Welcome to The Arizona Guardian

Finally something new and interesting under the sun.

Meet The Arizona Guardian, an online news service created by several former journalists who know their way around the capital and can give some real insight to what is going on. Basically, in a lot of ways, they are now doing what PolitickerAZ wanted to do, but with a few people who actually have experience and understand the Arizona landscape a bit.

Congratulations to them on filling a niche that is much needed in covering the Capitol in a meaningful way without having to pay an arm and a leg for The Capitol Times or being stuck solely with Howie Fischer. They have already covered Brewer's transition in much greater detail than any other Arizona media outlet and they have only been at it for a couple of weeks.

We look forward to their continued coverage, including interesting newsbreaking items such as Brewer setting the date to name her replacement, which doesn't appear anywhere else.

The fifth owner of the company, the silent partner in charge of "non-editorial operations" is none other than Bob Grossfeld who is known as a demcratic pollster and strategist, UFCW spokesperson, and co-owner of the controversial Petition Partners which is well known for their failure to qualify the TIME and State Trust initiatives.

Hopefully, Grossfeld will stick to the "non-editorial operations."
