Doing the people’s work at the State Capitol
PHOENIX — Less than 30 words described Republican State Sen. Gail Griffin’s view of what encapsulates good government and her responsibilities as an elected official.
The wording of the Second Section of Article 2 of the Arizona Constitution succinctly describes the powers of the state government and of the legislators, said Griffin, who is the Senate President pro tem.
Holding up a copy of the section’s text which reads: “All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights,” she said any action by the state government, especially legislators, which violates those words are constitutionally not allowed.
