In the fall election for Johns Creek City Council Post 3, I am endorsing John Bradberry.
I have gotten to know John over the last 3 years working with John as a director for the Johns Creek Community Association, assisting John with Preserve Johns Creek, as well as personally.
From the first time we had a chance to work together, John and I have discussed issues within Johns Creek relentlessly. Beginning with traffic issues, we have discussed nearly every issues that Johns Creek is facing and the opportunities that they present.
When there was an issue at Niblick Road@ Barnwell Road, for instance, and the conversations about installing a traffic circle or a traffic light, John and I drove out to the intersection to look for ourselves and see exactly what the issues were, and if there were any other solutions.
Indeed, we saw the problem immediately. We were actually surprised that City Staff had not gone to the location and saw the same addressable issues we saw:
- Line of site blocked by encroaching growth along the right of way from the curve southbound on Barnwell Road to Niblick
- Shrubbery planted at the entrance to the neighborhood blocking the line of site from Niblick northbound on Barnwell Road
And, as we now all know the City finally sent crews out there and addressed these issues, and instead of spending millions for a solution, the City did what it was responsible for in the first place, and safer conditions resulted.
Macedonia Cemetery/ Fairway Package Billboard
John and I went to the location before the billboard was approved by the City. Dismayed that the cemetery was the responsibility of the City and in such poor shape, with two homeless encampments in the woods, John raised awareness, searched for more information on the cemetery, and pushed preservation via Preserve Johns Creek.
Today, Johns Creek is maintaining the cemetery, although there is much to do to provide the sort of historical preservation this location deserves. As a Council Member, I know Bradberry will work to preserve this and other historical locations within Johns Creek.
Finally, John and I have discussed issues with traffic at more intersections than I can recall. John wants to get our traffic congestion under control. He understands the negative impact of traffic lights, and that they more we install, the more issues we will have. We have stood at intersections and watched the light sequences and seen the needless delays drivers face each and every day. One of the worst: State Bridge Road between the High School and the Elementary School.
This is the type of forward thinking and efforts we need on the Johns Creek City Council. If John Bradberry was doing all of this before he decided to run for City Council, you can certainly expect him to do it after we elect him.
John Bradberry will ask the right questions, challenge the City Staff for better solutions and will be listening and looking out for you.
That’s why I am more than happy to support Johns Bradberry for Johns Creek City Council Post 3.
