Bedford Republicans debut slate


Bedford councilman Francis Corcoran, town board candidate Mary Beth Kass, supervisor Lee Roberts, town clerk Boo Fumagalli and supervisor candidate Don Scott give the thumbs up at the Bedford Republican Party’s official announcement ceremony.


Bedford’s Republican candidates received a show of support on June 3 at the Bedford Hills train station from Westchester’s county executive Robert Astorino, who also applauded town supervisor Lee Roberts for her 10 years of service in her current position.

“A decade is a wonderful amount of time to serve,” Mr. Astorino said at the Republican Party announcement ceremony. “I am honored to have got to know you for quite a long time now, and I think everyone can give you a round of applause for all you’ve done for the town of Bedford.”

Ms. Roberts has decided not to run for the office of supervisor, a position she has held since 2003. She has also been a member of the town board since 1994. Mr. Astorino endorsed Republican candidate Don Scott for the position, as well as Republican candidate Mary Beth Kass and incumbent Francis Corcoran for positions on the town board, incumbent Erik Jacobsen for town justice and incumbent Boo Fumagalli for town clerk.

“There are party labels that unfortunately get stuck to people for various reasons, and there’s a party that I’m proud to be representing, but on a local level you want the best people representing you. It really doesn’t matter what party it is,” Mr. Astorino said. “The candidate here that is running for supervisor is the best person to run for this position. So Don Scott, who has been very involved in our community in Bedford for a long time, is going to be that candidate.”

Ms. Roberts also showed her support for Mr. Scott during the ceremony.

“Every once in a while a really special individual come around who has the leadership skills, the intelligence, the ability to work with others to empower them to do their very best job, and Don Scott is that person,” she said. “I will be working hard for him, and I ask all of you to join me in that effort and make sure Don Scott, the ‘great’ Scott, is the next supervisor.”

Mr. Scott, who has previous experience serving as the president of the Katonah-Lewisboro board of education, as well as current positions on the Bedford wetlands commission, the Bedford communications committee and the Katonah Fire Department’s board of commissioners, said he appreciated Bedford’s sense of nonpartisan community spirit.

“It’s not about Democrats, it’s not about Republicans, it’s about our friends and neighbors, it’s about appreciating the people that work in this town, which makes the town so special, and that’s really the core of what we need to preserve here in Bedford,” he said at the ceremony. “We need to protect our historic landmarks, we need to preserve our environment, and we need to keep the town affordable for our taxpayers. That’s something this group will be dedicated to from day one.”

Ms. Kass, a co-president of Bedford 2020, an environmental nonprofit that recommends policy to the town, said at the ceremony that she is excited to meet and work with people throughout town during campaign season.

“I really have this great opportunity to meet so many wonderful people here in the community and really to work with some exceptional, hardworking people contributing to making Bedford a wonderful place to live and work and raise our family,” she said.

Mr. Corcoran said that he would like to continue to help lead the town throughout tough economic times that have been facing the area in recent decades.

“I’m very proud of the work I’ve been able to do,” he said at the ceremony. “I’m looking forward to continue to not only build the character and the community of this great town, but also to continue to help lead it through some of the fiscal challenges that it faces, like other municipalities.”

Janet Jacobsen represented her husband at the ceremony, who was performing his duties as town justice at the time.

“I’m proud to stand up here and represent Erik,” she said. “He’s on the bench like he has been doing for the last 3 1/2 years, serving the people of Bedford and the community he loves.”

Ms. Fumagalli spoke highly of Ms. Roberts for her time on the town board.

“It is with great sadness that I have to thank my very, very dear friend Lee Roberts for her 20 years of service, 10 on the town board and 10 as supervisor,” she said at the ceremony. “I’ve been with Lee day after day when she’s had to make some very tough decisions. She’s done it with grace and poise, and I cannot say how appreciative I am of all that’s she’s done.”

Also honored at the ceremony was town councilman Peter Chryssos, who, along with Ms. Roberts, has decided not to run for re-election. He too had kind words for the Republican candidates.

“I figure if Lee was going to go, there’s no reason for me to stay,” he said. “I am very much excited and thrilled about the candidates that we have here. I’m pleased to know that the town is going into solid hands of visionaries as opposed to functionaries, as opposed to people who just do things because that’s the way they’ve always been done.”

Mr. Scott said Mr. Chryssos has been an influential member of the town board.

“One thing I will take from you, Peter, is the courage to say what’s on your mind, even when it’s not popular,” Mr. Scott said at the ceremony. “That’s a skill that’s sorely missing in this country right now, and I really appreciate that from you.”

The Bedford Republican candidates, as well as the county executive, county clerk candidate Mary Beth Murphy and Westchester’s 2nd District candidate Andrea Rendo, are planning to participate in a meet-and-greet event tonight, Friday, June 14, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the home of Belinda and Luke Terry at 550 Harris Road in Bedford.
