Support Leolga Wright for IR school board

April 25, 2013

I am asking you to support a community service colleague and one of Indian River School District’s most energetic voices, incumbent school board member - Leolga T. Wright, for election on Tuesday, May 14. Please encourage your friends to support Leolga.

Leolga was originally appointed to fill a vacant school board position and must seek election to continue serving the residents of the Indian River School District. Leolga is a native Sussex Countian.

Leolga has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most reasonable and responsive school board members in terms of constituent and community service to her district. Leolga is an active volunteer with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company as well as an active firefighter with the same organization for more than 25 years. Leolga is active with the Sussex County Meals on Wheels and volunteers weekly to deliver meals to residents of the county. Leolga is proud of her Native American heritage and is affiliated with the Nanticoke Indian Association where she devotes many hours of volunteerism as well. Leolga worships at the Indian Mission United Methodist Church and provides friendship, leadership and guidance to her fellow parishioners.

Leolga and her husband, Dallas, are small business people that operate a farming entity in Sussex County. Leolga brings an important perspective to the school board discussions regarding potential policy and procedural impact to children, families, and employees. This is why her voice is so important to our school board leadership team. I value her opinion and thoughtful perspective on issues that impact the Indian River School District and our children.

Leolga is one of the strongest voices on issues of educating our children and championing causes like Full Day Kindergarten, school safety, facility renovations, and quality working conditions for all employees.

Please join me in working to bring Leolga Wright back for another term on the Indian River School District Board of Education.
