Vermont Auditor Tom Salmon

Vermont State Auditor Tom Salmon announced in a Facebook post Thursday night that he will not seek re-election to that office.

From Salmon’s Facebook page:

I have enjoyed my service to the state but will not seek re-election as state auditor. It has been an honor to serve with such a talented team at the SAO (State Auditor’s Office). Thank you all.

In a follow up comment, Salmon added the following:

When I was in Iraq, the other service members would say, “Politicians…they all lie” and I would laugh..Its getting harder to laugh as I watch how politicians act and how special interests and money obstruct real and necessary reform

Salmon has previously said he’s weighing a challenge to independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders whose is up for re-election in 2012.
