Wisconsin has been home to my family since before its statehood. I grew up in the central part of the state, and after serving as a high school principal on Chicago’s south side, my wife and I decided to put down roots and raise a family back home in Wisconsin. Now living in the Bear Creek Township, I am the assistant superintendent of a local school district.
I value the identity of our region and see a strong path forward through smart investments in our rich traditions. I am active with economic development work, serve as the president of a local rails-to-trails effort, and participate in other civic and community groups. Let’s work together to advocate for local control of strong public schools and responsive municipalities. Let’s champion the need for wise investment in infrastructure and broadband, and find ways to attract and retain the next generation to build their lives in our dynamic rural communities.
Jeff Wright is a strong voice for our communities and the values that make the 51st Assembly District and State of Wisconsin an extraordinary place to work, play, and raise a family. Jeff and Emily, along with their two children, raise chickens and turkeys on their farm west of Plain. Jeff is a respected educator and community builder with a reputation for connecting public and private partners to expand opportunities for students and businesses alike. He looks forward to working with people throughout the 51st District to fight for investment in our region and to preserve both our land and beautiful Wisconsin way of life.
