Michael E. McAllister Will Not Pursue a Third Term on the Bedford School Committee

By Michael E. McAllister

It was with mixed emotions today that I submitted a letter to School Committee Chair Dan Brosgol and Superintendent Jon Sills informing them of my decision not to pursue a third term on the Bedford School Committee. My current term – marking 6 years in total (including 3 years as Chair) – expires on March 9, 2019.

This decision was not an easy one to make. I continue to be genuinely engaged by the work of the School Committee and am proud of what we have accomplished, including:

I am excited to announce I will be seeking a caucus nomination for Bedford Selectman at Town Caucus on January 8. I ask for your support at Caucus, and in the 2019 Town Election.

At last night’s Selectmen’s meeting, I officially announced that I will not run for re-election in March for a third term as a Bedford Selectman.

Over the past year, I have started a new job that brings along with it more travel and longer days. In addition, my parents are now my neighbors and my children are teenagers. Family time has always been my priority and at this stage, the next few years are incredibly important ones to be present here at home. Unfortunately, there are not enough hours in the day to do all things well with my day job, my family life and serving you as a Selectman. I’ve done my best to balance but in the end, I respect this role so very much and want to allow someone else the opportunity to be able to give it the time it requires to serve you well.

Voter Turnout: Will It Be A Record?

It could be a record, but ONLY if YOU VOTE! Bedford’s polls will be open until 8 pm at the John Glenn Middle School.

See you there when you arrive to make it a record-breaking day!
