Secretary Bennett focus of National Lieutenant Governor Association campaign
PHOENIX - The work and accomplishments of Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett are featured this week by the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA). Secretary Bennett is the focus of “Seconds in Command Impact States,” a year-long campaign to highlight the vital duties of the nation’s seconds-in-command, in addition to their role in gubernatorial succession.
“Secretary Bennett impacts the state of Arizona in positive ways through his work in electronically allowing voters to sign candidate nominating petitions and to contribute to clean election candidates,” said NLGA Executive Director Julia Hurst. “He is an excellent example of the work seconds-in-command do.”
“I am honored to be able to share the accomplishments of my office in a national forum such as the NLGA,” said Secretary Bennett. “The sharing of best practices among the states and territories benefit all citizens and the governments that serve them.”
The NLGA is the professional association for elected officials first in line of succession to the governors in the 50 states and five U.S. territories. In three states, including Arizona, and one territory, this official is the secretary of state. In 45 states and four territories, this official holds the title lieutenant governor. In two states, the senate president is first in line of succession.
