Election to be held in November
The Town Board’s appointment of former Councilman Peter Chryssos to fill the vacancy on the Town Board through the end of the year clears the way for a special election to be held in November to fill the remainder of the term.
Don Scott was unanimously nominated by the Bedford Republican Committee to run for the seat at its April meeting. Don of course, was the Republican nominee for Supervisor in 2013. As usual, the meeting was attended by an overflow crowd of Committee Members and volunteers at the Bedford Hills Community House.
Don has long been active in the community. He currently serves on the town’s Wetlands Control Commission and is a Katonah Fire Commissioner. He formerly served as the President of the Katonah-Lewisboro School Board.
At the meeting, and in a later interview with the Record Review, Don hearkened back to his energetic campaign for Supervisor last year — his very first time running for office in Bedford, when he came up just 193 votes short of nearly 4,500 votes cast. He said he was “heartened by the response he got last year” when he visited several thousand households in that campaign.
“I am more committed than ever to serving Bedford and know that I can help. Working together, we need to improve the service we deliver for our residents while addressing our fiscal challenges.”
