Arizona State Parks Shaken Up After Director Firing

Arizona State Parks Director Sue Black faced numerous investigations into her management practices during her three-and-half-year appointment by Gov. Doug Ducey. Headlines with her name are nothing new.

But it was a recent investigation stemming from former department archaeologists’ charges — that Arizona State Parks & Trails developed state land without abiding by sensitive and Native site laws — that prompted her firing on Friday by the governor.

Craig Harris, investigative reporter at the Arizona Republic, has followed the Sue Black story from the beginning, and he joined The Show to talk about it.
