From Toulouse Oliver’s letter to the Republican Martinez:
“I believe that we are all best-served by a Secretary of State who is fair, impartial, and concerned with upholding the integrity of the office. I can assure you that, should I be appointed to the office, those ideals will be at the very heart of my daily work. I will make the people of New Mexico proud of the work the Secretary of State’s office is doing, and make it my daily goal to work to ensure their trust and confidence.
“I have the experience, expertise and desire to bring transparent, accountable, and – most importantly – fair leadership to the Secretary of State’s office. I have made those principles the bedrock of my work as Bernalillo County Clerk, and they would be the basis of my efforts in the Secretary of State’s office.”
A staffer within the Office of the Secretary of State is filling in through 2016. An election to replace her will be held in November 2016.
