Cary Kennedy '90 has been elected Colorado's state treasurer, becoming the first Democrat to hold the office since 1986.

She had worked in Colorado's state planning and budgeting office under former Governor Roy Romer from 1995 to 1998, and as a fiscal analyst for the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing in 1998 and 1999.

In 1999-2000, Kennedy led a bi-partisan coalition to increase funding for Colorado's public schools, called Amendment 23, which was approved by voters in 2000. From 2000-2002, she worked for Educare Colorado (now Qualistar) to bring increased federal funding into Colorado to support early education and school readiness. Kennedy later joined the Colorado Children's Campaign, working on a statewide initiative to increase the tax on tobacco products in order to expand health insurance for low-income children and to fund cancer research. In 2004-2005, Kennedy was policy director for House Speaker Andrew Romanoff.

An English major at St. Lawrence, Kennedy participated in an internship with the University communications office while an undergraduate and is a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. She earned a master's degree in public administration from Columbia University in 1993 and a law degree from the University of Denver College of Law in 1995.
