Crandall to quit Ariz. Legislature later this year

Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - State Sen. Rich Crandall says he plans to resign from the Legislature later this year, after the current session is over but before the 2014 session.

According to the Arizona Capitol Times, the Mesa Republican says he has received numerous offers to work as an education consultant for various groups, school districts and national education leaders.

Crandall is chairman of the Senate Education Committee and a former member of the Mesa Unified School District's governing board.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors would appoint a midterm replacement. The board would choose from among three possible replacements recommended by Republican Party officials in Crandall's legislative district.

Crandall was re-elected in November, defeating a more conservative state representative in the GOP primary for the Senate seat in a redrawn district.
