CNC Invites Public to Organizational Meeting November 30, 2020

CNCGraphic

Scarsdale Citizens Nominating Committee welcomes the 10 newly elected members and invites the public to observe its first meeting Monday, November 30, 2020 at 8:00 PM. The meeting will be held via Zoom video conferencing service. Members of the public wishing to follow the meeting can do so by following this link: 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.

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. 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 Mayor. Trustee Seth Ross will be finishing his second two-year term and Trustees Rochelle Waldman and Jonathan Lewis will be completing their first two-year term. Village Mayor Marc Samwick will be finishing his two-year term. The General Village Election will be held at Village Hall on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.

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 or Village Mayor? Do you know someone who would serve the Village of Scarsdale well?
