Mayor wants to continue serving public

Friday, April 15, 2011

It has been my pleasure to serve the residents of Brazil as your Mayor.

My career began as a member of the City Council and then I was fortunate enough to be elected to represent you as your Mayor.

I have been married to John Bradshaw for 38 years. I have three children: Mary (Raymond), John (Valerie), and Allen.

I am the daughter of Mary L. Wright. I am proud to say I will be a first-time grandmother this year.

I have worked hard to make Brazil the best place to raise your family and do business. I would very much like to continue as Mayor of this great city and I would like your support.

Since taking office, we have started or completed several projects:

* Neighborhood Stabilization through a grant of $1,435,350,

* The Pinckley Street repaving project in conjunction with the county,

* The sidewalk project has been completed, and

* The water system upgrades to include an elevated tank at Interstate-70 and State Road 59 and at Craig Park with a new well and new booster and SCADA system.

We have had significant growth in the private market with the expansion of Morris Manufacturing and their pledge to retain their current employees and add at least another 40 jobs.

IVC Industrial Coatings opened their new world headquarters at the former MI Windows and Doors location and relocated approximately 50 jobs to Brazil from Indianapolis.

We have a list of streets to be paved as the money becomes available.

If re-elected, I will continue to be a full-time Mayor and will finish my entire term of office. I have enjoyed serving and helping the citizens of Brazil and will continue to have an open door policy in the Mayor's Office.

I am proud to serve as your Mayor and I ask for your support. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
