LOUDON COUNTY MAYOR
Re-Elect Rollen "Buddy" Bradshaw
Hello, my name is Buddy Bradshaw and it has been my distinct pleasure to serve you as the Mayor of Loudon County for the last four years. I am a lifelong resident of Loudon County and want to continue to lead Loudon County into a prosperous future.
I have been happily married to my wife Elizabeth for 18 years and have three children: Ashley-24, Delan-17 and Dane-4. Elizabeth is the Customer Service Director for Loudon Utilities and Ashley is a 3rd Grade teacher at Eaton Elementary School. Delan is a Sophomore at Loudon High School and Dane is in Pre-K at Philadelphia Elementary. I have spent more than twenty-five years investing in the future of our county by volunteering with multiple civic and youth organizations. I was an employee of TRW/Koyo for more than 13 years, and worked as a police officer for Loudon Police Department from 2004 until taking office in 2014 but still maintain reserve status with the department. I hold an Associates Degree in the Science of Teaching from Roane State Community College, making the Dean's List every semester that I qualified. I serve on the Board for the Loudon County Habitat for Humanity, a member of the Loudon Lions Club and am a member of the Sons of the American Legion Ivo Sanders Post 120. I am a firm and avid supporter of our veterans.
I have had the pleasure of leading Loudon County into an unprecedented era of growth and prosperity. I want to continue to build and grow the county, while still maintaining the quaint charm that makes us a destination for business and families looking to relocate. In my roles as Chairman for the Loudon County Economic Development Agency and former vice-chair and current chair of the Tellico Reservoir Development Agency, I have played a significant part in doing just that.
Success starts with jobs and since I have been in office we have successfully pursued and brought in more than 1,000 new jobs in either new business or expansions of current business and industry and more than $70,000,000 in capital investment has been inserted into the Loudon County economy and I think we've got room for more. Also, no new taxes!
I vow to continue to serve the citizens of Loudon County to the best of my ability. I have one goal every day: Make Loudon County better! My door is always open and county government will continue to be transparent. I will work with our county commission and our school board to insure we provide the best living environment we can achieve.
I want you to vote Bradshaw for Loudon County Mayor on May 1, 2018. Thank you and God Bless.
