Former FHS Principal Interested In State Senate Seat

10/27/17 – 5:24 A.M.

The former principal of Findlay High School wants to fill the State Senate seat left vacant by Cliff Hite. The Courier reports Craig Kupferberg announced his intent to pursue the position Thursday. Kupferberg tells the newspaper he plans to challenge the Legislature’s double standards. He adds, “I’ve noticed that the conservative principles of local control and deregulation that work for private industry and business are not being applied to local schools or local governments.”

Kupferberg plans to run for the position next year if the Republican caucus doesn’t pick him to fill Hite’s seat.

State Representative Craig Riedel of Defiance also announced his interest in the position Thursday. The Republican caucus is taking applications until November 6.
