Bedford’s Democrats opened their campaign headquarters on West Main Street last week.
The opening was dedicated in memory of Bill Ross, who died on May 31 at the age of 89. Ross was a long-time party activist and Ann Duncan, speaking at the opening, credited him with revitalizing the local party after moving here in 1996.
Bill Ross grew up in Roanoke and his wife, Julia, was from Big Island. After Bill retired from a career with IBM, the couple settled in Bedford.
