Why am I running for Honorary Mayor of Brandon?

A child whose life is cut short due to drowning.

A hungry family on our streets not knowing when or where their next meal is coming.

A single mom, working two jobs and trying to afford after school care while juggling life’s challenges.

A special needs adult sitting in front of a television alone all day because there are no affordable or existing programs to engage her.

Young children, whose family cannot afford health insurance, waking up sicker today than the day before.

My name is Chuck Burgess, and together we can create a community where the above, REAL stories don’t exist. I am running for Honorary Mayor of Brandon this summer. As the Executive Director of the Brandon Sports and Aquatic Center, an iconic community 501c3 organization that has touched thousands of lives over the past five and half decades, I dedicate each day of my life to impacting others.

Why I’m Running

My wife, Chequita, and I came to Brandon for one reason – TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Our slogan is simple: Your CAUSE. Our COMMUNITY. My MISSION. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Causes, Community, Mission!!
This special opportunity to become the HONORARY MAYOR of BRANDON is truly amazing, and to be able to promote and influence multiple charities that will tackle societal issues such as youth drowning, special needs, homelessness, disadvantaged youth, healthcare accessibility, and affordable childcare is our cause.
My hope is that by being a part of the Honorary Mayor’s Race we will raise significant FINANCIAL RESOURCES, EXPOSURE and AWARENESS for our grass roots, community non-profits so they can drive their missions to an even greater level.
For the entire month of June, through sponsoring or participating in one of our awesome and fun events, making a financial contribution or getting others to join in, YOU can make a DIFFERENCE and an IMPACT with every dollar you contribute to our BURGESS FOR BRANDON campaign. EVERY dollar raised goes directly to local charities. EVERY charity immediately has more resources to do their great work. EVERY person touched by these dollars will be changed forever.
Thank you for contributing and being a part of this year’s Honorary Mayor’s Race and supporting the BURGESS FOR BRANDON TEAM! Your time, talent, treasures and ties will be well worth the INVESTMENT.
Let’s work together to make one of the best places to work, live and play even better for those who need us the most!
Thank you,
Chuck Burgess
