(Mesa, AZ) – Alan Heywood announced that he is heading up an effort to draft current Secretary of State Ken Bennett to run for the office of Arizona Corporation Commissioner. Heywood stated: “Ken Bennett is one of the most effective leaders in the history of Arizona. He had a stellar career in the legislature and was an excellent Senate President. Bennett also answered the call from Governor Brewer to fill the vacancy as Secretary of State when she was appointed Governor. Bennett then ran for a second term as Secretary of State, and was elected by an overwhelming number of Arizona voters.” Heywood went on to say, “Ken has been considering a run for Governor and there is no question that he would make a fine Governor. However, the Corporation Commission is critically important to the people of Arizona. Commissioners set the price we pay for gas, water, and electricity, and they determine what forms of energy generation will be used.”
“There are many significant decisions that must be made over the next several years concerning energy policy in Arizona. We must elect highly qualified individuals that have extraordinary abilities to make decisions on very difficult and complex energy issues. Ken Bennett is one of the few in our state that has the background, experience, knowledge and ability to serve in this capacity. It is hard to imagine that there is a more important office to the people of Arizona during the next several years than that of Corporation Commissioner.”
A webpage has been set up where individuals and/or organizations can register their support to draft Ken Bennett to run for the Arizona Corporation Commission. It is critical that we let Ken know that he has strong and deep support for his candidacy for this important office. It is vital that supporters sign up as soon as possible.
Go to: DraftKenBennettForACC.com and tell Secretary Ken Bennett that we need and support him in a run for the Arizona Corporation Commission.
