"IT'S TIME TO PUT OUR PRIORITIES IN ORDER AND MAKE A GREAT STATE EVEN GREATER."

 

Representative John R. Bradford, III, NC House District 98

In this most recent legislative session Rep. Bradford secured over $25M in specific project funding for the three towns in District 98 and Mecklenburg County.

 

Cornelius:

  • $2.5M for the Cain Center for the Arts.

  • $500K for Smithville Revitalization (historic black community.)

 

Davidson:

  • $500K for pedestrian and sidewalk safety (Note: Davidson’s Town budget is only $13M so this is a significant amount of money for the town.)

  • $100K for Davidson Community Players.

 

Huntersville:

  • $12M in funding to backfill ARPA funds that the feds did not give them due to a formula change so I fought to get the gap funding in the budget.

Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities-Related:

  • $1.15M for Aspire Trade High School in Huntersville which focused on students that are on the autism spectrum disorder.

  • Secured recurring budget funding for 5 new magistrates in Mecklenburg County; specifically for North Mecklenburg by having a magistrate in Huntersville.

 

Representative Bradford believes in common sense issues and policies, such as, but not limited to:

 

  • Champion of tax reform to allow working families to keep more money.

  • Reform NC regulations to help businesses solve the supply-chain issues that are helping to drive inflationary costs for consumers.

  • Supported legislation to keep our schools safe with over $400M in funding for safety improvements.

  • Establish a task force of mental health care providers to retool state services to allow for early detection and treatment of at-risk children.

Representative John Bradford, has all the right priorities for ALL of us.
