I support both our police and fire departments and will rigorously defend their ability to do their job of protecting you.
Building Greater Community
As your Mayor I am excited to continue the process of making Johns Creek a great city.
I pledge to you that I will be a Mayor for all of Johns Creek. We have a beautiful, diverse and efficient community. I want to embrace that strength and make Johns Creek even better as we move Forward Together!
The safety and security of Johns Creek residents will be THE top priority in a Bradberry administration. I support both our police and fire departments and will rigorously defend their ability to do their job of protecting you. I am proud of both of these departments and how they represent the city and look for this pursuit of excellence to continue moving forward.
As your Mayor I am excited to continue the process of making Johns Creek a great city. Physically, I want to build a network of sidewalks and trails to create connectivity between neighborhoods and parks; Socially, I want to see us hosting more cultural diverse events that engage more of our community held in locations throughout the city; Economically. I’d like to redevelop some of our dated shopping centers to create a more experiential retail experience. And, the major building block for greater community is the Town Center which will create a greater sense of place and identity offering space for us to gather for major events and socializing as a community.
The lifeblood of our community is the family unit and to that end I am committed to having the best parks and recreation system in Georgia for like-size cities. This includes recreational fields for baseball and softball, hiking trails and most importantly greenspace that not only offers an enjoyable environment, it offers outstanding aesthetics for other cities to envy.
As we all know Johns Creek has some of the best school’s not only in the state of Georgia but in the nation as well. The academic successes of our high school’s in particular have made Johns Creek a target for those home owners wanting the best education for their children. My commitment to education is paramount as it is a critical need factor for our students going forward as adults.
As a citizen myself, we all have household and business financial obligations that we need to adhere to. You need to keep as much of your money as possible and Johns Creek needs to administer taxation that allows for proper and efficient Johns Creek city administration; no more, no less.
It’s critically important that we make decisions about spending the Johns Creek budget on projects and initiatives that will better the city and its citizens as a whole. This means embracing those items that can provide a return on investment while at the same time turning down projects that are nice to have but don’t add to the overall Johns Creek equation.
As a small business owner myself, I am aware of the rigors and pitfalls that can befall a small business owner as they navigate the permits and legal landscape of doing business in Johns Creek. My commitment is to do a rigorous analysis of the processes annually to identify unnecessary processes that have surfaced over time and eliminate them.
As we are a close, tight-knit community, roads and bridges are critical. I think everyone has noticed the increase of road crews over the last year fixing roads and infrastructure to take advantage of the lower traffic counts due to the pandemic. These improvements will enhance the Johns Creek experience and we will strive in a balanced way to minimally disrupt the community.
I have enjoyed my time on the Johns Creek council serving two terms representing my district and my city. This time as a council member has been a critical learning period and can’t imagine running for mayor or being mayor without the knowledge of the upfront city mechanics and the behind the scene policies that has eliminated the learning curve of how to make John’s Creek operate efficiently and effectively.
As we all know, this country is divided and very likely this city is similarly divided. Initiating policies that benefit a particular ideology is a non-starter in a Bradberry administration. All initiatives, budgets and processes going forward will be approved after going through a cost/benefit process that increases the value proposition of government to Johns Creek residents.
Johns Creek government has an open door policy that I am proud of and I pledge to maintain that going forward as well. There are no back room deals, no secret agreements and no quid pro quo arrangements. Everything will be out front and above board.
Lastly, I pledge to you that I will be a Mayor for all of Johns Creek. We have a beautiful, diverse and efficient community structure and I want to embrace that strength and make Johns Creek even better as we move Forward Together!
Johns Creek is primarily a bedroom community with a significant small business representation and it’s important that remains a constant. Any building of townhomes and apartments that would cater to the transient market needs to be limited as I prefer to encourage the focus on family units that would maintain and enhance the value of Johns Creek properties.
