Letter to the Editor from Elizabeth Pforzheimer

letter to the editorTo the Candidates and Supporters of Row A

Chances are you moved to Scarsdale because of its effective and honest municipal services and its excellent school system. All this has been achieved through the long-standing non-partisan system of governance in effect here for 90 years.

If you consider how quickly a house can be demolished and how long it takes to rebuild, with a result that is often newer but not better, attacking the system which has served Scarsdale so well for so many years seems a foolish exercise. The visual and verbal pollution of partisan politics is also not welcome.

Please join the rest of the community in strengthening the non-partisan system and save the ad hominem insults and divisive techniques for another place.
