It looks like Bedford's new mayor will be Shawna Girgis, the Independent. Our first woman mayor and our first independent. That's a lot of change for this little town in one fell swoop. Mrs. Girgis is married to Dr.Kamal Girgis who graduated one year ahead of me. We worked at McDonald's together for a while I think. His brother and sister worked there, too.
The new Mrs. Mayor has a Masters Degree in social work and is the director of the Indiana Rural Health Association. I voted for her and I think she will do a good job. God bless her.
