The word on the street is that Bill Mundell is telling folks he’s being encouraged by (unnamed) supporters to throw his hat in the 2016 ring for a spot on the Arizona Corporation Commission. It’s a post he previously held, after being appointed to the position by Republican Gov. Jane Hull in 1999 to fill a vacancy.
Mundell was also appointed as Registrar of Contractors by former Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican.
Nothing strange there. Mundell, a Republican lawyer who was elected to the state legislature and served from 1987 to 1992 would be a likely go-to guy for these cushy state slots.
For six years back in the 1980’s he was a Chandler city court judge, another job to which he was appointed.
The oddity is that Bill Mundell is now a newly minted Democrat. All we can figure is that he’s got a hankering to vote for Hillary.
