We were excited to discover that there is an Independence Party primary this Tuesday, September 13th and that we actually have a choice of who represents us. Shockingly, we didn't hear about the primary from the party leaders, but from one of the candidates -- Luke Vander Linden -- whose name unfortunately won't be printed on the ballot but is working hard to get party members to write his name in.We met Luke at the Katonah Fire Parade earlier this year and are thrilled to be supporting him in the general election in the fall and will be writing in his name on Tuesday in the Independence Party primary.
Bedford needs the fresh eyes of someone who hasn't been in government before like Luke to complement the experience of Lee Roberts and her colleagues on the board.. Which is why we'll be voting for Luke and only for Luke to ensure that he gets one of the two Independence Party positions on the ballot. We hope our neighbors in Bedford join us in supporting Luke Vander Linden as well.
