Jeff Guldner spent yesterday afternoon testifying at the ACC Open Meeting and he big takeaway was that he committed not to participate in any ACC elections.
Prior to 2014, it would have been unthinkable for APS (Actually PNW) to participate in elections, however in 2014, the company secretly spent over $10 million dollars to back two Republican candidates. The company did the same in 2016, but did so openly. The FBI and justice department have an ongoing investigation into the 2014 spending.
The company had previously refused to commit to stay out of future ACC races, so Guldner's announcement is a major policy shift.
