The principle of “service before self” has guided Wright throughout his life. A native Augustan, Wright was an Eagle Scout, private pilot, and marathon runner. He graduated from Westside High School and earned an appointment to the United States Naval Academy. Commissioned an Ensign in 1982, Wright earned his wings of gold as a Naval Flight Officer and flew the F-14 Tomcat on multiple combat deployments, including 54 missions in Operation Desert Storm. From a young age, Wright knew serving our country and protecting the values that made it great was the right thing to do.
Wright brought his family back home in 2000 and started a successful real estate law firm and homeowner association management company. In addition to running his businesses and raising his family, Wright still finds time to serve the district as a board member of The Augusta Warrior Project, a board member of the Georgia School for Innovation and The Classics (charter school in Hephzibah) and a member of his church vestry. Wright has a remarkable record of leadership and experience that embodies his unwavering commitment to service.
Wright loves Augusta! As a strong conservative Republican, he is committed to reducing taxes, enhancing public education, and passing pro-growth legislation that assists the middle class, Augusta University, and Fort Gordon. He wants his home to be a place we are all proud of, and he is committed to its future.
Wright earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from the Naval Academy, a Masters in National Security Studies from Georgetown University, and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Georgia School of Law. Wright and his wife, Sheri, have been married 28 years and are the proud parents of three daughters: Collier (24), Margaret (22), and Grace (16). The McLeods attend the Church of the Good Shepherd in Augusta.
