Board of Directors Election Candidates

Emilie Baggett

Ms. Baggett, originally from Canada, moved to Sun City this year from Phoenix where she had resided for 26 years. She has a BA in Education and Religion.

Ms. Baggett has worked for the Police Department in Payson and worked as Manager for one of the big box stores. She was on the Board of Directors for her church while in Phoenix and currently volunteers in service to Veterans and their families to assist with healthcare, housing and nutrition.

Ms. Baggett feels as a relatively new resident in Sun City she can offer a fresh set of eyes to the SCHOA Board to keep Sun City the quality and beautiful place residents have come to expect.

Greg Bradley

Mr. Bradley and his wife, Vicki, were snowbirds for four years before moving to Sun City permanently from Mt. Zion, Illinois in 2022.

Mr. Bradley has volunteered for various Board including as Trustee for Mt. Zion Village, where he and his wife lived. He also served as Treasurer of Illinois High School Association, Elder of Passion Church and currently serves on the council for United Church of Sun City as Vice Moderator.

Serving on the SCHOA Board would give him the opportunity to become more involved with the community and be more cognizant about the CC&R’s.
