Governor John Hickenlooper has immediately accepted nine of Colorado’s appointed public trustees’ resignation today. The resignations become effective in 30 days.
One other appointed public trustee retired last week two days after a Denver Post report written by David Migoya outlined questionable spending practices by those individuals.
Governor Hickenlooper is expected to name replacements within 45 days.
I sincerely hope the governor, when naming these replacements will appoint public trustees who will not take contributions from foreclosure law firms, banks and other lending institutions. Contributions would include lunches and other gifts as well as monetary donations and favors.
Public Trustees should not be influenced by big pockets and should consist of personnel who will make fair and neutral decisions and remain impartial and not be solicited by those foreclosure law firms, banks and lending institutions.
Governor Hickenlooper, from what I understand, wants to reinstall confidence in the public and that will only be done by employing impartial public trustees working for the good of the Colorado homeowners and the lenders.
Two of the public trustees among Colorado’s 64 counties said they would reapply for their positions.
Please take the time to direct all concerns regarding the Public Trustees to Governor Hickenlooper’s office at: http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite/GovHickenlooper/CBON/1249674240317
