Joshua Bradley is running to give voice to the workers of Raleigh. Property speculation and financial opportunism have driven housing and rent prices beyond reasonable limits, while pressure from well-financed pro-business and anti-tax forces drive down wages and benefits. 

The current City Council fully supports allowing developers and speculators to determine what our city will look like and who can afford to reside in its neighborhoods and communities. Development of affordable housing, including limits on what constitutes reasonable rents, have taken a back seat to failed planning models that generate profits for a few while displacing renters and long-time residents. The people deserve someone who will resist the rising costs of residing in their city.

At the same time, the nationwide trend to police enforcement and ICE predation that aims mainly at immigrants, the poor and working class needs to be checked in Raleigh by citizen-led police accountability and oversight committees. Joshua Bradley will provide effective leadership that considers the economic well-being of workers in Raleigh.
