Democrat Tovar positioned to win 1 of 3 Corp Comm seats.

 Arizona Mirror

Democrats appear poised to win one of the three contested seats for the Arizona Corporation Commission, as Tolleson Mayor Anna Tovar leads the field of six candidates to serve on the panel that regulates utilities, among other things.

Tovar is trailed by Republican incumbent Lea Marquez Peterson and Jim O’Connor. Tovar leads Marquez Peterson by about 54,000 votes. O’Connor, who is in third, is beating fellow Republican Eric Sloan by almost 45,000 votes. Tovar’s lead over Sloan is more than 110,000 votes.

The Corporation Commission is a five-member board that regulates utilities, securities and railroads.

Tovar is part of a slate of three Democrats who ran as the “Solar Team 2020,” promising to put the state on a path towards increased use of solar energy and other sustainable energy sources. The other Democratic candidates, former Commissioner William Mundell and Cave Creek Town council member Shea Stanfield, are in fifth- and sixth place. Mundell is about 57,000 votes behind O’Connor.
