Al Melvin Considering a Run for Governor

Posted By on Mon, Apr 22, 2013 at 1:30 PM

The Capn in Action

While Cap'n Al Melvin hasn't exactly been a friend of the Weekly in the past, I personally could not be more excited by his move to form an exploratory committee to run for governor.

First of all, we would have an answer to the question "After Brewer, it couldn't really get worse, could it?"

Secondly, while Melvin would probably find a way to appoint his old buddy Russell Pearce to a state office and Arizona as we know it would likely collapse if he managed to win, as an alt-weekly editor, there'd be an endless source of editorial material. Then again, I'd probably end up living next to a nuclear waste dump and AHCCCS and public schools would be things of the past, but hey, think of all the movies that would be filmed here!

Cap'n Melvin, as a Republican voter, you have my full support.
