LWVS Encourages You to Attend Candidates' Forum on March 7 and to Vote on March 21

To The Editor:meetcandidates
The League of Women Voters of Scarsdale encourages informed and active participation of Scarsdale citizens in our local government and election processes. This year, the Scarsdale Village election is contested, and the LWVS is hosting a Candidates Forum on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm in the Scott Room of the Scarsdale Public Library. Two candidates are running for the position of Village Mayor, and six candidates are running for three Village Trustee positions. All eight candidates for the upcoming Village election will be participating in the Candidates Forum. We encourage all citizens to come hear from the candidates and provide questions to be asked of them. For those who cannot attend, the event will be recorded for playback on Scarsdale Public Access TV.

We also encourage all registered voters to vote in the Village election on March 21 at the Scarsdale Public Library from 6:00 am – 9:00 am and 12:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Absentee ballot, registration, and voter information can be found at www.lwvs.org .

Quoting Phil Maresco:
Will it be on Scarsdale closed circuit TV?
Please broadcast it and allow re-runs till election day!


It won't be broadcast live due to bandwidth limitations at the library, but it will be recorded and run regularly after the event. It will also be available on-demand on the Scarsdale Public TV website:

Pointed questions that the CNC could NOT ask their non-partisan candidates in their 'closed-door' sessions.
Should be an eye-opener.

VOTERS need to know where the candidates stand.

Hallelujah indeed. Scarsdale has been under single party rule for over 85 years. The last seriously contested election was in 1999. I encourage you to learn about the Voters Choice Party by going to our website and please send us your questions. And do attend the League of Women Voters of Scarsdale event. We hope that the Inquirer will sponsor a mayoral debate to allow more time for the candidates to answer residents' questions. Quoting Glory Hallelujah!:
Wow, a contested Village election in Scarsdale. We Wall Streeters call this a Black Swan event -- something so rare and unexpected. We finally have an election where our vote matters! Let's ask these candidates pointed questions and find out what they really stand for. Can't wait.
