Goldwater Institute Named "Leader of the Year" in Policy Development; Too Bad it Can't Run For Office
The Goldwater Institute, the Phoenix based government watchdog named after conservative crusader, and former Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater, was named this year's leader in policy development by The Arizona Capitol Times Monday.
"The Goldwater Institute works hard to conduct research and develop solutions to strengthen the economy, bring transparency to government, and to protect the constitutional rights of all Arizonans," says Darcy Olsen, president and CEO of the Goldwater Institute."To be recognized for developing policy that positively impacts the state is a great honor for our staff and supporters."
The Goldwater Institute, and 14 other "leaders of the year," will be honored on September 29th at the Wyndham Hotel in downtown Phoenix.
