To the editor:

I am Tyron Riddick, School Board member representing the Suffolk Borough. I am a proud supporter of Delegate Clinton Jenkins in his bid for re-election.

Jenkins has proven to not only be a great community leader and advocate but has proven time and time again how much he cares about the kids here in the 76th District. Delegate Clinton Jenkins took the time to send official congratulations letters to the Suffolk Public Schools honor graduate students and graduates for the past two years. He took the time to provide special lunches for teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Because of Delegate Clinton Jenkins advocating for Suffolk Public Schools, we were given $42 million during the pandemic. He also put together a task force that consisted of Spectrum executives, Suffolk Public Schools administrators and the Suffolk Redevelopment & Housing Authority director to work on bringing WiFi to our rural communities to help our children. Delegate Jenkins has also worked tirelessly to connect Suffolk Public Schools to national stakeholders such as NASA.

I hope you will join me in supporting him for re-election.

Tyron D. Riddick
