Injury, death in family led to missed votes

Recently, the Arizona Capitol Times ran an article stating that I was absent for a number of votes during the past legislative session.

I wanted to let your readers know that, as their elected representative, I take my responsibility as a legislator very seriously and have made my attendance at the state Capitol for legislative meetings and votes my first priority.

Unfortunately, this year, several votes coincided on days when I had to be absent from the Legislature due to a personal injury that resulted in surgery and also a death in the family. I regret that I was not present to vote on behalf of my legislative district on those days, but I do want to assure my constituents that I did not miss any votes on the many budget bills that were considered.

I look forward to working hard during this coming session to help make Arizona a stronger place for all of us.

Sincerely,
Rep. Nancy Young Wright, a Democrat from Oro Valley

In the end, Arizona must speak with one voice (access required)

Coming to agreement on how best to marshal the state’s water resources and to create sustainability for future Arizonans is among the toughest challenges that leaders in our region can take on. Arizona has chosen to act now. We are opting to improve on the work of previous generations of state leaders to ensure that the word “crisis” remains banished from Arizona’s water lexicon.
