If at first you don’t succeed, you may want to follow Jess Bradfield’s lead. Bradfield lost in his bid to win a Logan Municipal Council seat four years ago. But on Tuesday he ended up with 33% of the vote which qualified him for one of the two open positions.
Bradfield admits he worked very hard as did his great campaign staff and, in fact, he said at one point they had walked over 500 miles and ended up with worn out shoes and blistered feet.
One of his top priorities once he is in office is to help Logan neighborhoods.
“The neighborhood council, reinstating it in an agile manner,” Bradvield explains, “bringing it back so it’s not a bureaucracy, getting it some funding so that it can go around and help houses and elderly people who need to fix up their houses, young couples who can’t afford it, that kind of thing.”
“Making sure that it’s operating correctly, that’s what my first goal is going to be.”
Bradfield says economic development is also extremely important. In addition to Bradfield, Amy Anderson was elected to the municipal council.
