Goal: Elect a Democratic majority to the Arizona Corporations Commission by voting for each of the three Democratic candidates, Anna Tovar, Bill Mundell and Shea Stanfield.
Your ballot will inform you that you can vote for three candidates. Do it! Vote for all three democratic candidates.
Electing a Democratic majority to the ACC is the only way to strengthen and increase consumer protections at the Commission. The regulated have chosen their regulators for far too long.
The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) is an organization most Arizona residents don’t think about much at all. But they should.
The ACC has regulatory authority for utility services and railroad and pipeline systems. It influences Arizona’s economy managing the financial marketplace in Arizona through registration and oversight of securities, securities dealers and salespersons, and investment advisers and their representatives.
For too long it has been a playground for Republicans and their donors – including those, like Arizona Public Service (APS), the commission is tasked with regulating. The commission has five members who are elected statewide. Currently the commission is comprised of four Republicans and one Democrat. But this year there are three seats up for election and three Democratic candidates. Do the math and you see that we can flip the Arizona Corporations Commission as well as the Arizona State Senate and House. And Elect Mark Kelly. And Joe Biden.
