As I write this, the results of Tuesday's elections are still unknown. By the time you read this, however, everybody will know.
At least, I hope everybody was paying attention. Elections are important and Bedford area residents had four contested races on their ballots. I want to thank Delegate Lacey Putney, Lewis Medlin, Sheriff Mike Brown, Chuck Green, Darryl Updike, Andy Dooley, Tom Dooley, Annie Pollard, Julie Bennington and Laura Rodes for having their names on the ballot. They gave voters a choice, something we must have for democracy to work.
