“I’m running for Colorado State Treasurer because Colorado families and taxpayers deserve a champion for transparency and accountability.”

Meet Lang Sias

Lang Sias is a former Navy and Air National Guard fighter pilot, attorney and Colorado State Representative.

As a Navy FA-18 pilot, Lang is a veteran of numerous overseas deployments, including combat missions in Operation Desert Storm. He also served as an Instructor at the Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN), where he led the training program and edited the Navy’s premier aviation tactics journal.

Transitioning to the Air National Guard, Lang flew F16’s and commanded a unit of ground-based forward air controllers in Kirkuk and Hawija, Iraq during the Second Gulf War. He retired as a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard after twenty-seven years of active duty and reserve service.

Raised in a small family manufacturing business, Lang feels a gut-level loyalty to small businesses and the families they support. His passion for entrepreneurship continued as an attorney at the Colorado offices of Cooley LLP, a leading national firm, where he worked with numerous emerging technology companies.

As a Colorado State Representative from 2015-2019, Lang represented House District 27 in Jefferson County. The ranking member on the business committee, Lang also served on the education, public health and health exchange oversight committees, and was a member of the legislative tax simplification task force and the JeffCo school safety task force. Over 85% of the bills Lang sponsored were bipartisan. He focused on solving problems in the areas of education, health care and small business, and on government transparency and accountability. He played major roles in passing legislation expanding public school choice, increasing healthcare transparency and reforming the public pension system to benefit retirees and taxpayers. In 2018, Lang was selected as the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor.

Lang currently serves on the legislative subcommittee that oversees Colorado’s state pension fund. He works as an international 777 pilot for FedEx.

Lang is a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, the London School of Economics and Vassar College. He and his wife Rene live in Arvada, with their three children, who attend JeffCo public schools.

Lang’s Priorities as Colorado State Treasurer

Protect Taxpayers.

Fight Inflation

Lang believes that State and Federal policies are stoking inflation and making Colorado increasingly unaffordable. Spending is at unprecedented levels, and we are not paying enough attention to what we are getting for our money.

Responsible Stewardship of Colorado’s Investments

Working collaboratively with the professional staff in the Treasurer’s office, Lang will protect taxpayer funds by adhering to the mandated policy of making investments that are safe, liquid, and generate yield that equals or exceeds appropriate benchmarks.

PERA

As a Board member of our Colorado’s pension fund (PERA), Lang will continue to fight to ensure that retiree pensions are secure and that the burdens on school districts and taxpayers are reasonable.

Support Small Business.

Having grown up with a small manufacturing business in the basement, and having helped many entrepreneurs, Lang understands at a gut-level the struggles of the small business community. He knows that when government actions increase business costs for businesses, those costs will be passed along to consumers.

Educate Our Children.

Lang has kids in Colorado’s public schools right now, so he understands how important it is to listen to parents and spend wisely to get children back on track after COVID. Lang fought hard in the legislature to pass bipartisan legislation expanding funding for public school choice, including for our most disadvantaged children, and he will continue to advocate for robust public school choice for all Colorado families.
