In early September of 2011 two Republican activists attempted to have Moellman removed from the ballot by filing a lawsuit that claimed nearly half of his nominating signatures were flawed or fictitious. Under state law, most third-party candidates need 5,000 valid signatures to be placed on the ballot, while Republicans and Democrats are only required to have two signatures. The suit was dropped on September 12.
Moellman outlined his platform on his 2011 campaign website:
- 1. Update: Bring operations of the office up to date.
- "Find any inefficiencies due to outdated practices, and remedy them."
- 2. Automate: Streamline repetitive activities
- "Anything that is done repeatedly can be made more efficient. In his professional career, Ken has streamlined and automated everyday tasks for companies large and small. This leads to long-term cost-savings."
- 3. Eliminate: Develop and present a transition plan
- "For years, there has been talk of eliminating the office and transitioning the remaining roles of the Treasurer to other offices. Ken will develop a transition plan to move the functions of the office to other divisions of government."
- "Attrition not layoffs - Any employees close to retirement will ride through the term, and we'll help the rest relocate within state government."
