From Campaign video
By Lacey Latch | Arizona Republic
Kris Mayes, an attorney and professor who served for seven years on the Arizona Corporation Commission, announced Wednesday that she is running for state attorney general as a Democrat.
Mayes, a Prescott native, is known for consumer advocacy work, particularly involving climate change and energy efficiency. Mayes serves as the director of Arizona State University’s Energy Policy Innovation Council and teaches energy law at the school’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, from which she earned her own juris doctorate in 2003.
While Mayes is keeping quiet about her policy initiatives until a formal campaign announcement in the fall, she cites the ongoing election audit in Maricopa County as one of the key factors in her decision to enter the race.
