LWVS Reminds You To Vote on Thursday

lwvThe League of Women Voters of Scarsdale reminds all eligible voters to vote on the school bond referendum on Thursday February 8 from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM at the Scarsdale Middle School Gym at 134 Mamaroneck Road in Scarsdale.

For information on voter eligibility visit the School District's Voter Information webpage.

The League does not support the 2018 School Facilities Bond. To be clear, the League struggled with this statement because we do support investment in Scarsdale school facilities in order to maintain and enhance Scarsdale educational excellence and to ensure the health, safety and security of our students and staff. Moreover, we support a bond as a means of funding projects that address major facilities needs. We disagree with this proposal for substantive reasons and for the way in which it was conceived and presented to the community. Should the bond be voted down, the League hopes that the Board and Administration will begin a new bond process without delay and with a more fully integrated long-range vision. In short, we support a bond but not this particular bond.

Read the League's Full Statement on the 2018 Proposed School Facilities Bond.

On January 10, 2018, the LWVS held a General Membership Meeting on the 2018 Proposed School Facilities Bond. To view a video of the Public Information session, click here or visit the Scarsdale Public Television website.

Thank you to the League of Women Voters for studying this in detail on behalf of us all. The questions you asked each step of the way were always respectful and exactly on point.

Joanne - where are the letters submitted in favor of the bond? Why aren’t those published?
