Mick Wright is the Republican nominee for Shelby County Commission in District 3, representing Bartlett, Lakeland and northeast Memphis. He shares our values and will serve as an effective and vocal advocate for our community. As commissioner, Mick Wright will work to improve public safety, strengthen the local economy and support public schools, while holding the line on taxes and spending.
As commissioner, Mick will continue efforts to eliminate the county debt and to reduce our property tax rate, which is the highest in Tennessee and double the state average.
Mick believes we need to reverse the migration out of Shelby County by making this a safer place to live, with high-paying jobs and a well-educated workforce made possible by great schools.
Mick hopes to continue serving the community of Bartlett, Lakeland and northeast Shelby as your next county commissioner and would appreciate your vote on August 2.
