Secretary of State Phil Wilson announced today he will be stepping down to pursue other opportunities.  Wilson's last day in office will be July 6th.

"I have been honored to serve in this role for the people of Texas and am proud of the accomplishments we achieved during our time in office; overseeing the largest primary in Texas history, being part of bringing thousands of new jobs to Texas, and investing in our states future employers and technologies." 

Wilson has served as Chair of the Governor's Competitiveness Council and on the Border Security Council, and led the state's efforts in economic development by serving as the Governor's designee on the Texas Enterprise Fund and Emerging Technology Fund.

"I want to thank Governor Perry for the opportunity he has given me and thank my tremendous staff," Wilson added.  "I know that the success we have had will continue."

The Governor responded, "Phil has been a trusted advisor and dear friend of mine and Anita's for many years. He is a man of innovative thought and exceptional determination; attributes that have led him to success in both his professional and personal life.

"I thank Phil for his service, and wish him and his family much success and happiness in the future. He will be hard to replace."
