Procedure Committee Seeks Volunteers

volunteerThe Procedure Committee, the ad hoc group of community volunteers who administer the nonpartisan election system in the Village, is inviting qualified voters to serve on the PC next year. There are 11 open appointed seats available on the PC beginning February 1, 2019 for a term ending on January 31, 2020.

Recently, the PC administered the election of the new members of the all-volunteer Citizens Nominating Committee, which is now in session interviewing, evaluating and selecting candidates who will be on the ballot for village elected offices this spring. Elections for open positions on the Village Board are held every year, and for Village Justice every four years.

This unique non-partisan system, in existence in the village for 88 years, gives qualified residents elected by their neighbors an opportunity to participate in village civic affairs and to have their voices heard on who will govern at Village Hall. According to Procedure Committee Chair Madelaine Eppenstein, the 30 elected members of the CNC this year are already conducting due diligence reviews of non-partisan candidates for the offices of Mayor and three Trustees. The CNC will then nominate candidates to represent the non-partisan party’s slate, under the banner of the Scarsdale Citizens’ Non-Partisan Party in the village-wide election on March 19, 2019.*

To participate in the non-partisan election system as a 2019 appointee of the Procedure Committee, apply by contacting Madelaine Eppenstein by email: meppenstein@eppenstein.com

The members of the 2018-2019 Procedure Committee, whose term extends through January 31, 2019, are: Charles Baltman; Sarah Bell; David Dembitzer; Eric Cheng, Vice Chair; Madelaine Eppenstein, Chair; Timothy Foley; Jeff Goodwin; Mayra Kirkendall-Rodríguez; Eli Mattioli; David Peck; Pam Rubin; Gregory Soldatenko; Nancy Steinberg; Michelle Sterling; and Bruce Wells.
Public and Media Contact: Madelaine Eppenstein, Chair, By Email: meppenstein@eppenstein.com

* Under New York State Election Law, candidates outside the non-partisan election system may also run for village office by obtaining the prescribed number of signatures on a nominating petition.
