LWVS Candidates Forum For Contested Election Tonight at Village Hall

meetcandidatesThe Scarsdale Village election will be contested again this year. There are four candidates vying for three positions as Village Trustee. Each position is a two-year term. The Citizens Nominating Committee (CNC) has put forth its slate of candidates for each slot: Jane Veron, who is seeking a second term as Trustee, as well as Justin Arest, and Lena Crandall who are running for their first times. Running as a candidate for Village Trustee under the Voter's Choice Party is Robert Berg. The Village Election is Tuesday March 20th. All Election Districts will be voting at the Scarsdale Library, 54 Olmsted Road. Hours of the election are 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and Noon to 9 p.m. As Village Clerk Donna Conkling has explained, the top three vote getters in the election will each garner a spot as Village Trustee.

The League of Women Voters encourages informed and active participation of citizens in local government and the election processes. Accordingly, the LWVS is hosting a Candidates Forum on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm in Rutherford Hall at Scarsdale Village Hall. (March 8th has been set as a snow date for the event.) All four candidates running for Trustee in the upcoming Village election will be participating in the Candidates Forum. The Leagues encourages all Scarsdale citizens to come hear from the candidates and provide questions to be asked of them. For those who cannot attend, the event will be recorded for playback on Scarsdale Public Access TV.
