 Speaker:  Senator Karen Fann, who has been an Arizona state senator since 2017, was chosen to be the next Senate president. Fann, who prior served in the state House of Representatives, wants to get rid of the “us-versus-them” attitude that has dominated politics lately.
Karen Fann is the second female Senate President in the history of Arizona. Senator Fann was first elected in November of 2016 to represent Legislative District 1, which covers 8,000 square smiles throughout Yavapai County and portions of Maricopa County. She previously served this district from 2011 to 2016 as a State Representative. Karen moved to Prescott at the age of four and has been a life-long Republican.  Karen is the owner and CEO of a highway construction company specializing in the installation of guardrail and signs throughout the State of Arizona, which recently celebrated its 33rd business anniversary. She continued to represent her community by serving as a precinct committeeman and is a member of the Rotary International and Elks.
Senator Fann currently serves as the Vice-Chair of both the Finance Committee and the Transportation and Technology Committee and as a member of the Natural Resources, Energy and Water Committee.  In 114,000 miles only 18.2% are private property with taxes being paid by the taxpayers.  There is 12.6% State Trust Land, 21.6% Tribal and 46% Federal Land.
The economy is so good this year we are 11.9 billion $ ahead.  The entire state budget is 30+ billion. 6.229 billion goes to education, the rest is medicare, prisons, and the department of public safety.  AZ has 1 billion in a rainy day fund.  We also paid off the debt leftover after the recession.  Teachers got their raises.  130 million was intended to I17 to put in 2 traverse lanes and the Federal govt put in 92 million.15 million was put into  homelessness.  In Phoenix there is a senior or silver crisis because many seniors are not prepared for the high rate of rents and cost of living.

Good Morning Sunupians, 


A lot of really good community service projects on the horizon, please be sure to get involved the best you can with as many as you can. The more warm bodies we can generate the easier the projects will be. Hope you all had a great labor day weekend. I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.
We all do better when we work together. Our differences do matter, but our common humanity matters more. Bill Clinton
