Speaker Bowers and Representative Fernandez Release Joint Statement on Stringer Investigation

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Speaker Rusty Bowers (R-25) and House Democratic Leader Charlene Fernandez (D-4) today released the following statement regarding the investigation of David Stringer:

“While we disagree on matters of policy every day, each of us regards our colleagues as friends and family. The shock and horror we felt when we learned the details in this report are indescribable, not just as elected officials but as parents. This is not about politics, it's about the safety and security of children. It will not be easy, but for the sake of our state, for children, and for this institution that we love, we must resolve to move forward from this. The public must know that we hold each other to the highest standards of character, and that they are safe and protected in the Arizona House of Representatives.”

Speaker Bowers and Representative Fernandez will hold a media availability today at 4:00 p.m. in House Hearing Room 1 to respond to documents released by the House Ethics Committee.
