Ronald Jack Wright[1] (born April 8, 1953) is an American Republican politician from the state of Texas. He is the member of the United States House of Representatives from Texas's 6th congressional district. The district is anchored in Arlington and southeastern Fort Worth, and also includes a swath of exurban territory to the south.

Early life and education

Wright was born on April 8, 1953, in Cherokee County, Texas. He attended the University of Texas at Arlington for two years, studying History, Psychology, and Political Science.[2][3]

Career

Wright served on the Arlington City Council from 2000 to 2008 and as mayor pro-tem of Arlington from 2004 to 2008.[4] He then served as chief of staff and district director for Congressman Joe Barton from 2000 to 2009. Wright was appointed Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector in 2011, serving until 2018.[5][6]

Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector

In 2014, Ron Wright's office added the motto "In God We Trust" to its stationery including on tax assessment envelopes and tax statements.[7][8] He defended the move on Fox and Friends by saying, "It helps define us as a people … helps define us as a nation."

In 2018, Wright's office came under scrutiny by KDFW for mistakenly placing a tax lien and bills on the wrong Tarrant County family. In an interview with KDFW's Steve Noviello, Ron Wright repeatedly made false statements about the case.[9]

Elections

2018 general election

In the 2018 elections, Wright defeated Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez for the United States House of Representatives in Texas's 6th congressional district to succeed Barton.[10][11]

Tenure

In June 2019, a video was released by Reproaction, an abortion rights advocacy group, that showed Wright stating women should "absolutely" be punished for performing self-managed abortions, as "they committed murder."[12]

In July 2019, Wright announced he has been diagnosed with lung cancer.[13]
