Hi, I’m Brady Burke.
I’m running for Los Alamos County Council in November 2018.
I’m a computer geek and a small business owner; not real estate, not property development, but Medical Billing. I work at Los Alamos National Lab, but am not high enough up the food chain to even be considered a ‘Player’ in the relationship between LANL and Los Alamos County.
What does all that mean?
It means I’m an average Joe. Dollar-wise, I make more than some, less than others. I live in a quad and drive a car with 170K miles on it. I’m like you. I dream of winning the lottery, but, in the meantime, I have to watch my budget.
Why run for County Council?
I think we need to put the brakes on this runaway train. Like us, the County and Council need to budget their/our money. We need to bring some common sense and fiscal responsibility to how the County is run. We have to stop the tendency to spend money every time the Council meets or every time some County department shows up to make a presentation.
Is it just me that will make these changes?
No. It is you, the voter, and me. We all have to get involved. I’ll represent you as a County Councilor. I’ll tell you what we are up to. But, I need you to tell us what you want. We should meet at least once per month.
If there are Councilors that do not share this free exchange and willingness to own their role, they’ve got to go. There are more people in this town that want to make it better for all of us and we have to have them with us.
Let’s get together and take back our community.
