Munsil endorses Huppenthal

PHOENIX – Republican leader Len Munsil today announced his endorsement of State Senator John Huppenthal for Superintendent of Public Instruction in 2010.  Senator Huppenthal, the current Senate Education Chairman, is weighing a potential run for this position.

“Ensuring a quality education for every child has always been an important issue for me, which is why I’m urging Arizona Republicans to support John Huppenthal for Superintendent of Public Instruction,” said Munsil.  “We need change at the Arizona Department of Education, and John Huppenthal is the right conservative leader to deliver that change.”

“Senator Huppenthal has the vision, the experience and the plan to deliver the reforms vital to improving accountability, increasing parental choice in education and boosting academic achievement in Arizona schools,” said Munsil.  “He also has the strength of character, depth of knowledge and intellectual rigor needed to take on the education bureaucracy.”

Munsil is one of Arizona’s most respected conservative leaders.  He was the Republican Party nominee for Governor of Arizona in 2006, winning the Republican primary by a large margin in his first run for public office.

“Len is a conservative leader that Arizona Republicans trust and I’m grateful for his support,” said Huppenthal.  “As a conservative reformer, Len has worked tirelessly for Arizona families and helped pass laws that promote education and improve our quality of life.”

Munsil’s endorsement of Huppenthal follows endorsements from other popular Republican leaders such as Secretary of State Ken Bennett and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Huppenthal is one of Arizona’s leading authorities on education issues.  In addition to being the current Senate Education Chairman, Huppenthal has served for 17 consecutive years on the State House and State Senate education committees.

Huppenthal played a key role in helping create school choice for parents. In 1995, as Senate Education Chairman, his legislation took the caps off charter schools.  This legislation moved Arizona to first in the nation in school choice (ALEC rankings).

During Huppenthal’s legislative career he successfully developed and passed over 200 bills – the most of any legislator in Arizona history.

Huppenthal is speaking to audiences statewide to assess public support.  He will make a formal decision about running for Superintendent this coming January.  For additional information, please call Senator John Huppenthal at (480) 330-3215 or visit www.JohnHuppenthal.com.  Senator Huppenthal is on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/huppenthal.

  1. “During Huppenthal’s legislative career he successfully developed and passed over 200 bills – the most of any legislator in Arizona history.”

    Anyone can ‘develop’ bills. And some people know how to get them ‘passed.’ Can we have an evaluation of these bills?

  2. Shouldn’t the ‘resign and run’ law kick in about now?

  3. Citizen Kane says

    Career politicians of a feather flock together.

    What does Huppenthal know about education? Diddly squat – except how to waste tax dollars on Educrat Administrator’s requests for more and more of our money.

  4. Citizen Kane says

    200 pieces of legislation … how much has that cost the taxpayer?

  5. Ron, Huppenthal was one of the architects of the tuition tax credit scam. I would evaluate that as a failure.
