“As I prepare to call this Special Town Meeting to order, I want to take a moment to thank all of you who are present tonight. Town meeting in Bedford is one of the purest forms of democracy – but it does not happen without a quorum. I firmly believe in our democratic form of government. We have real work to do together tonight. You are the legislative branch of this town. What you – the voters of Bedford – decide tonight will make a difference in the lives of all who live in Bedford.
A quorum being present, I call this special Town Meeting to order.”
I invite all residents to take part in this unique form of local government. Please mark your calendars for Annual Town Meeting – March 27, 2017. I hope you can join us as we legislate the future of Bedford.
