Five county clerks. Eleven general elections. Twenty-one years of efficient and excellent service.
And one big retirement party for Liz Olson, the elections manager of the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office, who is as respected across the state as she is in El Paso County.
“For more than two decades Liz Olson has set the standard for election officials,” said Secretary of State Wayne Williams.
The El Paso County Board of Commissioners honored Olson last week with a proclamation and plenty of praise.
“I’ve worked really hard. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished,” Olson said at the end of the ceremony. “I very often put my work before my personal life and I don’t have any regrets. I felt like that’s what the job required. But I do want to tell my family how much I appreciate their support.”
