During early voting and on election day, Nov. 6, we have an opportunity to elect a strong leader to represent District E on the Harford County Council, Bridgette Johnson is that leader. I have known Bridgette for over 10 years and have worked closely with her through the Harford County Office of Economic Development on issues affecting the City of Aberdeen during the 8 years I served as Mayor. Bridgette is an Army veteran and a graduate of the Harford Leadership Academy.
I have always known Bridgette to work in the field of economic development in our business community as well as our residential community. She is interested in land-use, zoning, transportation and mixed-use development projects. Bridgette is very interested in working with Aberdeen in redeveloping the area around the Aberdeen Train Station and helping to create a true Main Street atmosphere in our downtown.
Bridgette lives in our community and is very interested and involved in what goes on in Aberdeen and District E. She has served on the Harford County Boys and Girls Club Board of Directors. I know that she will be helpful in working with the county to secure funding for a permanent Aberdeen Parks and Recreation Facility. Bridgette is one of the Champions needed on the Route 40 corridor.
Bridgette has the tenacity, charisma and knowledge of Harford County District E to serve us well. Bridgette has a vision and fresh ideas for our area, but above all she listens and will work to find solutions to issues. For all these reasons I fully endorse and support Bridgette Johnson for Harford County Council, District E.
