Fellow District 98 Residents,
By now you have seen the recent attacks by one candidate for the NC House against another. While I do not normally speak up in a primary race, as a Cornelius native and your sitting Mayor Pro Tem, I know it has taken many years to help build the reputation of this wonderful region. We did it together through the hard work of many and have always resolved our differences in a civil manner. The way that John Bradford’s opponent has brought such negativism to this particular campaign is not acceptable.
I support John because I believe he is without question the best and most experienced candidate to represent our district in Raleigh. John has very successfully built a small business right here in Cornelius while serving with distinction as one of our Town Commissioners. He is supported by every Republican Cornelius Commissioner who has served with him. He is supported by our former Mayor in Cornelius and current State Senator Jeff Tarte, U.S. Congressman Robert Pittenger, Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest and a very long list of other public officials and business leaders.
I ask all of you to now support John. We must send a message to all engaging in negative campaigning that there is no place for this in North Mecklenburg and the Lake Norman Region. There is certainly no place for this in our beautiful Town where I have lived my entire life.
We must send a representative to Raleigh who will represent the great way we do things in our community. I ask you to stand up for principled conservative leadership. This is a critical election. Please stand up and vote for John Bradford on May 6th in the Republican Primary. That’s what I will be doing!
Commissioner and Mayor Pro Tem
Town of Cornelius
