If you’re against Prop. 127, we’re your clear choice for Arizona Corporation Commission
In the race for corporation commissioner, voters have a clear choice.
Two Republican nominees who work in the business community and support policies to keep your rates as low as possible, while ensuring safe and reliable public services and ethical conduct by commissioners. Or two liberal Democrats who support mandates that will dramatically increase your utility rates.
As your Republican nominees, we ask for your vote to ensure that commonsense policies prevail at the Corporation Commission.
A key difference between us and our Democrat counterparts is our opposition to the costly mandates included in Proposition 127.
We support empowering Arizonans to choose to install solar energy generation, energy storage and any other method of meeting their energy demands. We also support requiring utilities to invest in the most cost-effective energy production available to keep rates as a low as possible for all ratepayers….
The Tucson Metro Chamber is YOUR advocate when it comes to ensuring we have a continually improving business climate in Southern Arizona. We champion issues that impact businesses of all sizes. Our 2018-2019 core policy focus areas include: infrastructure and the ability to build and fund necessary assets; workforce development to improve and grow our current and future workers; and, creating a business climate that is sustainable and promotes a prosperous community. We strongly believe in electing officials that are collaborative partners who support overall business advocacy needs. In an effort to elect officials who will help achieve those organization policy goals, the Tucson Metro Chamber is endorsing the following candidates:
Doug Ducey (R)
Kimberly Yee (R)
Arizona Corporation Commission:
Justin Olson (R)
The Chamber extended interview invitations to all candidates that were on the August primary ballot, holding over fifty 20-minute interviews. A special thanks to our members who serve on the Candidate Evaluation Committee for the tremendous time commitment and effort they put into the interview process. The Candidate Evaluation Committee has even representation from registered Democrats, Republicans, and Independents — just like our Chamber community.
We hope that you will give strong consideration to the candidates when you and your employees cast their ballots. As always, should you have any questions, please give us a call at (520) 792-1212.
“I am pleased to endorse Justin Olson for the Arizona Corporation Commission. Since his appointment last year, he has served our state with distinction. Justin knows the policies of the commission, and he is dedicated to ensuring that all Arizonans receive the best possible service. We need conservative public servants like Justin Olson, and I look forward to his work over the next four years. I hope you will join me in voting for Justin Olson with one of your two votes for Arizona Corporation Commissioner.”
