About J.C. Bradbury

I am an economist with a background in public finance and sports economics.  I received my Ph.D. in economics from George Mason University in 2000.  I am Professor of Sport Management and Economics and Department Chair of the Department of Exercise Science and Sport Management at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia.  I have been a vocal critic of the public subsidies of stadiums; I was particularly vocal in my criticism of Gwinnett County’s funding of the Gwinnett Braves stadium.  I am also a resident of Marietta, approximately 10 miles from the new stadium, and I work at Kennesaw State University, approximately 13 miles from the new stadium.  Though I did not grow up in Cobb my family has deep roots in West Cobb’s Lost Mountain community that predate the Civil War.  I am a lifelong Braves fan who attends about five games per season at Turner Field, and I would attend many more games at the proposed site in Cobb County.  I also live outside the Cumberland Community Investment District that bears a majority of the tax burden.  I estimate that on an annual basis I travel to the Cumberland area less than five times a year and spend less than $100.

It is my goal to use this site to share information on the Cobb Braves stadium. I believe it is my duty to do so as an employee of the state of Georgia.  Please note that my linking to an item does not mean I endorse it.
