Truth Test: Walker Stapleton attendance ad is tardy on context

Never since your days in grade school has attendance been such a focal point as it is with the 2018 elections.
First, we had a political ad challenging Democratic Congressional candidate Jason Crow for his attendance at Colorado Board of Veterans Affairs meetings, now we have one focusing on Republican Gubernatorial candidate Walker Stapleton’s attendance at PERA board meetings.
The ad is paid for by Good Jobs Colorado, which lists its purpose “to oppose Republican candidates for governor and support Democratic candidates for governor.” In other words, it’s a committee that supports Jared Polis for governor.
CLAIM: “Precarious. Critical. As Colorado’s pension system barreled toward a funding crisis, where was our state treasurer?”
