County Trustee Mike Moran comments on Representative Ray Scott’s bill to eliminate the Public Trustee shows that Mr. Moran is not qualified to hold his position.

Mr. Moran disingenuous comment that his Office does not cost the County money is outrageous. Those fees he collects would be collected by the County if his position did not exist. Instead of the surplus, all of the fees would be in the County coffers. The salary for Mr. Moran and his staff are outside the County control as is his entire office budget.

If Mr. Moran decides that 100% of the fees should be spent on his office, there is nothing the County can do about it. I encourage Mr. Moran to review the stories the Denver Post has published the last year and examine the pattern of abuse in these offices.

Clearly, Representative Scott has a complete understanding of what goes on in the County Trustee’s Office. Scott believes that the “fees” should be completely under the control of the County involved, not an appointed patron of the Governor.

I call on residents of Mesa County to call Governor Hickenlooper. Demand the Governor fire Mr. Moran from his County Trustee position. His comments in the paper prove his lack of qualification.
