A Strong voice for Bedford Basin

Over the past dozen years, Kelly has worked on Bedford’s priorities, like new schools for the area’s growing population. Two new schools and the additional classroom space being added to Basinview School mean students will be able to learn in appropriate spaces.


Other priorities have included expanding healthcare facilities in our area, like the new Outpatient Centre in Bayers Lake.

Kelly also worked to secure provincial funding for the Sackville – Bedford – Burnside Connector. It’s now under construction, and when it’s complete, Bedford residents will spend less time sitting in traffic on Magazine Hill.
