INDEPENDENCE — Brian Walls of Mouth of Wilson has announced his candidacy for the Wilson District seat on the Grayson County School Board.
In a news release, Walls said, “I have seen how our children have been left out of so many opportunities, and it breaks my heart to see our children’s future in jeopardy. I am running to be a voice for the people of the Wilson District.
“I believe that, together, we can provide a positive future full of every opportunity available for our children without costing taxpayers a fortune.
“I believe the chief is only as good as his Indians.”
In the news release, Walls pledged “to tell the truth and be honest, good or bad. Second, I promise to do my best to pray and seek God for the answer to any and all decisions.”
Walls has worked for the Virginia Department of Corrections for the past 11.5 years as a correctional officer and is now grievance coordinator/ombudsman for the new River North Correctional Center in Independence.
His wife, Emma, works at Ashe Memorial Hospital. Their daughter, Emily, is a third grader at Grayson Highlands School.
