Glenda Ritz launches campaign with attack on Tony BennettJune 14th, 2012 at 11:11 am by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
John Gregg, the Democratic candidate for governor, helped launch the campaign of Glenda Ritz this morning. She’s the Democrat running for state school Superintendent.
The two appeared outside the Statehouse for an announcement that relied heavily on criticism of incumbent Republican Tony Bennett. “He stood by while the legislature cut $300 million from our education budget,” said Ritz, “funding that our children deserved.”
“Glenda’s been an educator for 33 years,” said Gregg. “She knows the best ideas don’t come out of this building right here behind me.”
Ritz teaches third grade at Crooked Creek School in Washington Township.
