Seeking Applicants for an Interim Vacancy on the Bedford School Committee

The Bedford Selectmen and the Bedford School Committee are seeking applicants for an interim appointment to fill a vacant seat on the Bedford School Committee after a recent resignation.

The School Committee has five elected members.  The appointment for this seat will run through March 14, 2020, when an election for the remaining years of the vacated term will be conducted. The interim member may choose to run for election on March 14, 2020, or resign.

Any registered voters interested in volunteering for appointment to this position are invited to apply by submitting a Volunteer Questionnaire to the Town Manager’s Office or by e-mail to sstanton@bedfordma.gov.

The Volunteer Questionnaire is available at Town Hall, or online, by clicking this link.

The deadline for submitting a questionnaire to be considered for this position is Monday, November 18, 2019.

A joint meeting of the Bedford Selectmen and the Bedford School Committee will be held at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, November 26, 2019, in the Large Group Instruction Room at Bedford High School, 9 Mudge Way, Bedford to appoint the position.

Registered voters interested in volunteering are encouraged to attend the upcoming School Committee meeting scheduled for November 12, 2019 in the Bedford High School Large Group Instruction Room at 7:30 pm, and are invited to contact members of the School Committee with questions.

Contact information for the Bedford School Committee is available at https://www.bedfordps.org/district/school-committee.

Candidates on the School Committee’s 2020 Ballot

This vacancy will mean four of the Bedford School Committee’s seats will be up for election in March 2020.

Sarah Scoville and Ann Guay are each completing three year terms.

Member Dan Brosgol resigned last summer before beginning his role as School-Aged Child Care Director for the Town of Bedford, and was later reappointed to the School Committee by a joint vote of the Selectmen and the School Committee.  As with the person appointed to the recently-vacated seat, Mr. Brosgol’s appointment will end in March and the seat will be filled by election for a one-year term to complete Mr. Brosgol’s original term.

Each of these members is eligible to run for re-election.

Editor’s Note: ‘Select Board’ as originally stated has been changed to Selectmen. Although Article 17, the Charter Amendment that would change Selectmen to Select Board passed unanimously on a voice vote at Monday evening’s Town Meeting, the new name will not be officially adopted until it is approved during the 2020 Town Election.
