Harper, a civil litigator with the Palm Beach firm Powers, McNalis, Torres, Teebagy & Luongo, defeated a better-funded and more experienced opponent to win the seat.
Bradley graduated with an accounting degree from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, with honors in 1999.
He paid his way through college with a part-time job in the college post office, financial assistance, and scholarships, awarded for his leadership and academic performance.
“I think it’s an important step in our community,” Harper told the Palm Beach Post newspaper. “We came together from all different parts of the community to make sure we have a fair judiciary and that it looks like our community.”
Harper has twice been a finalist for circuit judicial positions and is active in the Palm Beach County community where he is a sixth-generation resident. Heavily involved in a number of community service activities, Harper is a past winner of the Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. “Man of Excellence” award and was named a Legal Services Trailblazer by the Success South Florida “40 Under 40.”
