Albany --

Democratic candidate for secretary of state Gail Buckner greeted people at a recent stop at Albany's Riverfront park. She says she'll work for all citizens by creating a new toll-free hotline to give people more access to the Secretary of State's office.

She also wants to help people become business owners, create an identity theft prevention board, and set up a securities fraud board."Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in this country. A citizen who becomes a victim can expect to spend anywhere from 67-hundred dollars to 15-thousand dollars to clear their name and put their life back together," said Gail Buckner.

Six candidates will face off in the Democratic primary for Secretary of State on July 18th.
