Mayor Bagshaw was a constant and passionate advocate for the city he served. His fire for change and passion for the city he served will be a lasting part of his legacy.

The city asks that everyone keep Mayor Bagshaw’s loving wife Bonnie and his family members in your prayers during this difficult time.
