Well, it’s that time of year again; time for the highway department to cut the grass on the roadsides. I’ve seen several already. You probably have too. A guy on a tractor with one of those mechanical arms hooked to it and on the end of the arm is the mowing/cutting unit.
I am and have been a citizen of Bedford County for over 60 years. I normally try not to get involved in politics and government matters. But this situation with our former County Administrator, Kathleen Guzi, is weighing on my mind, and I feel it is time for me to speak out.
Now that the forced resignation of County Administrator Kathleen Guzi, by some members of the Bedford County Board of Supervisors has been accomplished, it’s now time to thank Ms. Guzi for her many years of service to our community.
“If they don’t like what we are doing here, they can go. I’m sure the road they came in on has a lane that goes in the opposite direction. “--Roger Cheek, Bedford Co. Board of Supervisors. [Bedford Bulletin, Jan. 25, 2012
The attitude expressed by Mr. Cheek in the Bedford Bulletin on January 25 is disappointing. His comment that those who do not agree with him should leave the county does not contribute to resolving the serious flaws in his rezoning proposal.
I would like to express my most sincere thanks to the residence of District 6 and citizens of Bedford County, for allowing me to serve as your School Board Representative for the past 16 years and 6 months.
