The seven men running for election to the Arizona Corporation Commission debated Wednesday whether it is appropriate for utilities to make secret donations to help elect the people who set their rates.
The candidates for the Arizona Corporation Commission also addressed a variety of other questions at a forum hosted by the Arizona Investment Council at Rio Salado College.
The five commissioners oversee electric, gas and water utilities, as well as securities and railroad crossings in Arizona. Commissioners are elected to four-year terms at the office, and this year three people will be elected.
