"Over the next few years, you can expect walking trails, a revitalized downtown, growing emphasis on education and training, infrastructure improvements and community development, to name a few. My dedication to these, and many other projects, is why I am seeking re-election. I thank you for all you have done in the past and am asking for your support in the 2015 election, " she wrote.

During the event she discussed how her and other city officials will work to build a better Bedford.
