Posted on 01. Jun, 2013 by Stephan Helgesen in Politics

Albuquerque – Sen. Keller shared with supporters his intentions to run for the State Auditor position in 2014.

“Today I am excited to announce I’m all in for Auditor 2014!  The State Auditor office is the best fit for how I can continue to serve New Mexico. Being our next Auditor offers the platform to champion government reform ideas I’ve worked on in the legislature, on a year-round, statewide basis.  I plan to attack fraud, waste and abuse; and also to evaluate effectiveness and cost benefits to improve state-funded programs including: education, healthcare, water and economic development policies.”

Tim Keller serves as the Majority Whip in the State Senate and is in his second term.  During his legislative career Keller has run over 100 hundred pieces of legislation and passed 30 measures.  Keller’s vision for expanding the State Auditor’s office into policy evaluation builds on his legislation accomplishments.  In the legislature Keller’s primary focus has been on government reform and tax and economic development policy.    Examples passed legislation include:

·         Restructuring and adding qualifications to the Public Regulatory Commission

·         Sweeping State Investment Council (SIC) governance restructuring

·         Requiring of the transparency and effectiveness of NM’s $1B in tax incentives

·         Expanding the In State Business Preference creating 5,000 local jobs annually

·         Rebranding Albuquerque’s “War Zone,” the “International District”

·         Enacting the state’s first Home Owners Association Act

·         Establishing the net 40% solar tax credit

Tim was born and raised in New Mexico and is an Eagle Scout.  Following graduation from St. Pius X High School, he attended the University of Notre Dame, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree studying in Finance.  He then went on to earn an MBA with honors from the Harvard Business School.
