Ben Griggs

Richland School Board Position 2



Hello There!

I’m Ben Griggs, husband and father of five. I’m passionate about the education that my children and all students in the Richland School District receive. Children are our future, and our district needs leadership focused on their success.

Through my years of experience as a professional engineer and project manager, I have become skilled at objectively analyzing information, managing multi-million dollar budgets, effectively collaborating with people from all walks of life, critically listening to differing opinions, overseeing complex projects, and utilizing data and information to develop elegant solutions to difficult problems. My experience makes me uniquely qualified to assist our district in meeting the needs of all students better than ever.

 I will use my education, experience, and passion to work with students, families, teachers, and administrators to build a successful future for our children.

Bradley Klippert
Washington State Representative

I am putting forth my recommendation for Ben Griggs for Richland School Board. As a Washington State Representative, I understand the value of experience in public service; but there comes a time when change needs to happen. Ben Griggs will offer a fresh, new perspective on the school board along with bringing knowledge in managing large budgets and projects. Ben also brings the life skills of working with youth. Not only does he have children in the Richland School District, he has years of experience working in youth programs and youth sports. Ben recognizes the diversity of the youth in our school system and believes that traditional schooling doesn’t fit everyone. Ben believes that families need to be offered choices in their children’s education. I believe that Ben will work hard to provide our students with the options and tools they need to successfully obtain a very positive well-rounded education that will prepare them to compete and thrive in a world economy. Please join me in supporting Ben Griggs for Richland School Board.

Students First

Putting students first is my top priority. While it’s a simple idea, it can be more difficult to put into practice. I am committed to putting students first by being willing to look at new ideas, and by working with families, students, and educators to provide the best educational opportunities possible for our diverse community.
