112 Days Until Election Day

Council of State

Ronnie Chatterji for NC Treasurer

“The State Treasurer is effectively the chief economic and financial officer for our state. S/he has a wide-ranging set of responsibilities and unusual authority for a state government official.  My background as an economist, business school professor and adviser to President Obama makes me uniquely qualified to do this job.  I have spent my career using reliable data and sound judgment to advance economic policy that benefits everyone.” Ronnie Chatterji

From Indy Candidate Questionnaire

What are the three biggest challenges facing the Treasurer’s office? If elected, how would you propose to address these challenges?

The Treasurer of North Carolina has tremendous, untapped potential to help North Carolina’s families. I will use the direct authority of my office as well as my platform to implement and advocate for effective public policies.

  1. Too few North Carolinians have access to high-quality and affordable health care. I will advocate for the expansion of health care in North Carolina and ensure that the state health plan (managed by the Treasurer) refocuses on affordability and quality of care for our 720,000 state employees. Specifically, I will actively support the expansion of Medicaid across North Carolina. Expanding Medicaid will provide a foundation to reform the State Health Plan. I will ensure that the State Health Plan gets smarter about how it pays for health care. The goal should be to align the billions we pay each year in health care costs with healthy outcomes for North Carolinians.
  2. We must help more of our fellow citizens save for retirement.  As Treasurer, one of my legislative priorities will be the creation of individual retirement accounts for every North Carolinian. These accounts will be managed by the Treasurer’s office and all North Carolina employers who do not currently offer a plan will be automatically enrolled. Employees can opt-out at any time and the Treasurer’s office can leverage our expertise and scale to manage the accounts at low cost. We will incorporate lessons from other states that have been piloting these programs to ensure we offer the best possible product to North Carolinians.
  3. I will modernize and improve the North Carolina Retirement Systems, returning it to world-class standards of fiscal responsibility and risk management. I will carefully review the portfolio and hire the right talent to ensure that we are investing our funds efficiently, with prudence, and with an appreciation for the economic implications of diversity and environmental sustainability.

The Marketing Committee has selected a design that we feel captures who we are and what we value.

Please consider donating to this fund, as we believe we have a solid plan to make your dollars reach the most voters and potential voters possible. We’ve been too quiet it’s time to make some noise!

Give Your Time at Election Time.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions. More Information HERE
