Arizona Award


I reported earlier that Utah placed 7th in the Digital State Survey.  Arizona placed 1st and so Gov. Jane Hull came to Tucson to accept the award as the final event in the conference.  This picture shows Kent Lassman from the Progress and Freedom Foundation, Cathy Martin from HP (sponsored the award this year), Gov. Hull, and Cathelia Robinett from the Center for Digital Government during the ceremony. 

As an aside, I had breakfast with Gov. Hull and her husband last year during the Olympics.  I just sat down at the Governor's Mansion for breakfast before and ISS event and talked to them for quite a while.  I didn't know she was the Governor of Arizona until later.
