    “What the heck goes on in the
    AZ Legislature?”
    Tuesday May 15th, 2018
     Presentation by:
    Kirsten Engel
    Kirsten Engel is a member of the AZ House of Representatives for Legislative District 10. First elected in 2016 and now running for re-election, Kirsten was compelled to run for public office by the crisis in public education funding and what she saw as the state’s failure to adequately protect Arizona’s desert environment and invest in clean renewable energy. Kirsten’s first term as a legislator has been an eye-opening experience into the inner workings of our system of state government. Kirsten’s career began as an environmental lawyer working for the EPA and the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund. She is currently a professor of law at the University of Arizona where she co-directs the Environmental Law Program.

    LD 10 House Rep. Kirsten Engel
    PLUS Special Guest:
    Tee Lambert
    Tee Lambert has been a public school advocate for the past 25 years and is currently serving her fourth term as a governing board member for Washington Elementary School District, in Phoenix. She started in her advocacy for public schools when her children started school, by participating on school councils and district overrides and bond committees. Then Tee and five other parents developed a grassroots group, Support Our Schools-AZ, and has spent the past 20 years advocating at the legislature for adequate funding for schools and in the community to increase voter participation.
