County Judge Michael R. Bradford


Judge Mike Bradford assumed the office of Midland County Judge in January 2007 and serves as the Chief Financial Officer of Midland County. Before that, he served eight years as a Midland County Commissioner for Precinct 2.  He balances his elected responsibilities with his position as the founder and current President of the Natural Resources Foundation of Texas and his ongoing interest as an oil and gas producer.
Originally from Fort Worth, Judge Bradford came to Midland in the 1970’s to work at First National Bank and has remained in Midland ever since.  He is a graduate of Texas Christian University with both Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Business Administration.  He is also a graduate of the Bank Marketing School.
Judge Bradford’s varied interests in oil and gas, banking, politics and education have led him to serve on many boards and commissions over the years.  He includes among his valued achievements an enjoyable tenure as director of the Texas Lyceum Association, where he is still an active alumnus and served as Vice President of the TCU National Alumni Board.  Also, he is the past Chair of the Texas Conference of Urban Counties, which is comprised of the 36 largest Counties in Texas, and represents over 90% of the state’s population.  He was the Texas Railroad Commission appointee to Co-Chair the State Energy Policy (for independent’s), and a Governor’s appointee to the Texas Finance Commission. Currently serves as a Board of Regent of the University of North Texas System. Currently serves on the General Tommy Franks Four Star Leadership and Foundation Board.


Judge Bradford is a devoted father and husband and plays an active role in Texas Christian University where his daughters studied.  Judge Bradford is also an avid sportsman and enjoys hunting almost as much as his passion for baseball.
