Ward 3 candidate eager to work for city

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Mark Bedwell
My name is Mark Bedwell.

I am running for Brazil City Council in Ward 3.

I am a hard-working husband and father of five children.

I have been married to Gretta (Adams) Bedwell for 22 years. We have lived in this community for 21 years, where we have raised our children. We are a Christian family with a good moral background.

Although I have no prior political experience, many hard-working members of this community feel as though I would be a good choice for City Council.

I have no problems with rolling my sleeves up and getting to work. I have no problems with working with others to resolve any situation. I have the common sense to call on others when wisdom and experience are required.

I will not take this office to become a rubber stamp for any reason. I have no problems with addressing any issue, even if it means being "politically incorrect."

My top priority will be the community as a whole. And I will stand up and fight to better the Brazil community.

I have served in the United States Marine Corps. I have been accountable for multi-millions of dollars in food distribution. I have been accountable for multi-millions of dollars of motor vehicles, including motorcycles, and the safety of their owners and passengers. I am currently employed part-time and own a growing motorcycle repair business.

Change the politics in Brazil. I would consider it an honor and a privilege to serve this community and its citizens.
