Burges sworn in to replace Bundgaard
The northwest Valley has a new state senator. Republican Representative Judy Burges was sworn in Monday to replace former Senator Scott Bundgaard.
JUDY BURGES: … And that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties, of the office of Arizona State Senator, of Arizona State Senator.
Senate President Steve Pierce says he's known Burges for quite a while,
STEVE PIERCE: We started out years ago, at the Republican Party in Prescott. We worked together a number of times up there on different issues. She's a trooper.
The arch-conservative, Burges, was among those supporting a bill to end citizenship privileges for the children of illegal immigrants, last year. Bundgaard resigned shortly before he would have been forced to testify in an ethics investigation over a public brawl on the freeway, with an ex-girlfriend, last year.
