CNC Invites Public to Organizational Meeting on December 5

CNCGraphicScarsdale Citizens Nominating Committee ("CNC") welcomes the ten newly elected members and invites the public to its first meeting Tuesday December 5th 2017 at 8PM at the 3rd floor meeting room at Village Hall 1001 Post Road, Scarsdale, NY 10583. Come to the meeting to learn more about Scarsdale's Non-Partisan System for selecting candidates to run for Village office on the Scarsdale Citizens' Non-Partisan Party. Scarsdale Public Television will record the meeting.

The CNC consists of 30 elected Scarsdale residents who represent their neighborhood election units (Edgewood, Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Heathcote or Quaker Ridge). Ten new members are elected to the CNC each November to serve staggered three-year terms. The volunteer group meets from December to January to seek, interview, and evaluate potential candidates to run for Village office. This year the CNC will nominate individuals to run for three openings on the Scarsdale Village Board. Trustees Marc Samwick and Deborah Pekarek will be finishing their second two-year terms and Trustee Jane Veron will be completing her first two-year term. The General Village Election is at Village Hall on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.

Scarsdale's Non-Partisan System has been operating successfully for over 100 years, following a contentious election in 1909. The goal of the Non-Partisan system is to attract qualified citizens who would otherwise avoid campaigning, but would be willing to run for office in elections that are generally uncontested. The CNC's deliberations and due diligence on all potential nominees is kept confidential to further encourage well-qualified volunteers to apply for a spot on the Non-Partisan slate. There are 4 non-elected and non-voting administrative members of the CNC present to insure adherence to the procedural requirements of the Non-Partisan Resolution. Potential candidates also have the option to run for office outside of the Non-Partisan system under provisions of New York State law.

Are you interested in running for Trustee? Do you know someone who would serve the Village of Scarsdale well? Contact any CNC representative listed below; or inform the CNC Chair, ML Perlman, at (917) 679-8779 or

The deadline for submission of a biographical form to the CNC is 5:00 PM January 17, 2018.
