“After careful consideration, Brad Bradford is the candidate for Beaches-East York whom I am supporting for the position of councillor. Brad is someone who can unite the community rather than divide it by using populist tactics of exploiting divisive issues as vote bait. Brad has the experience and professional background to make informed decisions affecting the community. He is also someone who will carefully listen to both sides of an issue and find a common point of agreement to work from. Brad also believes in safe, healthy, and sustainable communities.
