- 1. Diane Douglas Underwater; Frank Riggs Swimming to the Top
According to a recent Capitol Times Yellow Sheet Report titled “Underwater is a Bad Place to Be,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas is going to have an uphill battle to get reelected.
A recent poll by GOP consultant Chris Baker shows incumbent Douglas with ratings of 15 percent favorability and a whopping 47 percent unfavorability. Another 38 percent had no opinion. “I think Diane Douglas has probably reached the point of no return,” Baker told the Capitol Times reporter.
As stated in the article, “the poll surveyed 500 self-described likely voters (all of whom have voted in at least one of the last two general elections) from June 14-15, with a partisan breakdown of 35 percent Republicans, 31 percent Democrats and 33 percent independents. Of those 500 voters, 70 percent were contacted on landlines via autodial, while 30 percent were interviewed by live callers on their cell phones. The poll had a margin of error of plus-minus 4.9 percent.”
This is what happens when a novice takes office with no business or executive experience.
Arizona needs a strong, tested and proven Superintendent with the right combination of executive experience, managerial skills, knowledge of education policies and practices, integrity, and judgment to lead our state's K-12 schools! That person is Frank Riggs.Click here to read more
- 2. Frank Riggs for Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction
Yes, I'm supporting Frank Riggs for Arizona's next Superintendent of Public Instruction, and I'm downright enthusiastic about it. Why? Without a doubt, he's the most qualified. Also, he puts Students first, not the institution of public education. He respects and welcomes dialogue with Parents, not paid, self-interested lobbyists. He is a proven education leader for school choice, local control, and quality education. He believes that quality education means focusing on classroom teaching and learning, and on recruiting and retaining the very best teachers for Arizona’s kids. He has promised to advocate and work tirelessly for a high-quality education to help every child reach their full potential, regardless of where they live or their socio-economic circumstances. He also intends to make the Arizona Department of Education fully transparent, responsive, and accountable to parents, educators and taxpayers.
Please take a look at his website, and you'll see that not only does he "say" all the right things, but he has also "done" all the right things.
Frank Riggs has earned the endorsements of leaders and parents who want the education of Arizona's children to be the First Priority! See below for some of their statements about Frank Riggs, and then read his record of leadership, and you'll know why these dedicated people are fighting for Frank Riggs as Arizona's next Superintendent of Public Instruction:
Jared Taylor has stated this about Frank Riggs: "Frank Riggs is the most qualified candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction in Arizona’s history.” Not only is Mr. Taylor an anti-Common Core constitutional conservative serving as a Member of the State Board of Education and Gilbert Town Councilman, he is also the business manager for Heritage Academy. One of the missions of this charter school is to ensure that its students learn about the lives, beliefs, and accomplishments of the heroes of America – our founding fathers and mothers – and to better understand the values and principles which governed their lives and upon which they built the American nation.
Mr. Taylor is a leader of the Mommy Lobby, with whom I have been privileged to work for the last 6 years, focusing on defeating The Common Core Machine in Arizona.Click here to read more

- 8. Anti-Common Core Moms have an Ally in Frank Riggs as AZ Governor
The title of this article that recently appeared in the conservative newspaper Arizona Daily Independent, says it all. Frank Riggs is the only candidate for Governor who has been crystal clear about his stand against Common Core (aka Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards). He's going to rescind it on Day 1.
No other candidate for Governor has been as firm or bold. They have, at best, been wishy-washy. Scott Smith seems to think there's a difference between Common Core and Arizona's College and Career Standards. (There isn't.) Do we want a governor we have to bring up to speed on an issue we've been researching and talking about for two years?

- 10. Frank Riggs Stands up for the Tenth Amendment
Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs is the only gubernatorial candidate who's a military veteran (U.S. Army); the only candidate with actual public safety experience as a police officer and deputy sheriff; and the only candidate with experience in K-12 education as a school board president and CEO of the largest nonprofit corporation and Community Development Financial Institution dedicated to helping public charter schools with their financing and facility needs.
He's also the only candidate who's a former U.S. Congressman where he served with distinction as a leader and reformer. He organized the Gang of 7 to expose the House Bank and Post Office scandals and earned top ratings from National Right to Life and the NRA for his voting record, as well as from Citizens Against Government Waste and Watchdogs of the Treasury for cutting federal spending and taxes. As Riggs says, a plan without experience is just words on paper; but a plan with the right experience is the "real deal." Riggs' experience and qualifications have shown in the candidate forums and debates and has Republican voters statewide talking about his candidacy.
