By Jeremy Duda | Arizona Capitol Times

Thomas Collins, the attorney who has provided legal advice to the Citizens Clean Elections Commission for the past two and a half years, will take over the agency as its new executive director.

CCEThe commission offered Collins the job on July 15, and Collins accepted several days later. He will begin the job on Aug. 5.
