CJ Bright is working for reelection as the third district supervisor of Union County. He was elected as a Republican during the 2019 election cycle. He has appreciated the opportunity afforded to him by the voters of the third district and would welcome the opportunity to continue to serve his constituents and build upon the progress during the current term.

There have been many unusual challenges to be navigated by local government during the past term, but they were met head on and efficiently handled with little disruption to the way of life in our great county. A few achievements during the current term have been unprecedented state and federal funding secured for local projects such as infrastructure improvements, solid waste collection equipment, courthouse renovations, road repair and fire protection equipment. We also have seen state leading employment rates and economic and industrial development growth, new emergency services dispatch center and equipment, as well as increased wages for law enforcement and all county personnel while creating no local tax increases.

CJ Bright was born in Union County to parents Roy and Melanie Bright. After graduating with honors from New Albany High School he attended Northeast Mississippi Community College and received an associate degree in accounting while participating in the honors program. While pursuing his education, CJ married his wife Abby and started his first business venture. Upon completion of his studies at Northeast he enrolled at Blue Mountain Christian University where he completed his education obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business administration and accounting.

CJ and Abby make their home on a small farm in the North Haven community and are proud parents to Ray(19), AnnieBine(12), and Heidi(5).  The children are involved in farm operations, as well as participating in athletics and other outdoor activities. They are active members of First Methodist Church in New Albany where they serve in lay capacities.

CJ feels that his education and work background, as well as his experience as former Board President and  current supervisor, makes him the ideal person to continue serving the constituents of the third district.  As a small business owner, commercial and residential building contractor, and commercial cattle producer, Bright has first hand knowledge of the opportunities and challenges of achieving success in the business world.  Additionally, his service as a congregational volunteer, former Mainstreet board member, and PUL board member highlight his strong connection to the community at large.

CJ Bright would like to ask for your continued support and consideration when casting your Republican ballot in the Tuesday August 8th primary.
