Democrats suffer major defeat in Bradley

Los demócratas sufren una gran derrota en Bradley

BRADLEY — Although the earth did not shake, there was a seismic event Tuesday in Bradley.

Long the home of Democratic Party political control, all four Bradley Democratic candidates — including two incumbents — were swept from office by the Progressive Citizens Party.

The Progressive Citizens Party will control the Bradley Village Board by a 5-1 margin come May 13, a fact unthinkable only a few years ago.

Mayor Bruce Adams will face a village board with Trustee Bob Redmond as the lone Democrat. Democrat Trustee Jerry Balthazor did not seek re-election.
