CNC Invites the Public to an Organizational Meeting on November 25 at 8 PM

CNCGraphicScarsdale Citizens Nominating Committee welcomes the 11 newly elected members and invites the public to observe its first meeting Monday, November 25, 2019 at 8:00 PM in Rutherford Hall in Village Hall 1001 Post Road, Scarsdale. 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 slate. We will record the meeting for air on Scarsdale Public Television.

The CNC consists of 30 elected Scarsdale residents who represent their neighborhood election units (Edgewood, Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Heathcote and Quaker Ridge). Ten new members are elected to the CNC each November to serve staggered three-year terms. In addition, in last week’s election one additional member was elected to fill a vacancy on the CNC. The volunteer group will meet from November 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 and Village Justice. Trustee Jane Veron will be finishing her second two-year term and Trustees Justin Arest and Lena Crandall will be completing their first two-year term. Village Justice Joaquin Alemany will be finishing his four-year term. The General Village Election will be held at Village Hall on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

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. 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. Typically there are four 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 elected member of the CNC, or inform the CNC Chair, Marc Greenwald, at 646-345-2122 or marcgreenwald@quinnemanuel.com, or CNC Vice Chair, Ryan Spicer at 401-225-9102 or ryan.spicer@turner.com.
