About James


Thank you for visiting this page and wanting to know more about the man that wants to bring about positive change to our city. I came to Raleigh in early 2013 to relocate to a different Army Reserve center and to scout out areas that I wanted to live in. After falling in love with the city immediately, I settled in western Raleigh near exit 291 on I-40. Since then I have absolutely enjoyed living here! After being employed as a Correctional Officer by the NC Department of Public Safety for a number of years, I decided to build my first house in South East Raleigh. Once moved in, I became the President of the HOA as well being elected the Vice Chairman of the Veterans Party of NC.

Since 2005 I have served in the United States Army, both on Active Duty as well as the Reserve. I have been stationed in Germany and even deployed to Afghanistan for 15 months from 2007-2008. During my stay in Germany, I was able to travel to other countries easier and gain a much broader perspective of the world and engage in other cultures. After returning home I decided to take a break from the Army for a few years to transition into civilian life again. In 2012 I joined the US Army Reserve and began to serve one weekend a month and pursue an education to which I earned a B.S. in Criminal Justice while minoring in US History & Computer Programming. Today, I still work for the NC Department of Public Safety but in the IT department helping the entire department across the our fair state.

I wish to bring about the same chance of prosperity to our wonderful city that our wonderful state has bestowed upon me. Please visit the "On the Issue" page to see what I stand for.

Thank you,

James G. Bledsoe
