Former state Sen. Jim Condos is close to announcing he plans to run for secretary of state this year, he said Wednesday.
Condos, a Democrat who represented Chittenden County in the Senate and served as chairman of the South Burlington City Council, said he expects to make an announcement "one way or the other _ most likely the other _ soon."
Condos would face a primary with Montpelier lawyer Charles Merriman for the job being vacated by Democrat Deb Markowitz, who is running for governor. On the Republican side, Williston lawyer Chris Roy is running for the office.
Condos said he would take a leave of absence from his job as manager of government and community relations at Vermont Gas Systems Inc.
