Yesterday was the 90th birthday of former Governor Rose Mofford.
Mofford served as governor after the impeachment of Evan Mecham, becoming the first woman to serve in that office. Interestingly, we’ve only had one male governor in the years since she served.
Mofford is descended from Croats who had migrated to the mining communities of Arizona. In celebration of her birthday, the Croatian national soccer team delivered a beating to Ireland yesterday.
