I’ve spent 20 years in public policy fighting to strengthen families and protect the innocence of children. Abused children must be protected.
The liberal New Times has just published a detailed and balanced review of Janet Napolitano’s failed efforts to “fix” CPS. It discusses a serious “misstep” early in her term that has led to increase caseloads and turnover for caseworkers, and resulted in kids being left in shelters for long periods and being put into unsafe foster homes. But rather than have me characterize it, you should read it for yourself before you vote. Here is one key sentence:

“You don’t read about it in the papers, but the latest statistics show even more children in Arizona dying from maltreatment than before Napolitano took office.”
