OKLAHOMA CITY – 

State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister has announced her candidacy for governor Thursday morning.

Hofmeister will run as a Democrat.

Hofmeister, from Tulsa, was sworn in as Oklahoma’s 14th State Superintendent of Public Instruction in 2015. She was re-elected in 2018 and continues to serve out that four-year term.

She was appointed by Gov. Mary Fallin to serve on the Oklahoma State Board of Education in 2012, before her run for superintendent of public instruction.

She is known for her push to repeal the Bush-era No Child Left Behind Act, saying its approach to public education was “one-size-fits-all.”

Hofmeister is a former public school teacher and owner of Kumon Math & Reading Centers for 15 years.

She is a mother of four and resides in Tulsa with her husband of 31 years.
