Sandra Kennedy Thanks Voters for Returning Her to the Corporation Commission
After reviewing the ballot count update, Sandra Kennedy is pleased to claim victory in her campaign to return to the Arizona Corporation Commission, noting that she received the most votes in a four-way race.
“No matter what their party affiliation, voters want a commissioner who will be a voice for them on the Commission, someone who will stand up to the utility monopolies,” said Sandra Kennedy. “I thank Republican, Independent and Democratic voters for supporting my campaign to stop the CORRUPTION at the Commission, to prevent unjustified rate increases, and to make Arizona the Solar Capital of the World.” She added.
