I am Nichelle Dawkins, and I am running for re-election for the Bedford City Council. My theme has been to Carry the Vision Forward that Bedford be a quality community and a place of economic vitality for the next generation of Bedford residents. 

Since joining the Bedford City Council in August 2022, the following was accomplished:

City Budget and Management

Investing in Infrastructure

Sustaining Public Safety Support

  • Approved polices and fire salary increases in 2023 - 2024 budget.
  • Funded part -time staff positions for police.
  • Increased budgets for fire equipment, supplies and overtime.

Promoting Citizen Involvement 

  • Record 90 applications for Bedford's Boards and Commissions in 2022.
  • Establishment Bedford University with record interest in 2023.
  • Advocated for and re-established Senior Advisor Board in conjunction with new Senior Center rebuild.

I would like to continue to focus on the following in an upcoming term:

Strategic Redevelopment 

  • Finalized new Master Plan with focus on South Bedford/Brown Trail Corridor.
  • Develop new strategy for Bedford Commons.
  • Finalize development for Campus West/157 properties.

Increased Communication Opportunities with Citizens

Bedford's communication department has done an incredible job leveraging social media and other forms to inform citizens. I would like to find additional ways to provide citizen updates in partnership with the Bedford Center YMCA, Bedford Library, and the Senior Center.
