Goldwater Institute named "Best Capitol Watchdog" by AZ Capitol Times

Arizona Capitol Times editors and readers honor Institute's work

Last night the Arizona Capitol Times announced the Goldwater Institute won its annual "Best Capitol Watchdog" award.

Darcy Olsen, president of the Goldwater Institute said, "There are a lot of watchdog organizations doing powerful work in Arizona, and we are thrilled to be counted among the most effective."

Readers and the editorial board of the Capitol Times make the selection annually, along with some 50 other awards. In winning the award, the Goldwater Institute edged out the Sierra Club and the Arizona Tax Research Association.

The Goldwater Institute was established in 1988 as an independent, non-partisan public policy research organization, and has grown to one of the largest state policy organizations in the country.

Last year, the Goldwater Institute created the nation's first litigation center to be fully housed within a think tank. With the addition of the litigation center, Clint Bolick, the Institute's litigation director, said in a recent interview, "We've become a watchdog that bites."
