Cornelius Commissioner John R. Bradford Releases List of Endorsements for Re-Election

Cornelius, NC:  This afternoon Cornelius Commissioner John R. Bradford III released the following list of sixty one elected officials and community leaders who have publicly endorsed him to be re-elected to the Cornelius Town Commission. These leaders believe that John Bradford’s service on the board is vital to the health and growth of the Town of Cornelius.

“As the next Mayor of Cornelius I cannot stress enough the importance of having John’s leadership and experience on the board next year,” said Mayor Elect Travis. “His small business experience and knowledge of the town will help us continue to be one of the best places to live, work, and raise a family. We need John Bradford on the Cornelius Town Commission.”

Local businessman Joshua Dobi, expressed concern if Bradford were not to be re-elected. “Considering the amount of turnover we have had on the Commission this year I would be very worried if John Bradford were not to be re-elected to the Cornelius Town Commission. His service is vital to the health of our town government.”

Upon releasing the list and in response to negative campaigning by fringe group activists, Bradford expressed his appreciation of the overwhelming support he had received. “I am proud to serve Cornelius and humbled to have received this level of support. I will continue to work hard to preserve Cornelius as a crown jewel for North Carolina.Cornelius voters are a group of informed, logical and reasonable individuals.  Considering the current state of affairs within our US Government, local voters have little tolerance, if any, for negative campaign tactics.  Ironically, my outreach of support has never been stronger.  I have people asking how to make campaign contributions to ensure that I am “Re-Hired” and not “Fired.”  I always welcome passionate and healthy debate.  It is acceptable to agree to disagree which is why we call it an elected republic.  I am proud to say that I don’t cast my vote based on what will or will not get me re-elected.   I make the best decisions possible for the Town of Cornelius.  My common-sense approach these last two years as a Town Commissioner, as well as my long list of well known supporters, speaks for itself.”
