Fun With Campaign Signs 2014: Chapter 1

Could someone explain to me how President Obama and the Arizona Corporation Commission* intersect?

From the ACC's website:

In most states, the Commission is known as the Public Service Commission or the Public Utility Commission. Our Commission, however, has responsibilities that go beyond traditional public utilities regulation. These additional roles include facilitating the incorporation of businesses and organizations, securities regulation and railroad/pipeline safety.

* - Check out the (relatively) very small print at the bottom of the sign.  Forese and Little are running for seats on the ACC.  Though based on the priorities indicated by their signs, working *for* the people of Arizona is not their top priority.

It may not make headlines but shutting down one of the Navajo Generating Station coal generator units would be one intersection.

Hmmm, don't think that's one of the positions they've taken, is it, Thane? (Little's criticized EPA's involvement, but didn't find anything more specific.)

BTW, their website not only doesn't mention how they'd "fight Obama", but it doesn't even MENTION the President (or, the Administration, or federal issues).

Forese and Little did not put up those signs. They were put up by an IE group. I noticed that just before I passed out on Sunday pounding in my signs.

Rep. Kavanagh -

Having an IE group put up the signs doesn't speak well of them either -

The folks who are paying for their campaigns don't expect (or, dare I say it?) or want Forese and Little to work for the interests of Arizonans (and before anyone accuses me of taking sides in a Republican primary, Mason and Parker probably won't work for Arizona if they win the seats).

As far as sign pounding is concerned, you have my sympathies - I've helped a couple of candidates with their signs, but only at night.

And even at night, it still kicks everyone's butt. We last a few hours before having to pack it in.

Ahhh...the joys of being politically active in AZ in the summer.
