Dear Friends and Constituents,

As a (Retired) Senior Non-Commissioned Officer in the United States Army, I have managed projects at the Battalion, Brigade and Division levels. Over my career, I have held several duties that where called positions of trust. These positions required extensive background checks and approval from a General due to the nature and confidentiality of the duties involved.

My first duty station was Fort Bragg, North Carolina, as a member of the All-American 82nd Airborne Division. I understand my responsibilities inherent in this role. Superior service is what Collin County residents deserve and when you elect me, superior service is what Collin County residents will get. Teamwork, Duty and Selfless service were just a few of the leadership characteristics I will bring to precinct 4 as your Collin County Commissioner.

During my service in South Korea as part of the 2nd Infantry Division, I created and developed numerous policies and regulations that were distributed throughout the peninsula. These directives were Department of Defense driven and training oriented. The training affected 50,000-60,000 service and family members.

Having a Master’s in Business Administration along with my logistical background, will help me share this information with the residents and include them in the decision-making process. This thought process is so we can build bridges and create the transparency that Collin County residents have been asking for.   

My wife Carolyn is a  combat veteran, business owner and educator who is currently pursuing her PhD in Education/Organizational Leadership.

Education:

Masters Business Administration, Fort Bliss, Texas, 06/15/2009

Bachelors in Business Administration, Killeen, Texas, 05/15/2004  

Department of Defense Certifications:

Sexual Assault Response Coordinator 

Victim Advocate 

Equal Opportunity Leader 

Unit Prevention Leader 

Recruiter 

 

Thank you,

Byron Bradford

In a three-year financial forecast presented at a recent Plano City Council meeting, Budget Director Karen Rhodes-Whitley said existing property values are projected to increase 5 percent in 2018-19, 4 percent in 2019-20, and 4 percent in 2020-21. New growth is projected at $1.25 billion for 2018-19, another $750 million in 2019-20, and $500 million in 2020-21. Compared to the double-digit percent growth from the past two years, this year’s growth has noticeably slowed to about 8 percent, Daffin said.

Starting Tuesday afternoon, Zuckerberg appears for nationally-televised questioning before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce, Science and Transportation committees.

On Wednesday, the showdown continues, as Zuckerberg is slated to appear for round two before the lawmakers of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Ahead of the hearing, Zuckerberg posted on Facebook: "In an hour I’m going to testify in front of the Senate about how Facebook needs to take a broader view of our responsibility -- not just to build tools, but to make sure those tools are used for good."

Starbucks will be closing its stores and corporate offices on May 29 for company-wide racial bias training. The announcement comes in response to public protests and calls to boycott the coffee chain after the arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia store last week. The store manager called 911 when the men refused to leave after trying to use the store's restroom without making a purchase.

After the financial crisis of 2008, many economists weren't very worried about inflation. The bigger fear was deflation.
