COUNCIL MEMBER BRADFORD ON LEADERSHIP: C. O. "Brad" Bradford - Democrat Speaks to Aubrey R. Taylor about the importance of electing good leadership during times of crisis

COUNCIL MEMBER C. O. "BRAD" BRADFORD: "Good leadership is essential to the successful operation of any entity during a time of crisis, especially in a governmental organization that has the responsibility of protecting the public, such as the Harris County District Attorney's Office. That office requires a leader with strength, integrity and sound judgment. During a crisis, a leader's character is put to the ultimate test and their ability to lead must be an example for all who follow, uniting others to work for the greater good of all. A leader must be able to recognize the source of the crisis, ascertain available resources and then determine the most appropriate solution; then he or she must be strong and wise enough to efficiently and effectively implement that solution."  AUBREY R. TAYLOR:  C.O. Bradford was the Democratic nominee running for Harris County District Attorney back in the 2008 Presidential Election when he provided me with this statement. He lost his bid to become Harris County District Attorney to Republican Pat Lykos back in the 2008 Presidential Election; but shortly thereafter ran for the At-Large Position 4 seat on Houston's City Council and won.
