Michael Miller AZ Republic oped:
No reform, including Clean Elections, will turn every election into a nail-biter. To expect otherwise is short-sighted when the voter composition of many districts effectively assures the outcome before polls ever open.
But considering the totality of the available evidence, it is clear that Arizona’s elections are actually more competitive, feature closer interaction between candidates and voters, and see higher voter participation than they did before. Arizonans certainly have every right to decide whether these results are worthy of their tax dollars, but they should make that decision with all available evidence presented.
Whether by ignorance or intent, Wachob’s column falls far short of this standard.
