Heinz Resigns as House Minority Whip

Posted By on Mon, Mar 21, 2011 at 4:14 PM

Tucson Rep. Matt Heinz is stepping down from his position as minority whip in the Arizona House of Representatives. The resignation letter:

In order to devote more of my time to the legislative process, I regret that it has become necessary for me to resign my leadership position effective immediately.

Unconstrained, I will continue to focus my efforts on developing the best, most effective policy solutions to address the ongoing economic recovery, essential public health programs, education funding at all levels, and public safety priorities including border crime enforcement with a long-term goal of balancing the budget in a sustainable, fiscally responsible manner.

It has been an honor to serve the Democratic caucus as Whip during this legislative session. I look forward to working closely with you, my fellow Democrats, our Republican colleagues and the Governor on the many difficult issues facing the people of Arizona.
