The Colorado Secretary of State’s office is seeking candidates to fill the position of Deputy Secretary of State.
According to a press release announcing the vacancy, “The Deputy Secretary of State serves as a key advisor to Secretary of State Scott Gessler, focusing on public policy in both elections and business filings.” For the purposes of this job opening, the term “key advisor” shall mean “to do whatever Scott Gessler tells you to do without questioning whether or not it makes any sense.”
Bachelor’s Degree required, law degree preferred. In lieu of college degree, proof of Republican voter registration will suffice.
Would be nice, but not all that important.
QUALIFICATIONS AND ABILITIES
PAY AND BENEFITS
Almost certainly inadequate, but opportunities may exist to do outside legal work to make extra cash. Successful candidate will have the option to purchase an older-model Honda Civic.
HOW TO APPLY
Applicants for the position will be vetted by a search committee, which includes former U.S. Senator Hank Brown; former Secretary of State Gigi Dennis; DHR International Executive V.P. Debra Young; local attorney Jim Hackstaff and Hobbs. Calvin was not available. Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to [email protected] if they aren’t concerned about getting a response. All others should wait for the search committee to call.
Applicants will not be disqualified because of race, sex, creed or color, but you’d be a damn fool to disclose that you are gay. Candidates of all political parties are encouraged to apply, but resumes that are not from lifelong Republicans will be thrown in the trash.
