Fort Worth, TX - Wallace Bridges campaign for Fort Worth Independent School Board of Education District 4 received the endorsement and support today from education leader and former Fort Worth ISD School Board President and Member Christene Moss.
“I am honored to receive the support of former Fort Worth ISD Board of Education President Christene Moss for my candidacy. Former Board President Moss is a respected education leader in Texas and understands the issues the students, teachers, parents, and our communities face in District 4. Having her support for my campaign demonstrates the ongoing growing support that we are building across District 4” said Mr. Bridges.
Mr. Bridges is running in the special election to fill the vacancy on the Fort Worth Independent School District Board of Education District 4 that was created with the unfortunate passing of former Board Member Daphne Brookins. Mr. Bridges has lived in the Historic Southside neighborhood of Fort Worth since 1997 and has worked as a community organizer focusing on youth for decades. Last week Fort Worth City Councilmembers Chris Nettles and Jared Williams announced their endorsements of Wallace.
“Former Board President Moss and many in our community understand how important this election is to ensure that we address the serious concerns many parents, students, and teachers have about our schools. The ongoing deficiencies in student performance must be addressed to ensure that our neighborhoods have a strong and vibrant future. I look forward to working with former Board President Moss and all our neighbors to ensure that every child receives a quality education that allows them to pursue their dreams” said Mr. Bridges.
