Regulator Bob Burns’ wife resigns water panel seat to avoid perception of ‘conflict’

BurnsBy Arizona Business Daily Reports

The Central Arizona Project delivers approximately 1.5 million acre-feet of water from the Colorado River to central and southern Arizona each year.

Gayle Burns recently submitted her resignation from the Central Arizona Water Conservation District (CAWCD) board of directors citing a growing sentiment that her position posed a possible conflict of interest for her husband, Bob, a member of Arizona Corporation Commission.

In a letter of resignation dated March 14 and addressed to CAWCD President Lisa Atkins, Gayle Burns said being a board member was feeding a notion that her husband, Arizona Corporation Commissioner Bob Burns, should not be allowed to vote on matters relating to water or energy.
