Register to Vote on September 27

vote411LWVS Observes National Voter Registration Day On Tuesday September 27:

With the election just a few weeks away, The League of Women Voters of Scarsdale will host a voter registration drive on September 27, 2016 from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm at the Scarsdale Public Library. Voter registration forms, absentee ballot applications and basic voter information will be available to anyone who stops by. Volunteers will be on hand to help answer questions about how and where to register to vote.

The registration deadline for the November 8, 2016 General Election is Friday October 14, 2016. Voter registration is required for all new voters. If you have changed your address or changed your name, you must re-register to vote.

The League of Women Voters of Scarsdale is a volunteer nonpartisan organization that promotes political responsibility through informed and active participation. In 2008, 6 million Americans did not vote because they missed a registration deadline or did not know how to register. In 2016, the League of Women Voters wants to make sure no eligible voter is left out of our democratic process.

Visit for more information about the League in Scarsdale, and to obtain voter registration forms, absentee ballot information and voter 411 guides. You may also visit for additional voter information.

Shoe Inn is Back in Scarsdale!

DSC09880Just in time for fall, Shoe Inn is back at the Golden Horseshoe Shopping Center on Wilmot Road in Scarsdale. The store was a perennial favorite for those who love fashion forward brands, many which are sourced from Italy and cannot be found in the department stores.

ShoeInn4They closed their doors after decades at the Golden Horseshoe a few years ago, leaving a void in town. Shoe Inn re-opened last week stocking an appealing array of shoes and boots in jewel tone colors. This fall, the trend is for loafers, booties and platforms in blues, magentas and tans –crafted from soft suede, velvet and leather.

Stop by and welcome Shoe Inn back to town shoeinn2and try on some of these beautiful styles. In addition to footwear, you also find handbags, accessories and jewelry. Enjoy Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 12 – 5 pm.

Also coming to the Golden Horseshoe soon is the new Seasons Market, a liquor store, a CVS and Chopt for salads. Current Home has recently opened a large new store and Eye Q Optometrist has moved into roomier quarters.


Your Letters: New Roads and the Revaluation

letter-to-the-editorThis letter was sent to the Scarsdale Village Manager, the Engineering Department and the Public Works Department by Emily Gilman of Ogden Road and is copied below:

Gentlemen: We very much appreciate the resurfacing of Ogden Road today. It is beautiful and we hope that it can stay that way for a long while. It was a long and arduous process mainly for the workers but also for the residents as we lived daily for months with the rough conditions which had detracted from our expectations befitting the wonderful Village/Town of Scarsdale. May I recommend that you spend more time informing other residents trafficconewho are awaiting the same process of repaving with more details so that they can manage their expectations on a timetable? I realize that there are certain "unknowns" given the contractors and the weather, but the more information given to residents the better.

Thank you again for being responsive to our needs.

This note was sent to Scarsdale10583 by Daniel Killourhy:

Regarding the recent flawed and inadequately documented revaluation, it seems that there is a reasonable basis for invalidating the most recent Ryan update. It there is a way to do this legally it appears that this is the way to proceed and would be fair to the vast majority of taxpayers. Individual taxpayers will still have the option to grieve assessments under the previous Tyler revaluation.
