AZ State Senator Al Melvin Runs for Governor

Arizona Edition - July 28th is the last day to register to vote in primary elections taking place August 26th.  This year, republicans have a lot of choices in the primary.  In most races they outnumber Democrats 2 and even 3 to one. For the state’s highest office there are nine candidates listed on the Arizona Secretary of State’s site for the Republican nomination.

Last week we heard from former Go-Daddy executive Christine Jones.  This week, KAWC’s Lou Gum sits down with state Senator Al Melvin…(originally aired 04/02/14).

This piece was featured in the April 2nd Arizona Edition.  Other pieces featured in the show can be found below in the related content section.

Lou grew up in Tucson and has a long family history in the state of Arizona. He began his public radio career in 1988 at KNAU in Flagstaff as a classical music DJ and has been hooked on public radio since, transitioning to news after trying his hand at several other careers in publishing and commercial broadcasting. Lou has a degree in American Studies from Arizona State University and was KAWC's Morning Edition host for two and half years before becoming News and Operations Director.
