FOP: Mayoral Forum Scheduled For Tuesday Cancelled

(BEDFORD) – The Mayoral Forum scheduled for Tuesday evening by the Stone City FOP #94 has been canceled. Here is the statement below from Cody Emmons.

Republican Mayoral Candidate Sam Craig of Bedford

The Stone City FOP would like to thank everyone for their interest in the 2019 Mayoral Forum.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen obstacles, we are unable to continue with this event.

Democrat Mayoral Candidate Rowena Cross Najafi of Bedford

We would like to thank both candidates in their professionalism, flexibility, and willingness to participate.

We would also like to thank the community for their support and interest, and hope to be able to provide similar events in the future.

Both candidates are clearly very capable and qualified for the mayoral position.

There is no doubt that the citizens of Bedford will be in very adequate hands, their interests and concerns will be voiced.

We would like to extend the best of luck to both candidates! We look forward to working with the Mayor in public safety concerns.


Kody Emmons, President
