Does the name Maria Baier ring a bell?
The Sonoran Institute Board of Directors has announced Baier’s appointment as the group’s new chief executive officer. She takes the reins as CEO of the broken-world repairers effective December 3, 2012.
Baier has served as Arizona State Land Commissioner since 2009. Prior to that she was a short-term Phoenix City Councilwoman. Most notable, however was her inclusion on the notorious list of RINOs who signed on as Republicans for Janet — Arizona’s liberal former governor, now Obama’s chieftain of Homeland Insecurity.
Baier was personally hand picked and endorsed for the District 3 city council post by liberal former Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. As the sister of then-Fire Chief Bob Khan, she was well positioned to vote for pay increases for her own brother and his union.
The Sonoran Institute’s website says it is dedicated to “inspiring and enabling community decisions and public policies that respect the land and people of western North America.” Climate Change is a front burner issue.
You might think a group this far up Al Gore’s alley would be looking for someone of the same political persuasion, rather than a Republican who went to the trouble to become a GOP Precinct Committeeman.
Well, whaddya know? It looks as though they did.
