The Fountain Hills Times reports that Governor Brewer (lame duck); LD23 Representatives John Kavanagh (candidate for state senate) and Michelle Ugenti (incumbent candidate for state house); and Senator (candidate for secretary of state) Michele Reagan (all “Republicans”) supported yet another preemption of local government control…in order to promote the use of fireworks. In the desert. During wildfire season.
Can the fireworks industry possibly make large enough campaign contributions to influence them? Or has the price of an elected representative really plummeted lately? Of course, there is the possibility that they really ARE that dumb.
