Local roots run deep for new Afton mayor
It’s only been two weeks since Dick Bend was appointed to serve as Afton’s mayor, but he’s already settling in nicely.
Bend, 65, took the oath of office during a special meeting on Thursday, Jan. 2.
He was appointed by Afton City Council last month to carry out former mayor Pat Snyder’s remaining term following her resignation in December. Snyder had one year left on her term.
