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

Habitat for Humanity Westchester works toward creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Through shelter, Habitat for Humanity empowers people to build a better future for themselves and their families.

In Westchester County since 1988, Habitat for Humanity brings together people from all walks of life to help with house building projects, in partnership with families in need. Through this collaboration, Habitat for Humanity has introduced people from more privileged backgrounds to the housing crisis that exits in or near their own communities. While joining together to eliminate local poverty and homelessness, and to make decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and public action, Habitat for Humanity volunteers have become active and vocal advocates for policies that support poverty elimination and affordable housing.
Habitat for Humanity houses are affordable for local low-income families because there is no profit built into the sale price and no interest charged on the mortgage. Habitat for Humanity acquires properties in various ways and works closely with local municipalities. In this way, the local municipality buys into the process of creating and maintaining affordable housing in its community.

Habitat for Humanity Westchester also supports healthy Green initiatives in construction and operates resale shops that keep donated furniture and housewares out of landfills, for families to use.
