Bradfield wants to see Logan do more to grow the economy

Some candidates running for Logan mayor and city council say the city is in a great financial situation. But one council candidate, Jess Bradfield, says Logan could do much more to grow the economy.

On <a href=”″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday</a>, Badfield said he feels the city needs a number of things. First, he said, it needs council members with more vision.

“Secondly, we need to market the city and do a better job of recruiting businesses that employ a wide array of labor,” Bradfield exclaimed. “I’m not just talking about Walmarts. We don’t need any more of that.

“In fact, I think we need some businesses to come in and compete with that, something like Costco. We actually have three Walmarts if you think about it: two Walmarts and then one Sam’s Club.”

Bradfield, who is an enrollment officer with Western Governors University, said Logan needs to recruit more businesses like Yesco and Thermal-Fisher. To make Logan more business-friendly, Bradfield said Logan could eliminate annual licensing fees and find more reasonable ways to improve parking and congestion.
