Brady Pendleton is running for mayor in the 2014 City Countil election.
What is your current occupation?
Attorney, Law Offices of Brady L. Pendleton
If applicable, what positions on council have you held before?
Elected in 2012 to serve on Stephenville City Council, Place 5
What has motivated you to be involved in city government?
First and foremost I believe everyone has a civic duty to be involved in some organization that allows them to serve their community. Growing up in Stephenville, I was provided with a great support system that has allowed me to succeed. I believe I have a tremendous debt to pay back and this is only one of many ways I attempt to do that.
What qualifies you to hold this position?
I have lived in Stephenville almost my entire life, but yet I have been blessed with tremendous opportunities that have broadened my education a life experiences. Going back to my days as a leader in the FFA, to serving as Student Body President at TSU, and now serving on the City Council, I have always been the type of person to fix problems, not create them. I own a small business, raise a family, and have strong roots in our community. I want only the best for Stephenville today, and hope for a even better future for my children.
What are your goals upon being elected?
First and foremost we have to get the politics and personalities out of the council chambers and city hall, and work on unifying our community. Until we accomplish this, our community will continue to suffer from great stagnation. We have to be dedicated to providing the highest quality of services we can to our citizens at the most affordable price. It is essential that we continue to provide quality of life services like parks, libraries, senior citizen centers, and strive to make it easy to do business in Stephenville. We need to embrace the growth of Tarleton and work on serving the needs of its students.
Why would/should a Stephenville resident want to vote for you?
By voting for me you are getting a Mayor who owes no favors and whose only interest is to do what is best for Stephenville and our citizens. Every day I go to work and fight for people’s rights and I promise to the same for each and every citizen. My office and home is always open and my schedule is never too busy to handle any issue that might arise. I will always give you an honest, straight forward answer, not one that aims to please my current audience. Lastly, I will get results that re-grease the wheels of progress and move our city forward.
As a more personal question, what do you find yourself doing in your spare time?
My family is always number one. I have a 5 year old son and a new one on the way in August. Needless to say my life is busy raising a family. When I am not at work or with family, I am usually dedicating my time to another civic group in our community, involved with a group or an event on campus, or tending to livestock. Every now and then I get to play golf.
