Yes, a representative democracy. Please vote for your representatives today.

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.
