It's not often that being called "a pain in the butt" is a good thing. But Bob Bradshaw grinned as politicians recalled his years of polite — yet relentless advocacy for Davidsonville Park. Bradshaw has long been praised as a driving force behind the creation and design of the park, which opened in 2005 on the site of a former sand and gravel mine. To recognize that work, Anne Arundel County named the park's main road "Bob Bradshaw Way" last week. "It's only a street sign, but every time I drive by, I will remember fondly the work Bob did," said state Sen. Ed Reilly, who worked with Bradshaw on the park when Reilly was a member of the County Council.
