Candidate Biography

From candidate's Facebook page

Wisconsin has been home to Jeff Wright’s family since before its statehood. He grew up in the central part of the state, and after serving as a high school principal on Chicago’s south side, Jeff and his wife Emily decided to put down roots and raise a family back in his home state of Wisconsin. Jeff and his family live in the Bear Creek Township and Jeff is the assistant superintendent for a local school district.

Jeff values the identity of this region and sees a strong path forward through smart investments in its best traditions. He is active with economic development work in Spring Green, Sauk Prairie, and Plain, serves as the president of the Friends of the Great Sauk State Trail, and participates in other civic and community groups. He's a strong advocate for local control of schools and municipalities. Jeff champions the need for wise investment in infrastructure and broadband, and is a leading voice for finding ways to attract and retain the next generation to build their lives in these rural communities.

Jeff Wright is a strong voice for our communities and the values that make the State of Wisconsin an extraordinary place to work, play, and raise a family. Jeff and Emily along with their two children raise chickens on their farm north of Spring Green. 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 Wisconsin to fight for investment in our region and to preserve both our land and beautiful rural way of life.
