JIM HOLWAY URGES THE ARIZONA CORPORATION COMMISSION TO ORDER REGULATED UTILITIES TO REPORT ALL
CONTRIBUTIONS THAT SEEK TO INFLUENCE CORPORATION COMMISSION ELECTIONS

Jim Holway, candidate for Arizona’s Corporation Commission, delivered a letter to the ve
Commissioners today asking them to immediately order regulated utilities to report all
contributions seeking to inuence Corporation Commission elections.

“We cannot allow secret funding by utilities to threaten the independence and integrity of our
elected public utility commission,” Holway said.

Holway is also asking Arizona residents to join him by signing a companion petition at
www.NoSecretFunds.com. "Commissioners have the authority and obligation to protect the
integrity of the Commission and to serve the people of Arizona by exposing any dark money
funding from regulated utilities."

Until recently, there has been a long and sensible tradition that APS and our other regulated
monopolies stay out of Commission races. Without a disclosure rule, the Commission will be
assisting a utility to keep its Commission candidate funding anonymous.

“Rate payers and voters rely on an independent Commission. They want to know how much
involvement a utility has in trying to inuence the election of regulators. The disclosure rule, which the Commission can and should adopt, will help them nd out," Holway added.

Friends,

I am thrilled to announce an endorsement from another influential, Arizona leader – Former Governor Fife Symington. Governor Symington was a champion for small businesses and was able to ease regulatory burdens and cut red-tape to allow these business to prosper. My hope is to continue that mission by simplifying and modernizing the business filing system in the Secretary of State’s Office. I am thankful to have his support.

“It was my mission as Governor to protect Arizona small businesses. I can say without question, Michele Reagan has rightly earned the reputation as a guardian of small business. Michele has been a tireless advocate for the small business community, while also championing legislation that sought to preserve the integrity of our election processes. Her knowledge and experience with both issues make her the clear choice to be Arizona’s next Secretary of State.”
