Working for Richard Elias

In March 2002 Richard Elias' appoint Keith Bagwell as his top aide. Bagwell, longtime environmental reporter who fled the mismanagement at the Arizona Daily Star a couple of years ago, gives Elias instant green credibility. He will be paid at the annual rate of $55,000.

Bagwell, 51, grew up in Phoenix and joined the Star in 1986. He is an absolute ideologue, a dedicated liberal who protests military action in Afghanistan, the death penalty and rapacious development. He is professional, dignified and not given to the malicious game-playing enjoyed by Grijalva's staff. That will be a welcome change that will help the District 5's advocacy of environmental issues. And Bagwell doesn't just regurgitate. He actually understands the science of ecology. He and his wife, Carolyn Trowbridge, a nurse and fellow longtime protester, live in Armory Park in Eckstrom's District 2.[6]
