Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Castro Valley resident Billy Bradford is this year’s recipient of the Miriam Gholikely Public Service Award. This award recognizes extraordinary accomplishments in the field of community service, volunteerism, advocacy, leadership or minority affairs. Mr. Bradford acquires old bikes, rehabs them in his garage and gives them away for free to those in need. His operation, dubbed “Bad Business Model Bikes,” uses social media to locate bikes and also to connect with lucky recipients.
