ELECTION: Kelley supported for state auditor

After reading your article (9-7) describing the allegations against Troy Kelley raised by his opponent, I was upset. I worked with Kelley in the private sector and even wrote the letters reimbursing his reconveyance clients – and sent out the reimbursement checks.

I have worked with many different people and companies in the private sector, and I know that Kelley maintains the highest integrity and moral standard. As someone who has worked with him and knows him personally, I know that he will make a fantastic state auditor.

    Sharon, I’m glad to hear you admire Kelley. But, the evidence is overwhelming. He sued his employer for wrongful termination so the employer produced a video of him stealing a painting. When the court requested credit card evidence that he was out of state when the painting was stolen, he dropped the lawsuit. Who does that?

    In his own sworn testimony, he misappropriated over $3 million in client funds (home buyers, not rich corporations), shuffled the funds through multiple shell corporations using his home address and planned to move the funds to Belize to avoid taxes. Who does that?

    I trust that you had a good relationship with him and he’s a nice enough guy. But, we cannot and must not trust him in a position of great fiduciary responsibility.

    We have the opportunity to vote for a skilled, qualified man with real world audit experience (Kelley has none). And, we have the opportunity to elect someone with an impeccable record. The auditor position is too important to gamble on someone with Troy’s embarrassing past.
