This past Saturday, March 11, was Election Day in Bedford. Twelve committee positions were up for election, with thirteen candidates on the ballot either through nomination at the January Town Caucus or through individual filings. Only one race, for Library Trustee, was contested, with three candidates vying for two open spots.

If you’re like most people in Bedford, the answer is no. Only 6.17% of Bedford’s 10,000 registered voters took a few minutes out of their Saturday to participate in the franchise and determine who represents us and our interests in our own community

Election ~ 2017: Letter to the Editor, Rachel Field and Robin Grace Silbert for Library Trustee

By Lynne O’Connor

As an avid library supporter and trustee of 15 years, I’m excited that Bedford has three strong candidates currently running for Library Trustee: Rachel Field (incumbent), Robin Grace and Sarita Pillai. Since there are only two open seats, however, I’m endorsing Rachel Field and Robin Grace for Library Trustee based on my experience with and utmost confidence in these talented and dedicated community leaders.
