State School Superintendent Huppenthal won’t resign from post

KTVKBy Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services/East Valley Tribune

The state’s top school official apologized and repudiated anonymous blog posts he has made for at least the last four years equating welfare recipients with “lazy pigs” and declaring there should be no Spanish-language radio, TV, billboards and newspapers.

But John Huppenthal said this afternoon he has no intention of resigning the post to which he was first elected in 2010, and Huppenthal said he will not drop his bid for reelection this year.

Huppenthal said the comments were not meant in mean spirit but simply his effort to spur a public policy debate on important issues. He said that is why he wrote, “This is America, speak English.”
