How Mario Cuomo energized Bedford’s Democrats

Go back about 10 years in Bedford. The Democrats had not had a supervisor in office since Albert Marchigiani, who served from 1974 to 1978. Before him, he was the first Democrat to be elected supervisor of Bedford since E.P. Barrett defeated the incumbent Democratic supervisor, Isaac Turner, in 1905. As for the town board, it was an almost entirely Republican enclave — Richard Lemon was the first Democrat elected to the town board in the 20th century — in the year 1969. While he served two four-year terms, the drought continued into the 2000s, when all-Republican boards were the norm and Dems typically limped into the November elections, if they even showed up as candidates at all.

All that changed in the early 2000s. And all it took was a visit from Mario Cuomo, whose visit to Bedford Hills in 2003 was a turning point for the local town committee. The former governor came to Spasso Restaurant — today, Sette e Venti — on Route 117 when the Bedford Dems were at a low in their polls and in their numbers. He was the recipient of an award in his name, created by the Bedford Democratic Town Committee to “honor individuals who have courageously fought for Democratic values in New York.” Read more >

Padilla is celebrated as county’s first Hispanic chief

By EVE MARX

Chief Melvin Padilla was installed as the highest-ranking officer and leader of the Bedford Police Department in November.

 

In late fall, Bedford’s town board appointed Melvin Padilla as the town’s provisional chief of police, after Chief William Hayes announced his decision to work for the county district attorney’s office.

Chief Padilla, a 13-year veteran of the Bedford Police Department, is the department’s first Hispanic chief. He is also the first Hispanic to be promoted to chief in Westchester County. Until it all happened, he said he was unaware of that fact.  Read more >
