An issue in treasurer's race

Posted By on Sat, Oct 30, 2010 at 10:31 AM

Bobby Tullis, the former legislator from Mineral Springs who's the Green Party candidate for treasurer, pledged today if he was elected not to accept political contributions from bankers. He called on incumbent Democrat Martha Shoffner to return her campaign contributions from bankers. It's an old custom. About all the treasurer does is invest state money — in banks.

Tullis also said he'd sell the state-owned Tahoe that Shoffner drives.

Tullis has a few blemishes on his public record and it's late in the game, but you can't really knock the points.
