Bradshaw seeing re-election
Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Jim Bradshaw has been active in the growth and activities in Mt. Juliet for many years.  Jim states, “I have been a public servant and city commissioner for 17.5 years.  I love my job and I am dedicated to seeing Mt. Juliet citizens have the best quality of life.”

Jim grew up in Wilson County and has seen multiple changes throughout the years.  “It is amazing!  I remember our first traffic light at the Mt. Juliet Road and Lebanon Road intersection and Mt. Juliet Road being a two lane road.  I have seen positive growth the last several years and it has been a challenge to keep it in balance with our growing infrastructure.”  Jim continues, “We now have the pleasures of shopping in Mt. Juliet and not having to drive to the borders of our city.  We have achieved more job opportunities, convenience and an improved tax base for city services.”  Jim states, “In the next four years, I want to see more recreation and family-oriented choices for us to spend leisure time together.  I want to strive for us to keep that small town charm, keep safety as a major focus, as well as to continue a major endeavor to plan for our city’s growth and transportation plan.  We as city commissioners, staff and planning commission must make some very guided decisions in the management of growth in our area.”  Jim says, “I am very concerned with the boom of multi-family and proposed multi-family units in the area south of Interstate 40 which is City District 4.”

Jim Bradshaw is commissioner of the city.  He is active in many events.  He is the commissioner you see at musicals, park events, ballgames, talent shows and numerous events held in Mt. Juliet.  Jim is now serving in his 5th year as a volunteer for Mt. Juliet Relay For Life committee (American Cancer Society); he was the sponsor and supporter for Mt. Juliet’s Farmers Market (now open in its 7th year); he supported and voted for Music City Train service; has served on Big Brothers committee; has served on the Board for Mt. Juliet Senior Center and Mt. Juliet Special Events committee.

Mt. Juliet is among the highest ranking cities in the state of Tennessee for safety and is one of the fastest growing cities in the state.  Mt. Juliet is consistently named one of the most business friendly communities.  Mt. Juliet has also been voted Most Playful City (Parks), and we have one of the lowest city property taxes as well.

I want to continue working for you.  (I listen to the people!)  I am dedicated to you.  Let’s keep a positive thing going.  Re-elect Jim Bradshaw, City Commissioner District 4.
