CHEYENNE, Wyoming — The man who headed the Wyoming Education Department during the exile of Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has returned to Arizona.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported Monday (http://tinyurl.com/ldbotpf ) Rich Crandall is involved in a number of projects in Arizona including working on political races and serving as chairman of CN Resource, an educational nutrition company he started.
Crandall is a former Arizona state senator. He was appointed director of the Education Department in August 2013 after the Legislature passed a law stripping Superintendent Cindy Hill of her powers. Hill was elected to the job but lawmakers were unhappy with her performance.
The Wyoming Supreme Court ruled in January the law was unconstitutional.
After Hill reclaimed her responsibilities, Crandall served as a consultant in the governor's office until May 2.
