Black Diamond is a beautiful city with tremendous opportunities before it. I would like to cultivate those opportunities through neighborly conversations. Everyone who lives, works, and owns a business in Black Diamond wants the best future for our city. But recent growth has put a strain on our city’s neighborhoods, roads, businesses, school, police and fire services. My leadership background makes me the best candidate to bring people together to voice their concerns and find reasonable solutions to our problems. I envision a city where families and businesses can thrive.


My wife and I chose Black Diamond as a place to raise our family and grow our careers because of its forward-thinking and family-friendly charm. My wife loves teaching first grade at Black Diamond Elementary and our girls are so happy to be at school with her every day.

Black Diamond is attracting more people who want to join our way of life. The Ten Trails development is inevitable and well underway. We are already feeling the growing pains of a city not ready for this level of expansion.  Our public services must keep pace with these changes.  Funding for fire and police as well as city infrastructure (roads, sidewalks, parks) must increase.  It is also vital that we protect our environment. 


While most of us agree of these topics, there will come a time when the city council votes on topics like banning fireworks, allowing cannabis stores, decriminalizing safe injection sites, defunding police and attracting homeless camps?  When that time comes, we need to have the right person on the city council. 


Corey Bailey will always put personal opinions and party affiliation aside and vote to protect our city, our residents, and our Black Diamond way of life
