Bedford’s 2022 Town Election ~ Preliminary Election Results and a Possible Record Turnout

With a record turnout of 2,953 voters who braved cold weather, wind, and snow showers, Bedford’s 2022 town election resulted in several changes.

Returning to elected office after a short hiatus, Mark Siegenthaler is the new Town Moderator; Shawn Hanegan moved to the Select Board from his seat on the Planning Board; Zoning Board of Appeals member Todd Crowley will join the Planning Board. Newcomers Padma Choudry (Library Trustee) and Nancy Wolk (Assessor) ran unopposed.

Challengers Dan Carroll, Ron O’Brien, Kelly Horton, and Alison O’Connell, running under the “Better Together” banner, mounted a vigorous campaign andmay have drawn voters new to Town Elections. Eleanor Gorsey shared her point of view in an independent campaign.

A preliminary tally shows the following vote totals. Town Clerk Bridget Rodrigue will announce the final results early next week.
