Candidate profile: Brady A. Campbell, Charleston City Council, Ward 19

Brady A. Campbell (R)

Charleston

Education: WVU Davis College, B.S.; WVU College of Engineering, M.S. Industrial Management and Safety Engineering; WVU College of Law, J.D.

Occupation: Commercial insurance agent/attorney/small business owner

Gazette Opinion:

Q: Do you support evidence-based programs to protect public health during the drug abuse crisis?

A: I support a comprehensive program that protects the city from disease outbreaks which could bankrupt our city. A successful and supported program would need to have ideal location, educational components, and restrictions in order to be acceptable.

Q: Would you support expanding the bike pathway along Kanawha Boulevard?

A: Absolutely. Expanding the bike path beautifies our city and promotes a healthy lifestyle and brings people into the heart of the city. Further, expanding bike routes throughout the city promotes alternative transportation and reduces our resident's environmental impact. 

Daily Mail Opinion:

Q: How should the city address the issue of criminal transient individuals?

A: Community policing to address specific areas of criminality will begin to eliminate areas where criminal transient individuals harass residents. Additionally, a commitment and pursuit to remove dilapidated structures will eliminate places where transient individuals can occupy and increase the opportunity for developers to expand new housing.

Q: Has the city of Charleston become a better or worse place to live in the past five years? How so?

A: The city has taken steps to combat problems presented by criminal transients, drug abuse and an exodus of jobs. Unfortunately the efforts haven't gotten sufficient results. Although the city created programs such as the police hybrid unit and the family reunification plan, progress lacks in recruiting new businesses and young professionals.
