Moving up? Roy Grimes looks to higher office

Roy Grimes, currently president of the Sacramento City Unified school board, has political ambitions.

Capitol Morning Report today reports that Grimes has formed a committee to explore a run for an important statewide office -- Superintendent of Public Instruction.  Jack O'Connell is termed out and Grimes, apparently, wants to replace him.

Doesn't Grimes have his hands full with still-unresolved local school issues that require a full measure of concentration and effort?

What in Grimes' record indicates that he's material for statewide office?  Send along your thoughts.
