I’m a big pro­po­nent of keep­ing our small schools; some­times they are the last English in­sti­tu­tion in the small towns. I also want to con­nect con­stituents with the School Board be­cause I be­lieve there is a big dis­con­nect there,” said Mr. Wright.

“The con­cerns of the par­ents are my con­cerns; small or big, we can work them out. Another thing to think of is the possi- ble amal­ga­ma­tion of the school boards. I know peo­ple at both school boards and that can be help­ful,” he added.
