AZ SPI Candidates

On January 30, 2018, the Chandler Education Association and Valley Interfaith Project held a Superintendent of Public Instruction Candidate Forum to help community members make an informed choice on this important election. The following candidates participated:

  • Stacie Banks
  • Bob Branch
  • Diane Douglas (incumbent)
  • Jonathan Gelbart
  • Kathy Hoffman
  • Tracy Livingston
  • Frank Riggs
  • David Schapira

The purpose of this non-partisan event was to provide voters with candidates’ perspectives on key education issues facing our state. Questions related to Arizona education policy were given to all candidates in advance, and each candidate was given the same amount of time to answer each question.

Video of the forum is available online:
