Jon Wright is announcing his candidacy for Position 3 on the Tarkington ISD board of trustees.
“After an in depth discussion with my family, I have accepted the opportunity to run for the Tarkington ISD School Board Position 3. With this honor brings great responsibility to the students, faculty, administration and the Tarkington community,” Wright said. “I accept this challenge to assist current and future TISD board members with the difficult decisions in the best interest of Christian morals, integrity and honest character.”
Wright says that while he is in the race with some of Tarkington’s finest opponents, he hopes to be the choice for Position 3.
“I have lived in Tarkington for 26 years while being married to Kim Sizemore and raising three children in this community. Our oldest daughter, Miranda Wright Pope, attended Tarkington from kindergarten through high school,” he said. “Our other two children started school in Tarkington and were removed by the third-grade to pursue more specific teaching needs. This is one reason I am running to help pursue learning opportunities so others will have the opportunities we didn’t.”
He is a member of Rural Shade Baptist Church where he and his family go to strengthen their faith. He recently accepted leadership of the Men’s Ministry Group at Rural Shade Baptist Church.
“I have spent many years through my children’s young life, supporting and volunteering my time to sit on Tarkington’s Baseball Board, Youth Football Board and also the Tarkington Youth Basketball Association,” Wright said. “My children have also been active showing animals through Tarkington 4H for many years. My middle daughter, now 17 is very active in Texas High School Rodeo and has qualified for state each year of her participation. My youngest, is my son and he is an active hunter and loves all sports and the outdoors. I would appreciate your support for Position 3. Thank you for the opportunity to serve our community. God Bless!”
