Paul Wright, Candidate for 12th District, U.S. House of Representatives
Paul was born in Buncombe County, NC to Roy and Marie Wright in 1948. His father retired from CP&L/Duke power. Paul remembers his father telling him of climbing poles to install the very first lights to homes in the mountains. Both his father's and mother’s families trace back to settlements in the mountain area by Revolutionary War veterans.
Raised in Haywood County, Paul attended Waynesville and Canton public schools. While growing up, he helped on his uncle’s farm and was a construction subcontractor for home building in the Asheville area.
Paul is running to try to do a small part to give witness of our dire need to come together as a people - under the faith of our fathers - under God and His Son and their commands to us.
