Watch the first of our Discussion 4 Democracy series as we virtually sit down with Democratic candidates running for the Corporation Commission.

Host Larry Bodine, President of Democrats of Greater Tucson, interviewed Lauren Kuby. She is a two-term council member, former vice mayor of Tempe, and a senior sustainability scientist at Arizona State University. Lauren is an advocate for fair, equitable worker protections as well as social, economic, and environmental justice. She led Tempe’s Dark Money ballot initiative and created the Tempe Sustainability Commission.

What is the Corporation Commission?
The Arizona Corporation Commission, established in Article 15 of the Arizona Constitution, is the office in charge of regulating utilities, securities, and railroad and pipeline safety. It is the Commission’s responsibility to provide safe, reliable, and affordable utilities for the public. Decisions made by the Corporation Commission affect every Arizonan, every single day.
These forums give Democrats running for statewide and federal office the chance to answer questions based on issues that matter most to their constituents here in Pima County.
