The Select Board Monday unanimously appointed two new members to the Bedford Housing Partnership, and a new member of the Arbor Resources Committee.
Housing Partnership candidate Kate Reynolds said it is important for Bedford to retain diversity, both racially and socio-economically.
Margaret Siciliano echoed Reynolds’ sentiments and highlighted the importance of socio-economic diversity. Siciliano also cited her experience working in various municipal governments and regional groups that also work alongside Bedford.
In response to a question asked by Select Board member Bill Moonan, Siciliano said it is essential to maintain “a variety of options” for all people who want to live in Bedford, including families and Seniors.
Reynolds said that she did not know as much as she would like about the issue but wanted to serve on the partnership as a means to get involved and learn more.
During the same meeting, the board unanimously named Barbara Tornheim to the Arbor Resources Committee.
