The voters of Bedford should return Sherri Olsen to the council.

She voted to reduce our tax rate and abstained from voting for yet another bond that the council keeps passing without allowing citizens to vote.

She is also ruffling the feathers of the council clique and upper city management by insisting that employees be held accountable and their decisions be as transparent as possible.

Sherri represents the new trend of having council members who think independently and don't go along with every idea simply because they think they need "consensus." She is good for Bedford and will help this city finally develop a vision and a comprehensive plan for our city.

Let's put Sherri back for three years; her first one has shown she believes in the people of Bedford -- a true citizen's voice.
