Hendersonville City Attorney John Bradley and five outgoing aldermen were recognized for their service to the city last week during a reception at Bluegrass Yacht and Country Club.

Bradley, city attorney since 1987, announced earlier this year his plans to retire. Five incumbent aldermen — Peg Petrelli, Lori Phillips, Arlene Cunningham, Steve Brown and Jonathan Hayes — all chose to not seek re-election on Nov. 8.
