Our Opinion: Mayes will be good ACC chief

Kris Mayes

Kris Mayes

With three new members now serving on the five-member Arizona Corporation Commission – arguably the most important and powerful agency in the state – we’re delighted that Kris Mayes has been elected chairwoman.

We long have been impressed with Mayes’ knowledge, industriousness and dedication to energy, utilities and transportation issues in our state.

We also appreciate her new plans to promote water conservation, energy efficiency and use of renewable energy.

Gov. Janet Napolitano appointed Republican Mayes to the ACC in 2003, and she won election in 2004 and 2006.

Her fellow Republican, continuing Commissioner Gary Pierce, also will lend veteran insights to the panel.

We congratulate new Commissioners Bob Stump, Paul Newman and Sandra Kennedy and wish them well.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
