A happy ending (and campaign olive branch profferred) in the case of the able former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy, reports FOX 31′s Eli Stokols:
Mayor-elect Michael Hancock is expected to name former Colorado Treasurer Cary Kennedy as the city’s Chief Financial Officer on Wednesday, FOX 31 Denver has learned.
Kennedy, who was an outspoken supporter of Hancock’s runoff opponent, Chris Romer, this spring, was widely considered a rising star in Colorado Democratic circles until her defeat last year at the hands of Republican Walker Stapleton.
Kennedy served one term as treasurer from 2007-2011 and was lauded, at least by Democrats, for her conservative approach to managing state revenues amidst the recession. A nonpartisan audit released Tuesday also praised Kennedy for her work.
