Spartanburg Herald-Journal: Boiling Springs attorney to run for Spartanburg County Council

From the Herald-Journal:

A Boiling Springs attorney announced his run for Spartanburg County Council on Thursday.

Justin Bradley will face off against District 2 incumbent O’Neal Mintz in the Republican primary.

Bradley is an attorney for a consumer financial services company. He is a graduate of Boiling Springs High School, University of South Carolina Upstate and USC School of Law.

In college, Bradley was involved in local politics through the College Republicans group and Spartanburg Young Republicans. He was a county party precinct delegate and a delegate to the S.C. GOP Convention in 2009.

Bradley previously worked as a law clerk in the S.C. Governor’s Policy Office on budget and education issues.

“I am running because, as a new father and someone who grew up in the Boiling Springs community, I care deeply about the future of our county,” Bradley said in a written statement. “I believe the voters of District 2 deserve a conservative leader who will bring new vision and new ideas to county council.”

Bradley said he wants to protect taxpayer resources by prioritizing spending on core government services and immediately reduce the $25 road fee and phase it out over time. As a councilman, Bradley said he would focus on long-term economic growth and job creation and look for ways to increase accountability and transparency on the council.

The Bradley campaign will kick off with an event at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Boiling Springs Community Park Event Center.

Bradley’s father is a copy editor in the Herald Journal newsroom.
