Hello & Welcome
I'm Anthony Bradford
WHERE I COME FROM
I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi back in 1963. I grew up there until 1976 when my family moved to Stout Street in the Brightmoor neighborhood. I attended Harding Middle School and Redford High School. I was blessed to have some great teachers who inspired me to get involved in the things I wanted to see changed. So I did.
I was elected block club President when I was 17 years old. That same year I
also started coaching in the PAL Little League Baseball program at Stoepel Park.
I attended Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, Alabama. While there I was elected as the Freshmen Class President and my sophomore year I served as a Student Senator. I was honored to be voted an Outstanding Young Man of America in both 1983 and 1984.
When I came back home I worked for Councilmember Clyde Cleveland, and then I served as a Legislative Aide for the Michigan State House of Representatives. I was subsequently hired to be the Chief of Staff for the late State Senator Burton Leland. Senator Leland became a mentor and ultimately one of my best friends over the many years I served the people in the District. I learned many things from him, but most importantly I learned how to get things done for people.
Currently, I serve as the Director of Constituent Services for the Detroit City Council’s District 7. I enjoy my work, helping the good people of our community get the services they expect and deserve. Whether it’s help with a water bill issue or getting potholes repaired, because helping people is my passion.
Now one thing I can say for sure is this, none of these things would be possible without the most important thing in my life, Family! I'm married to my lovely wife Kennyetta, and between us we have 9 wonderful children, Brandon, Shaun, LaParish, Ashley, Jack, Jaila, De’Nija, DaiShon and Joseph.
I enjoy spending time with my family first and foremost, when I have free time. I love our Detroit sports teams, playing spades, bid whist, and dominoes with friends. I also love to get out the grill in the summertime and cook some mean southern barbecue!
For right now, I just want everyone to Stay Home & Stay Safe. But when the pandemic ends, and it will end, there are structural and systemic changes that we can and must make! The Republicans in Lansing and Washington will be doing all they can to deny our votes. We must stand up together with one voice, and say NO! We’ve tried quiet diplomacy, we’ve tried to shout from the mountaintops…we’ve tried it all. Now, it’s TIME TO FIGHT…FOR THE PEOPLE!
MY PERSONAL LIFE
It's Time To Fight For The People
To run a progressive campaign. Highlighting the issues that affect Detroiters most, particularly issues of concern to our senior citizens. It's time to fight for our seniors, it's time to fight for our neighborhoods, it's time to fight for our families.
