The results are in, and Bedford voters have sent a clear and unambiguous message about putting the budget on the ballot and the charter commission.

A final THANK YOU to everyone; the petitioners, the early individual supporters, the candidates who ran, and the civic-minded organizations who helped inform their memberships and the public.

This time next year, we should be voting on changes to the charter to enable voting on the town budget via official ballot!

You are the difference-makers in Bedford.
