CNC Seeks Candidates for Village Trustee

CNCGraphicThe Citizens Nominating Committee ("CNC") is currently searching for potential candidates to run for three opening Village Trustee positions. Names of potential candidates should be submitted to the CNC by Friday, January 5, 2018. The General Village Election is on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.

According to ML Perlman, Chair of CNC (a non-voting position) "The CNC conducts a confidential and non-issue based review of potential candidates for office. The cornerstone tenet of Scarsdale's hundred-year nonpartisan tradition is that a candidate's general abilities and character - not their personal position on any Village issue – are held paramount to all other considerations. The objective is to find the best possible individuals to serve the Village no matter what issues the future may bring."

The CNC is a group of 30 elected representatives (6 from each neighborhood) tasked with reaching-out within our Village community to encourage residents who are ready, willing, and able to volunteer their service as one of three new Trustees.

CNC representatives are available to answer questions and help candidates through the non-partisan process, which involves the completion of a biographical sketch and a brief presentation. The names of those who come before the CNC are kept confidential to encourage as many qualified individuals as possible to come forward.

If you (or anyone you know) would make a great Village Trustee, please contact any member of the CNC listed on the following page. Candidates must be U.S. citizens over the age of 18 and residents of the Village of Scarsdale.

Information about the Citizens Nominating Committee can be found on the web site of the Scarsdale Procedure Committee

Why are there only 29 CNC members? Who stepped down and what is the process to replace this person?

Where are the guidelines of how CNC picks and vets people? On what website?

Agreed. Please pick people who can communicate with residents, and find trustees who can stop the practice of having meetings at 5:30 and 6pm! How can Village officials claim they want resident involvement and then have meetings when the vast majority of residents cannot attend??


Quoting Deb Silkes:
Dear CNC,

Please pick competent candidates who are not just 'yes' people to the current Board. Please, no more real estate people. Look for people with expertise in different areas. Please really vet candidates. Don't just pick your friends. Thanks for your volunteerism.
