Three cabinet secretaries leaving

Department of Education Secretary Veronica Garcia and Children, Youth and Families Department Secretary Dorian Dodson are retiring July 1, Gov. Bill Richardson's office just announced. In addition, Energy and Natural Resources Secretary Jon Goldstein is leaving state government to pursue his master's degree.

"It is with a heavy heart that I announce the departures of Secretaries GarcĂ­a, Dodson and Goldstein. All three have been invaluable assets of my administration, working day in and day out to improve the lives of all New Mexicans,” Governor Richardson said in a statement. “While they will all be missed, these types of departures nearing the end of an administration are typical. I want to assure New Mexicans that the leadership transitions in these departments will be smooth and that there will be no impact to services."
