2018 Elections - Meet the Candidates

Dear AzSCA Members and Partners,

As we continue to advocate for the great profession of school counseling, we thought it would be relevant to reach out to the candidates for Governor and Superintendent of Public Instruction to hear their thoughts and insights about the ratio, role and respect of school counselors in the state of Arizona. Five questions that were derived by AzSCA members and our Board at Large were sent to the two candidates for Governor, Doug Ducey and David Garcia, and the two candidates for Superintendent of Public Instruction, Kathy Hoffman and Frank Riggs.  The questions were emailed on September 26 with a return request date of October 12.  We received responses from David Garcia and Kathy Hoffman.  Although AzSCA does not endorse any candidate or political party we would encourage you to read the responses provided. Please click on the candidate’s name below to see their responses.

Our Board Chair, Janine Menard, will host a Facebook Live on Wednesday, October 17th at 4:00 pm to also review this process.  We hope you can join us!

Respectfully,
AzSCA Board of Directors 

David Garcia
Kathy Hoffman
