BEDFORD, N.Y. – Bedford United, a homegrown political party that describes itself as independent and focused on local issues, transparency and bipartisanship, has endorsed the Republicans’ slate of candidates for election in November.

They are Don Scott for supervisor, Peter Michaelis for Town Board, Boo Fumagalli for town clerk, and Clark Petschek for town justice. Alli Choi, who entered the race too late to be considered for the GOP ballot, Scott said, will be Bedford United’s other Town Board candidate.

“We are thrilled to be entrusted to bring much-needed transparency and local focus to our town governance,” Scott said. “Each one of Bedford United’s candidates brings a diverse range of skills and experiences.”

All told, he said, the Bedford United slate represents more than 40 years of combined experience in elected office and over 80 years serving on town permitting boards, commissions and advisory committees.

“We are humbled to have the support of Bedford voters from across the political spectrum,” Scott said.
