Saying he's concerned for the future of Idaho students, an East Idaho education administrator says he's prepared to challenge Idaho Superintendent of Public Education Tom Luna in the May Republican primary.

Randy Jensen, who has served as a principal for 25 years and currently has the top job at William Thomas Middle School in American Falls announced Jan. 18 that he has filed the necessary paperwork with the Idaho secretary of state's office to mount a challenge against Luna.

Jensen says he'll be in Boise this Friday, Jan. 24 for an official campaign announcement.

"It is a very important position, important for children and important for Idaho," wrote Jensen in his campaign press release.

Jensen's wife, Kristen, has served on the American Falls City Council for 23 years.
