Jack Wright running for 2012 Falmouth City Council

My name is Jack Wright and I am a candidate for Falmouth City Council. I am a life-long Pendletonian, a resident Falmouthian and currently reside at 330 Reservoir Hill. For 36 years I have enjoyed the pleasure of marriage to Cynthia Schlueter Wright, also a life-long Pendletonian. We have been blessed with five children, five grandchildren and another grandchild on the way.

For the past 19 years I have served this community as the Economic Development Director for Falmouth and Pendleton County. Earlier this year I announced my retirement from the above-mentioned position effective December 1, 2012. Although I am retiring from that position, I still desire to contribute to the community. Therefore, my candidacy for Falmouth City Council.

I proudly graduated from Pendleton County High School in 1966. I enlisted in the United States Army in 1968 (during the Vietnam War era) and served a three-year military commitment to my country with a one-year (1969-70) Vietnam tour of duty.

Prior to assuming the duties of the above-mentioned economic development position, from 1990 to 1993, I served the community as a Magistrate with the Pendleton County Fiscal Court. It was my first experience in the political field, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and have since desired to rejoin the challenging leadership endeavor.

My experience as County Magistrate and Economic Development Director has provided the opportunity to develop excellent working relationships with, and knowledge of, several local, state and federal government agencies. These relationships should be beneficial to the city when I am elected and serve as your councilperson.

Due to suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), a debilitating respiratory issue, I shall not be able to participate in the typical door-to-door campaign activities. However, I look forward to meeting the voters of Falmouth at other functions that might occur during the campaign season. Also, feel free to contact me at 859-654-5511, or email to (, anytime to discuss my political philosophies as they relate to the City of Falmouth.

On November 6, I ask the voters of Falmouth to "Vote for Jack" for City Council.
