Excerpt:Â Although listed on the governor's webpage as an "Office of the Governor," the Arizona Mexico Commission is not a "commission." It is, in fact, a private, not-for-profit, 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. The organization's offices are in the same state-owned office building that houses the office. Executive Director Grady Harn says that the organization is in a "public/private partnership with the state of Arizona."On Dec. 6, 2007, these three questions were asked of the governor's director of communications, Shiloh Mitchell: Â
- Is there a written agreement defining the public/private partnership with the Arizona Mexico Commission?Â
- How much rent does the AMC pay to the state of Arizona for its office space?Â
- Does the state of Arizona provide funding to the AMC?
