You Respond to Attack Ads?
Attack ads drive people crazy during election season, but they will never go away. Can you spot an attack ad? Look for the following characteristics: The opponent’s picture is a candid, grayed-out shot that makes him or her look sinister and having evil intent. The “facts” are deliberately misstated, taken completely out of context, or only contain a partial truth. In contrast, the candidate’s photo is polished and friendly looking, with rosy sounding promises. Does this sound familia... Read More Attack ads drive people crazy during election season, but they will never go away. Can you spot an attack ad? Look for the following characteristics: The opponent’s picture is a candid, grayed-out shot that makes him or her look sinister and having evil intent. The “facts” are deliberately misstated, taken completely out of context, or only contain a partial truth. In contrast, the candidate’s photo is polished and friendly looking, with rosy sounding promises. Does this sound familiar? It has been my policy to not attack my opponent with negative ads. Unfortunately, some opponents generate many negative and inaccurate attack ads, calling them ‘infographics’, with the promise of more to come. If you need an inoculation of the truth, check out my policies on my website.

I am often criticized because I always defend life, which means standing up for the unborn, the elderly, and the terminally ill. Some have also said I should not be a champion for the timeless institutions of marriage and the family. These are badges I am honored to wear, but even so, when my legislative record is considered, it is still a very small fraction of all of my work in the Colorado Legislature. The vast majority of the measures I have introduced focused on economic and regulatory issues and have nothing to do with cultural issues.

Of the 177 measures I have introduced in the legislature, the majority were specifically designed to empower the citizen and limit the size and scope of government. The measures I have introduced to reduce the size and control of government include educational tax credit bills, Medicaid reform bills, bills and constitutional ballot measures to create a long term savings system for the state (requiring the state to not spend all of our money in the annual budget), bills to end the government prohibition on deep discounts for gas and prescription drugs, bills placing limits on the use of red light cameras, the S.I.P. bill I ran to try to save Colorado citizens hundreds of millions of dollars in increased electric utility costs, bills to return a portion of severance taxes to the taxpayer, a resolution to urge Congress to stop earmarking, another resolution urging Congress to fix their policy that has prematurely terminated the tax-exempt status of tens of thousands of non-profit charities, a bill to require the TSA to fully disclose our rights as Colorado citizens when being electronically “strip searched” at airports, eliminating onerous rules by the state for citizens copying and distributing Colorado statutes, rolling back the excessive fees (taxes) on our cars, and sponsoring bills to stop the expensive and ineffectual emissions testing in Northern Colorado. This is just a small portion of the things I have tackled in the state legislature to reduce the size and scope of government.

Often negative press comes as a result of my not voting exactly how somebody wanted on a piece of legislation. I will always stand strong on conservative principles and vote accordingly. As a Republican conservative in Colorado, one cannot expect to get glowing press reports in the mainstream media.

Senator Lundberg Calls on the University of Colorado to End Censorship
In the final minutes of the special session in 2012, Senator Kevin Lundberg took a moment to notify the Senate of a concern he has regarding First Amendment rights being suppressed on the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado.

A new policy had been adopted which prevents any “canvassing” on the campus without specific permission from the school. “Canvassing,” for their purposes, is defined as handing anything to anybody on the campus.

Read More In the final minutes of the special session in 2012, Senator Kevin Lundberg took a moment to notify the Senate of a concern he has regarding First Amendment rights being suppressed on the Boulder campus of the University of Colorado.

A new policy had been adopted which prevents any “canvassing” on the campus without specific permission from the school. “Canvassing,” for their purposes, is defined as handing anything to anybody on the campus.

Lundberg pointed out that even if permission is granted, the activity is still restricted to a limited number of locations on the campus. This prohibition applies to citizen’s initiative petitions, and anyone “…offering information about services or sales; and/or distributing any literature, flier, coupon book, sample, promotional item, coupon or any other tangible item.” All types of groups are being affected by this policy. Earlier this year, the Gideons International group was prevented from holding their annual Bible distribution project on the Boulder campus of CU.

Lundberg stated “Our state’s flagship institution of higher education should be a place where ideas are freely exchanged, not a place of censorship.”
