My Fellow Coloradans,
We are faced with an unprecedented global health crisis and a challenging economic landscape. I hope you and your families are safe and are maintaining a positive outlook as much as possible.
In the Colorado Department of the Treasury we have quickly adapted to the new realities of the market and daily operations. The investment team does not invest state dollars in the stock market and the state's dollars remain safe. We are working diligently to maintain our daily operations, including safely investing state dollars, administering programs like the Senior and Veteran Property Tax Deferrals and returning unclaimed property.
If you are looking for some extra cash you may have some waiting for you in the Great Colorado Payback. Our unclaimed property continues to process claims on a daily basis - check yours at colorado.findyourunclaimedproperty.com.
Since Governor Polis declared a state of emergency, I have been involved in several groups devoted to ensuring stability in the state’s economy. I have joined the Governor’s Emergency Council for Economic Stabilization and Growth Council (GECESG) and am working specifically with the Financial Services and Workforce and Educations subcommittees. This council is acting in an advisory capacity to work to limit negative economic impact to the state due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
In addition, I have been advocating on behalf of Colorado citizens in the negotiations of Federal legislation over the past two weeks and will continue to play a role in any future Federal decisions, with a particular focus on fiscal support for the states and getting greater stability in the markets.

As always, please reach out if you have any questions.
