Chris Nevitt is my choice for Denver City Auditor, and I hope yours, too. I have known Chris since his first run for City Council, and support his candidacy for Auditor for three simple reasons. First, he has great qualifications and knows city government backwards and forwards. He has a PhD in political economy and 8 years of experience on City Council. Second, he shares my values. He’s been a champion of parks, sustainability, economic opportunity, affordable housing, and innovation in government, including being an early supporter of the My Denver card. Finally, he believes in bringing people together to get things done, but he’s also not afraid to stand up for what he thinks is right. Chris and I do not agree on every issue, but I have no doubt he will listen to the community and champion the needs of ordinary citizens and small businesses. Chris Nevitt is a great candidate who will do a terrific job for us, and has the record to prove it.
Tom O’Brien was approved by the Colorado Legislator to be the State Auditor 12 years. He has guided a large department of people to conduct 750 State audits. Saving the state $200,000,000. He has been a licensed CPA in the state since 1974. Look at his web site, seeing all of these facts, O’Brien has the leadership and experience to be the best Auditor for our city.
I don’t see any Auditing or Accounting experience in the background of Nevitt.
He keeps saying “none of the others have.” Noting Nevitt has been on the City Council for 8 years, how can he conduct an audit of the Council without it being a conflict of interest? He has accepted money from developers that are chosen by the Council.
Watching the two debates, Nevitt stumbles his way with his answers to the questions. He clearly has no idea how to run this office. He has absolutely no experience to run this office the way it should be run.
