Two months after announcing his re-election bid, Mick Founts decided not to seek a second term as San Joaquin County’s superintendent of schools.
“I’ve done a lot of good things, I think, and have started a lot of programs,” Founts said in a phone interview. “At this point, I’d like to look at education a little differently. That detail is for another day.”
