Connor will raise ethics issue in Sussex

September 2, 2014

I have known Brad Connor for a long time and before he became an elected official. I remember when his father owned Connor Broadcasting which consisted of four radio stations serving all the small towns in western Sussex County and beyond. Brad was 15 years old when he first became the station's disc jockey. He quickly moved into sales and management. Brad has spent a lifetime as a small businessman and eventually an elected official. He and his family have also over the years given back to this county and its small towns.

Over the lifetime of the Connor Broadcasting Company, they regularly donated back and raised money for nonprofits and community groups. I remember the first Laurel Fourth of July parade when Brad was personally broadcasting the parade from the site all the way through the parade. Connor also worked with and raised money for several of the local chambers of commerce, including Millsboro, Selbyville, Bethany, Fenwick, Laurel and Seaford. There were others, like the Boys & Girls Clubs in Seaford, Leukemia Foundation, United Way and Salvation Army.

Brad Connor has lived an ethical life through his own businesses and his small government work. I plan to vote for him Sept. 9, so that he can raise the ethics of the Sussex County Council and its appointed boards. We cannot miss this opportunity to bring our county into the sunlight.
