Haitian American Jean Bradley Derenoncourt Looks to be Brockton’s Next Mayor

If elected, Derenoncourt would be the first mayor of color in the history of Brockton.

Today, Brockton, MA residents will head to the polls for a preliminary election to decide their next mayor.  The seat opened following the death of former Mayor Bill Carpenter in July. Haitian American Jean Bradley Derenoncourt  is one seven candidates vying for the position. 

The 2010 earthquake brought with it its fair share of disaster, despair and pain. However, for Derenoncourt the tragedy turned into an opportunity, allowing him to build a new life for himself in the United States, dedicated to public service.
