Robert Carson is the only person running for Town Council who is not currently a member of Bedford City Council. Carson threw his hat in the ring after learning that Mary Flood will not seek a seat on the new elected body.
Carson, who is 58, is a Bedford native and has been involved with Little Town Players (LTP) for nearly 20 years. He’s been in a number of LTP’s productions and had lead roles in Purlie and Amen Corner. Carson directed last year’s production of Purlie.
