Congratulations to The Breakdown Breakouts!


Our inaugural Breakouts are among the sharpest political minds in Arizona. They work in and outside of government, manage their own businesses and provide counsel to some of the most important entities in the state.

 They routinely take on complex subjects and tackle the most challenging issues. They have established their credentials through hard work, persistence and that independent spirit that defines the American southwest. And they have proven that age, truly, is no barrier to success.

 Please join us in celebrating their accomplishments on November 27.

 Editor’s note: The Arizona Capitol Times newsroom played no role in the selection process.
