Those who are elected will join 20 current CNC members to choose candidates to run for three Village Trustee positions under the banner of the Scarsdale Citizens Non- Partisan Party in the March general election.

The Citizen's Nominating Committee (CNC) election brochure is now available on the Procedure Committee website. It will also be mailed to all households in Scarsdale immediately after the General Election Day, to be received one week before the CNC Election Day, November 15. The brochure contains a list of all the candidates and their biographies, as well as election rules for voters and information on Scarsdale's Non-Partisan System.

Please read the brochure and vote at Village Hall, 7-10 AM or 2-9 PM on November 15th for candidates representing your election district or elementary school district.

Scarsdale residents have been willing for over 100 years to let the CNC select trustees and mayors and the SBNC select Board of Ed members for the rest of us. Neither the CNC nor SBNC members are allowed to ask one single question of the potential trustee, mayoral, and Board of Ed candidates. Instead, they allegedly go ask their friends and acquaintances what they think of the people running. And then we wonder why we get what we get.

Why do the Scarsdale Forum president and vice president run the Citizens Nominating Committee meetings? Isn't the Forum supposed to be an independent not-for-profit organization. What would the IRS say about this?

There is an error in the brochure and also in the above article: in Quaker Ridge, one can only vote for 2 candidates, just like the other election districts.

Good luck to all who have volunteered to run. I hope that those who win will actually really vet candidates for trustees. Given that CNC members cannot ask any questions of the potential candidates, I have yet to understand how this vetting works.
