Earlier today, I talked with Sen. Frank Antenori, who wanted to let me know that he didn’t have anything to do with an amendment to HB 2650 that would have stripped county workers outside of Maricopa County of civil-service protections if they were new hires or accepted a promotion.
I reported in this week’s feature that Antenori had been behind the amendment to the bill, which was vetoed by Gov. Jan Brewer.
“I did not write that write that amendment, I did not push that bill, I had nothing to do with it,” Antenori says. “That was all Judy Burges and David Gowan.”
My apologies to Frank.
