DeWitt, Candidate for BCISD School Board Trustee Pos 3


Hello my name is John DeWitt and I am announcing my candidacy for Bay City ISD School Board Trustee Position 3. I am doing this because I love Bay City. Almost 30 years ago my family moved here to Bay City and the town embraced our family with open arms. Bay City has been good to me and my family.  This is where I learned the phrase brought in by Former Athletic Director Coach Warren Trahan “Blackcat Fight Never Dies” This is where I met my wife of 19 years, and where we raise our children who attend BCISD schools. This is where we volunteer our time with our church, different charitable organizations and the different sports clubs that I coach my children in. I am vested in this community and especially our school district. Now comes the time where we can all be part of the problem or be part of the solution. I choose along with many others to be the part of that solution. We may all have different opinions but instead of being bitter, let’s work to get better. I feel we should all have one goal and that is making our schools and our district SAFER and better, one family at a time because we are all in this together! I want to give our teachers, students and administration the support they need in order to be the best! Because we are Blackcats! We are Bay City! And we are the best! We may not be where we want to be (yet) but with everyone involved in the process, we will get there and make this the best district in the state and I believe the nation. Why not? What’s holding us back? Genesis 11:6 says "The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! Early voting starts on April 22 at City Hall. I appreciate your support, prayers and vote on May 4, 2019.
