Darlene Bradley’s Promises Kept is a wildly long list. One that we’ve included for your perusal at the bottom of this post, but if you want the short version: Trust me, Bradley will go down as Davenport’s best mayor in history.
She’s a breath of sunshine with major accomplishments over her militaristic opponent, Abel Gonzalez, who plans to bring back the old guard. Yeah, that one, the one that left Davenport in major disrepair.
I’ve worked with Abel and, while a nice young chap, he can wind a committee through so much red tape that nothing gets accomplished. That’s why I affectionately call him Sir Talk-a-lot. If Abel was running for commissioner, I’d be on his side, but not as mayor. Abel needs more, lots more, experience.
Let’s give Bradley one more year. Maybe Davenport can come up with a better opponent in that time.
