Democrat club meeting features two speakers

Posted

The Northwest Valley Democrat Club invites residents to meet speakers Kathy Hoffman and Joan Campbell 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 11, in the Foundation Building Quail Room, 14465 N. R.H. Johnson Blvd.

Hoffman was elected Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction in 2018 making her the first educator to lead in the Arizona Department of Education in more than 20 years. When she was elected, she knew that she wanted to re-imagine what this role meant for students, teachers and families. This is not just an administrative position for her, but instead an office that can elevate the voices of our students and be an advocate for our public schools and educators.

Hoffman has spent her entire career working in public education, first as a preschool teacher and then as a speech-language pathologist. She began her career in the Vail School District in southern Arizona before joining the Peoria Unified School District. She saw firsthand the problems within schools and the challenges students face everyday. During her first year in office, she visited more than 150 schools across the state in all 15 counties and seven tribal nations. Hoffman knew that she needed to talk to our educators and students directly so she could make informed policy decisions for schools.

Campbell is the Community Affairs Coordinator with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. The MCAO Community Affairs Division is involved in a number of community outreach efforts in their mission “Keeping Families Safe.” Campbell previously led classes on topics such as identity theft, travel safety, trending scams and home security. She has a strong background working in crime prevention and is diligent in researching crime trends and evolving scams to ensure her presentations are relevant and timely.

Campbell has worked for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office for nine years, and prior to joining MCAO, worked for the Arizona Department of Education and in law enforcement for the City of Glendale.

The Northwest Valley Democrat Club also hosts breakfast 9 a.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Betty’s Rooste, 14418 Meeker Blvd.
