A potential clean-energy initiative might energize the ballot box for Arizonans this November
By Ray Stern | Phoenix New Times
As rumors of a potential clean-energy initiative swirl, the head of the campaign firm behind the successful minimum-wage election in 2016 said he’s indeed working on a planned measure for this November.
For now, Scheel’s keeping the public in the dark on the energy plan’s details. The potential campaign has made no formal announcement. Scheel wouldn’t say what, precisely, the initiative would cover or who’s backing it.
Phoenix New Times received tips that a possible energy initiative was on the works and made a few inquiries among people who might know such things. New Times contacted Democratic organizer Tom Reade, who helped in 2016 with the planned Yes on AZ Solar initiative. Reade said Javelin was handling PR for the effort.
