ARGO — Mayor Betty Bradley has decided to run for a second term in Argo.
“It has been my honor and privilege to serve as mayor for the past four years and would like to continue to do all I can for our city,” said Bradley. “I will continue to work hard to earn the support of our citizens.”
Bradley has been a resident of Argo for 22 years, and if given an opportunity to serve a second term, she vows to do so with the city’s best interest in mind.
“My commitment is to serve the citizens of Argo and contribute to its growth and prosperity,” Bradley continued. “I support public safety, encourage the continued improvements of city infrastructure, support marketing efforts of the Broadband project and encourage new economic development while supporting our local businesses. I would like to work on improving communication between the city administration and the citizens of Argo.”
Bradley, who has a business administration degree from UAB, spent four years serving on the Argo City Council before taking her post as mayor in 2016. She currently serves on the League of Municipalities, State and Federal Legislative Committee, Argo Community Food Bank, Christmas for Kids Committee, and volunteers at St. Vincent’s Hospital.
She believes in pushing for growth in Argo, and doing so in a responsible fashion.
“I don’t believe in spending money we don’t have,” said Bradley. “I believe in responsible growth. I believe citizens should be involved in making decisions that affect their community. I believe in a vision to look ahead to what we can become.”
Bradley believes there is work to be done in Argo and hopes to finish what she started four years ago.
“I am aware of the needs of the community, the resources available and above all, the public concerns that face our city,” said Bradley. “We have made great strides in Argo. I want to try and continue to move our city forward.”
