Episode 43: Candidate interview, Debbie Critchfield

The May 17 primary elections are looming.

And Kevin Richert’s podcast is beginning to shift into campaign mode.

We’ve invited candidates in the key statewide primaries to appear on the podcast. This week, we interview Debbie Critchfield, a former State Board of Education president running for superintendent of public instruction on the Republican ticket.

Watch for more candidate interviews in the weeks to come.
