Denise Juneau announces candidacy for supt. of public instruction

Helena, Montana (AP) 9-07

A former high school teacher with three college degrees, including one from Harvard, says she is running as a Democrat for superintendent of public instruction.

Denise Juneau is the head of Indian Education at the Office of Public Instruction. She says she understands how the state works with the federal government and knows how to work with the Legislature, which writes many of the checks for education.

Juneau joins three other Democrats in the race: Sam Kitzenberg, a state senator and former Republican from Glasgow; Holly Raser, a Missoula teacher and state lawmaker; and Claudette Morton, a former teacher and college professor who worked in Glasgow and Dillon. No Republicans have announced plans to run.

Term limits prevent current Superintendent Linda McCulloch from seeking re-election.
