Q&A with Dave Gill, Republican candidate for Douglas County treasurer


City or town of residence: The outskirts of Sedalia, 33 years.

Profession: Commercial mortgage banker, residential mortgage lender, auditor, photographer.

Related elected-office or public-service experience: Former Chairman of the Douglas County Planning Commission, Republican District captain and precinct committeeman.

Why are you seeking this office?

I've been active in our county for 30 years and desire to continue to contribute to keeping it the best county in Colorado to live. I've been able to contribute to help shape its quality of life and desire to continue serving the citizens of Douglas County.

What makes you the most qualified person for the position?

My many years of experience in the financial industry, including successfully running my own company, gave me a familiarity with bonds, the primary investment that statute allows. I was recruited and trained as an auditor by a $20 billion thrift and also audited at the RTC, where I was entrusted with auditing the largest contracts and sensitive special assignments.  This experience is critical to safeguarding the tax money entrusted to the treasurer. I have experience managing a staff roughly four times the size of the treasurer's office and being responsible for a budget equal to the treasurer's.

What would your top two priorities be if elected?

My top priority would be to safeguard the assets entrusted to the treasurer's office with experience, diligence, and integrity while maintaining liquidity and achieving the best yield consistent with statute, county investment policy and safety. My second priority is to maintain a lean and efficient office that provides high quality service to the citizens of Douglas County.  I've managed staffs of up to 36 and have learned how to manage to achieve this goal.

What else should the voters know about you?

I'm a conservative with a 30-year track record in our county that demonstrates that I can and will work diligently and to provide high-quality service while maintaining a tight budget. I've been married to my wife, Anne, for 46 years and attend the Rock Church in Castle Rock.
