Wilson seeks Fairfield-Suisun School District seat

FAIRFIELD — Chris L. Wilson, who calls himself a second-generation product of the Fairfield-Suisun School District, is running in the Nov. 4 election to represent Area 4 as a trustee.

His mother went to Armijo High School, said Wilson, who noted his son will be starting kindergarten in the school district..

Wilson, 42, said he seeks the school board seat after questions that include why the school district has spent bond money on a new building at Armijo High School for administrators when the decades-old school should be improved.

He said Area 4 is densely populated but has had several schools, including Sullivan Middle School, closed.

Robert Lucky has filed for the Area 4 trustee seat, which includes Texas Street and Travis Boulevard.

The seat is the only contested election so far. Seats representing Trustee Areas 4, 5 and 7 are on the ballot in November.

Jonathan Richardson seeks the Area 5 trustee seat, and David Isom, president of the board of trustees, is running for Area 7.

Trustee Area 7 includes Clay Bank Road and part of Air Base Parkway. Area 5 includes Sunset Avenue and East Kentucky Street.

Filing for Fairfield-Suisun school board seats is at the Solano County Registrar of Voters office, 675 Texas St. in Fairfield. Filing began July 14 and ends Friday. Candidates must be 18 years old, a resident of the trustee area they seek to represent, a registered voter and not employed by the Fairfield-Suisun district.

Wilson said one reason more people don’t run for school board is many residents commute to jobs and may not be able to make the 5 p.m. start to board meetings.

“It’s a sleeper town,” he said of Fairfield.

Wilson said he plans to walk precincts as part of his campaign.

“I’ll be doing the legwork,” the candidate said.

    So Chris L. Wilson should win because he is second genetation in Fairfield because his mother went to Armijo? That is it? I really,hope the voters vote for Robert Lucky this Nov. 4th. It sounds like he has a lot to offer, especially with the disabled.

    I am proud and excited to be running for Area 4 Trustee. My parents graduated from this district, I graduated from this district, and now my son is a student in the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District. I love the history of this city and the part its schools have played in that history. Area 4 represents approximately 20% of the students in the district. It has six campuses, including the Fairfield-Suisun Adult School and Sam Yeto High. Our area is diverse, densely populated, and the schools represent students of all ages, traditional and non-traditional alike. The campuses in Area 4 are among the oldest facilities in the district. I will work for what is best for every student and every school. Success for Area 4 means success for the entire district.

    I also wanted to mention that my information regarding me, my experience and my campaign can be found on Facebook and my website. If you search for the phrase "Chris Wilson for School Board", either using Google or Facebook, the sites should be easy to find. I am unable to post a direct link here due to security settings, but would encourage voters to visit both sites.
