One of Kingman's own has been recognized as Legislator of the Year by the Arizona Manufacturers Council.

Rep. Doris Goodale, R-Kingman, was awarded the honor on May 31 at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix Hotel. According to the council, she "was given the honor in appreciation of her advocacy for education reform and the enhancement of scholastic performance standards."

"Although I am thrilled to have received the award from the AMC, I cannot, in all honesty, say that I alone deserve the honor," Goodale said. "I am comforted by the fact that there are so many other good Arizonans who have been just as committed to improving our state's education standards, which is what I believe will maintain our standing as the nation's best place to live, work and raise a family."
