"It is my distinct pleasure both to endorse Brian Watson’s candidacy for Colorado State Treasurer as well as call him a friend. Having known Brian for many years I have no doubt he is the right man for this crucial job. These are trying financial times in America, Colorado being no exception. Effective, efficient and ethical management of the people’s money and budget has never been more necessary. Through his handling of myriad private-sector transactions Brian has established a reputation and track record of successful financial management that is second to none.

Further, as an activist in the black community myself I have time and again seen Brian make personal sacrifice for the benefit of his fellow man regardless of race, creed or political orientation. The sensitivities and delicate balance with which elected officials must approach their duties and responsibility to work on behalf of constituents is a difficult one. I have seen Brian actively seek counsel, implement community outreach and involvement and work toward harmonizing all Coloradans in a way that is highly unique and necessary as our state becomes a more diverse melting pot.

This kind of awareness, leadership, lack of political ties and cronyism is exactly what our state capitol is in dire need of. Because of his actions, not words, Brian Watson has earned my strongest possible endorsement."

"Of all the candidates, the one that stands out and the one I'd urge your strong support is Brian Watson. I've worked alongside Brian for that last 4 years on the Board of a non-profit and I've known him for a decade. I've seen him first hand guiding his successful business and in speaking in detail in public policy. I've seen him interact with our states most powerful and our states most needy, from urban to rural interactions and conversations. Brian is completely dedicated towards creating opportunities for all Coloradan's regardless of their background, Party Affiliation, economic situation, and life's philosophy. 

Brian Watson is an extraordinary candidate for Colorado State Treasurer.  I am confident that Brian Watson will gain your support and vote, and that he'll be our next Colorado State Treasurer."
