BREAKING NEWS: Braxton announces candidacy for city council
February 5, 2010
Williamsburg City Council member Bobby Braxton has officially declared his candidacy for reelection.
“I feel great at the way things turned out,” Braxton said. “[By that] I mean the city, William and Mary, Colonial Williamsburg, all of it.”
Braxton had been cryptic in announcing whether or not he would be seeking reelection until now.
While it was known that he had been circulating the necessary petitions to get his name on the ballot, he declined to officially announce his candidacy.
“There were things I wanted to get done before I announced, and I got them done. It’s just like any other project,” Braxton said.
Braxton was born and raised in Williamsburg and attended Hampton University before returning to Williamsburg. He was elected to his first term on the council in 2006.
