Justin Olson goes solo in new ACC campaign mailer

Posted by on | August 5, 2018 | No Comments

In what appears to be a political divorce, Arizona Corporation Commissioner and candidate Justin Olson who was running as a team with Tom Forese for two open seats, now appears to be going it alone. Though their names appear jointly on campaign signs, Olson is sending a clear signal with his new mailer.

Timed to arrive with early ballots, the full color fold-over not only provides his résumé, but also includes endorsements from three AZ congressional members under the heading “Our conservative leaders agree, Justin Olson is the right choice for Corporation Commissioner.”  Forese, who first announced for state treasurer before switching to this race, has vanished.

Make no mistake, SRAZ strongly supports conservative Jim O’Connor. In a crowded field rife with liberals, Justin Olson who has sound credentials can ably fill the second seat.

Olson is a former state legislator who lost a 2016 primary challenge to Congressman Andy Biggs, who is now supporting him. This past year, he was appointed to the ACC by Gov. Ducey to fill a vacancy, and is currently running for a complete term.

The importance of this race cannot be overstated. The Corporation Commission, which regulates and sets rates for public utilities, is in dire need of ethical members to fill the two open seats. This is no place for Democrats, several of whom are in the race.

Rodney Glassman a political chameleon now purporting to be a Republican, previously ran as a Democrat for the U.S. Senate and for chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party.  Glassman is a political opportunist who has no concept of ethics.
