The president of the group that led efforts to recall a state senator in Pueblo is running for clerk and recorder.  KRCC’s Eliza Densmore reports.

Victor Head is currently the president of Pueblo Freedom and Rights which recently led a campaign to recall Democratic state senator Angela Giron. 

The clerk and recorder oversees vehicle registration, marriage licenses, and county elections. Head says he wants to improve training for election judges and increase citizen oversight during the process. 

The current Pueblo County Clerk and Recorder is Gilbert “Bo” Ortiz. His term ends early next year.

Giron was one of two Democratic state lawmakers recalled last year for supporting gun legislation.
