BEDFORD HILLS, N.Y. -- Officials in the town of Bedford began 2016 by taking their oaths of office to start their new terms.
Lee Roberts, a former supervisor who retired two years prior, officially rejoined the town board when she took her oath to become a councilwoman. Incumbent Supervisor Chris Burdick and incumbent Councilman Don Scott were each sworn following successful re-election victories in November.
Also sworn in, albeit it merely for ceremonial purposes, was Francis Corcoran for his Westchester County legislative seat. Corcoran, a former Bedford councilman, was seated late last year because he won election to a seat whose previous incumbent, Peter Harckham, resigned last June in order to take a state-level post. In the meantime, the seat had been filled by Alan Cole.
Each of Bedford's local officials also gathered to pose for a group photo.
