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

Members of Congress and immigration activists blocked the entrance to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection headquarters Wednesday, protesting the Trump administration's policy of separating families at the border.

Ten House members, including Reps. Judy Chu, D-Calif., Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., John Lewis, D-Ga., Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., and Luis V. Gutierrez, D-Ill., wore white armbands to signify their intention to be arrested in an act of civil disobedience.

The National Rifle Association has championed the idea of “a good guy with a gun,” but no firearms will be allowed when Vice President Pence speaks at its annual meeting — sparking criticism from Parkland, Fla., students, who say schools should be afforded the same protection.

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.

Trump added that his administration was "fighting very diligently" to free three Americans currently held by North Korea. He said that the U.S. was "having a good dialogue" with Pyongyang about the issue.
