Some people may be asking, “What does this investigation of Karen Jeppesen and her antics have to do with the current Treasurer’s race between Denise Lindsay and Craig McAllister?” My answer, EVERYTHING!
At this point, most voters likely know that Karen Jeppesen is endorsing McAllister, but what most voters do not know is that Karen and her husband, Scott, are running and financing McAllister’s campaign. Karen has also been consistently campaigning for McAllister during daytime hours while she should be at work as our Treasurer.
This race is between Lindsay and McAllister. This race is about selecting the most qualified and experienced candidate to be our next Treasurer. McAllister is the former financial officer for a company (Utah Carzz) that the County investigated for illegal accounting practices. Is this really who we want handling our tax dollars?
Lindsay has 20 years of private, corporate and public accounting experience. In the short time she has been our Deputy Treasurer she has saved taxpayers thousands of dollars due to her experience and integrity. Because of Denise’s honesty and intelligence the Treasurer’s office is now in compliance with Utah State Law. Denise is the only candidate with the experience, credentials and knowledge to be our next Treasurer, and to bring the office into the twenty-first century.
Why won’t you hear any of this information from Denise Lindsay? That is because Denise is committed to running a positive campaign, and refuses to say anything negative about her opponent. I bring this information to light, because I think it is imperative to voters making an informed decision on June 24.
