SBNC Call for Nominations

The Edgemont School Board Nominating Committee (the “SBNC”) will hold an open meeting on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 (snow date – Thursday, January 17) at 7:30pm in the EHS Faculty Lounge to receive nominations for candidates for the Board of Education of the Edgemont Union Free School District #6 at Greenburgh. Three vacancies on the Board of Education will be filled at the general election on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. These three will be created by the expiration of the terms of office for Alec Clarke, Judy Seiff and Nilesh Jain. As of this mailing, Alec and Judy intend to seek election to a second term and Nilesh, who was elected to complete the unexpired term of Ken Orce, intends to seek election to his first complete 3-year term.

The SBNC invites all Edgemont residents to actively participate in the nominating process by urging qualified residents of our community to seek nomination to the Board of Education, submit nomination letters for candidates, and attend the open meeting on January 16, 2019.

Members of the Board of Education, in a strong spirit of volunteerism, serve without compensation. Members are required to attend two public meetings per month (and more at budget time), attend Executive Sessions and undertake the necessary preparation for these functions. Membership on the Board of Education brings a solid sense of community involvement.

The nomination of a candidate to the Board of Education must be made in a letter to me as Chair of the SBNC and must be received before 7:30pm on January 16, 2019. Nominating letters may also be presented in person at the open meeting held that evening. The letter may be written by any qualified voter of the Edgemont School District other than a member (or spouse of a member) of the SBNC. In addition to the name and address of the candidate, the letter must contain a brief biographical sketch of the candidate, including the candidate’s educational background, occupation, participation in civic affairs, the length of residence in the Edgemont School District, and the grade level of any children attending any Edgemont schools and/or the year of graduation of any children who have previously attended Edgemont schools. The letter must also contain a statement indicating that the candidate has consented to serve if nominated and elected. Under the rules of the SBNC, any letter that fails to include these items cannot be accepted. Please address nominating letters to:

Vote Today 4PM to 9PM – Greenville Fire District Annual Election

Greenvile Fire Disrict 2

Vote Today!
Polls Open from 4PM to 9PM

The Annual Election of the Greenville Fire District will take place today, Tuesday, December 11, 2018, between the hours of 4:00 P.M. and 9:00 P.M. at Greenville Fire District Headquarters, 711 Central Park Avenue, Scarsdale (across from Ben’s Deli), for the purpose of electing:

One commissioner for a FIVE year term, commencing on January 1, 2019 and ending on December 31, 2023.

Incumbent Greenville Fire Commissioner Michael Rappe is running unopposed for a second five-year term.

Edgemont is defined by its school district and its fire district. A large voter turnout in Edgemont, even where the election for fire commissioner is uncontested, will send a strong message to Greenburgh Town Hall that Edgemont fully supports its fire district and does not appreciate recent attempts by town officials to interfere with its orderly administration and independence.

All duly registered residents of the Greenville Fire District as of November 19, 2018 shall be eligible to vote.
