Billie Joe is the first person to graduate from college in his family. Raised the middle child of five in a biracial family along with his nana (great-grandma), who only spoke Spanish, he went back to teach in the community and for the school district that his family grew up attending and working for. As a passionate believer in education, Billie Joe is once again wanting to serve in the high school district that his family works for and in the community he calls home with his partner who runs a community non-profit.

He earned his B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Public Administration from California State University, Fullerton. Billie Joe went on to earn his Master's of Science in Education with a concentration in Technology degree after receiving his teaching credential.

Students are the reason any adult should ever hold a position in education.

- Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva (A mother, teacher, and Member of the California State Assembly)

Billie Joe is running for Anaheim Union High School Board in Trustee Area 1 because we must not return to a "normal" that was pre-pandemic, when we have the opportunity to be transformational while making sure more students graduate on time and with the basic foundations to be successful in career, college, and life. Each student must be set up to have all of the options a great public education is meant to offer, regardless of circumstances. To achieve that, Wright says all educational partnerships must be rowing in the same direction with high expectations of the students and adults, supporting each other along the way. We can go further and achieve more when we support each other's areas of growth and build upon one another's strengths.
