Seth Wright

Hello, my name is Seth Wright and I’m running for one of the Israel Township Trustee positions. I currently work in the HVAC/R field and am involved with our family farm.

This is my first time running for a public office. I graduated from Eaton/MVCTC.

I believe I’m qualified for this position, as I have my Class A CDL – currently the township has three CDL trucks – and I’m proficient at operating various machinery, and I have good knowledge of the roadways and cemeteries in the township. If elected, I would aim to make township operations as streamline as possible, and keep up maintenance on the roadways and cemeteries.
