Welcome one and all!

I am running for the Raleigh City Council seat of At Large in 2019 and would love your support. Please browse through the navigation bar above to learn about me, my platform, see news, updates, events, as well as see my live Twitter and Facebook feed.

Stay informed about how I plan to be the voice that says "Yes!" while the current Raleigh City Council says "No!" From wanting Raleigh to be fun and vibrant, such as riding scooters throughout the city or promoting entrepreneurs, to opposing unnecessarily long zoning hearing that costs everyone money... Let's usher in a Raleigh City Council that is more in touch with its citizens, first responders, is pro-business, and will actually be representatives.

Vote Bledsoe in 2019!

Campaign Kickoff Event

Bledsoe For Raleigh City Council Campaign Kickoff
Raleigh needs new leadership and representatives. As a combat veteran with over a decade in the Army, I feel that I can be that new representative. Come out to the MLK Memorial Gardens on March 23rd and show your support for a candidate that cares about Raleigh, wants it to grow, & someone who plans for our future.

If you want Raleigh to have:
* ADUs
* Short Term Rentals (AirBnB)
* Bike, Bus, & other Green Transit Support
* A better & denser infrastructure
* A pro small-business attitude
* First Responders supported
* Unreasonable Overlays/Ordinance gone
* Veteran outreach
* An achievable affordable housing plan
* A place for everyone!

I am the At-Large candidate for you!

Please visit to learn more about me and how I want to help you and our city. Twitter users can also find me on my campaign page.

Raleigh Takes A Negative Hit For Business

Dickie Thompson's recommendation to raise the fee per scooter to $300 passes, Bird & Lime determine whether or not Raleigh is worth the hassle, & the image of Raleigh being pro-business worsens.
