The audit of the Arizona State Parks system came as no surprise to those of us who have served as board members, long time staff and hardworking foundation volunteers.

Thanks to the Brewer administration with help from the Republican-controlled Legislature, the state parks systems has been robbed of revenues, deprived of voter-approved designated Heritage Fund monies and limited in their ability to raise revenues to offset expenses.

The staff of Arizona State Parks have been hard-working and dedicated to the preservation and improvements required for these treasures. In my experience working with these professionals, I have seen folks who don’t know what a 40-hour work week is all about. To those who worked at the parks it has always been a 24/7 dedication.

It is time for Gov. Brewer to change her approach of destroying state government and ensure that funds are reinstated and that necessary legislation is passed to give Arizona State Parks the tools they need to do the job that they are dedicated to perform.
