Special Interest spends nearly $700K to re-elect Bob Burns

SIspends
NEARLY THREE QUARTERS OF A MILLION DOLLARS SPENT
AND THEY AREN’T DONE YET!

In campaign finance reports submitted today, it’s reported that Save Our AZ Solar spent $667,082.04 with the hopes of getting Bob Burns re-elected to the Corporation Commission. When you dive a little deeper into the numbers you’ll see that Save Our AZ Solar received $700,000 from SolarCity. And ALL of this spending took place over a 16 day period – August 2 – August 18.  You can review the finance report here.

Here’s a quick breakdown:

Mailing services (mail pieces) – $436,097.16
Digital ads – $225,000
Robocalls – $5,984.88

In Burn’s campaign rhetoric he speaks often about “special interests” trying to stack the deck at the Corporation Commission.

This infusion of cash from SolarCity in support of Burns is starting to make us believers.

  1. Burns is bad for Arizona. The solar industry wants him to win the GOP primary, so he can run with 2 Dems in the general election. If they win, they will create a pro solar majority on the AZ Corporation Commission. If this happens, they will jack energy utility rates sky high to make the majority of home owners subsidize the solar panels of the 1 to 4%. No rate payer should be asked to subsidize another rate payer. Please do not vote for Burns. Please vote for the Tobin/ Gray/ Melvin team. Please check out http://www.az-acc.com.
