WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL)— The race for Texas’ 13th Congressional District could soon grow larger as a former WFISD school board president has launched an exploratory committee for a potential run.
Trey Sralla confirmed the committee to our newsroom this morning.
Sralla is a Wichita Falls native and graduated from Hirschi High School and then MSU.
He served on the WFISD school board for more than a decade.
Sralla, who represented place five, stepped down as school board president in May 2016.
He is also the co-owner of Eddie Hills Fun Cycles in Wichita Falls.
Sralla feels it’s important for the 13th congressional district seat to be occupied by someone local.
“It’s a district that’s very large geographically so you have somebody on the very far west of the district, you want to make sure that Sheppard Air Force Base is going to be a priority,” Sralla said.
Sralla has until Dec. 6, 2019, to make a decision on whether or not he will run.
