Camden Planning Commissioner Ronnie Bradley said he had never spoken in front of Camden City Council before. He said he felt he had to Tuesday morning because of what he read in the newspaper: an at times heated discussion over the possibility of dissolving at least two of the city’s commissions. During council’s work session Thursday, council members received a recommendation from City Manager Kevin Bronson to abolish the Camden Archives and Museum and Camden Price House commissions.
