Save The Date: Edgemont Community Council Annual Meeting – 4/10/19

The Edgemont Community Council, Inc. cordially invites you to attend its Annual Meeting on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 8 PM in the Greenville School Cafeteria, Glendale Road, Scarsdale, NY. We will begin our 72nd year of service to the Edgemont community. On the agenda for the April 10th meeting is the President’s Report; the Treasurer’s Annual Report; the election of Officers and Directors of the Council for 2019-2020; the presentation of the Silver Bowl award for service to our community; and a Guest Speaker.

This year the ECC will bestow its Silver Bowl award for distinguished community service on Old Army Road resident David M.C. Stern. Between 2010 and 2016, David was a member of the Edgemont School Board and from 2015-2016, he served as school board president.

This year’s guest speaker is Lohud’s Tax Watch reporter and columnist David McKay Wilson. Mr. Wilson has written the Tax Watch column since 2012. The post caps a career at The Journal News that began in 1986, covering City Hall in White Plains. His assignments have included City Hall in New Rochelle and Yonkers, county government in Westchester and Putnam, transportation, politics, the State House, and education. Wilson’s columns have focused on public policy issues involving the state’s broken property tax system, affordable housing, corruption in volunteer fire departments, the future of Westchester County Airport, and Edgemont’s possible incorporation. Wilson has also led community conversations on a variety of subjects, including school budgets, affordable housing, taxation of state law, and efforts locally to mitigate the loss of the state and local tax reduction school budget. Fearless and feared by some, Mr. Wilson has lived in Mahopac for the past 19 years, but his world remains in Westchester

The Edgemont Community Council Silver Bowl Award for Distinguished Community Service has been awarded almost every year since 1950. The ECC’s Silver Bowl Committee this year recommended that we present this year’s Silver Bowl to Edgemont resident David M. C. Stern.

David served two terms on the school board, from 2010 to 2016, was president in 2015-2016, and made his mark on the curriculum, audit and superintendent search committees, as well as liaison to the Edgemont School Foudnation and the Scarsdale Teachers Institute. He has coached over 20 seasons of local youth sports (soccer, lacrosse, basketball and tee-ball), and now serves as president of Edgemont Youth Lacrosse. In the schools, he has taught Great Books and volunteered in the Wiggleworks reading program. He currently sits on the School Board Nominating Committee and is a former director of the ECC. He has been an assistant Cub Scouts den leader, and he has been a long-time member of Greenville Fire District’s volunteer fire company, where he has served as a volunteer firefighter (as well as secretary and treasurer of the company). David also currently serves as chairman of the board of Westchester Institute for Human Development, a Valhalla-based on organization that works with developmentally disabled men and women, and a member of the board of MusicCorps/Renovation in Music Education in Washington, D.C., which uses music to help wounded military veterans recover. David has also been a director of the Scarsdale/Edgemont United Way, and a member of the Woodlands Community Temple School Board.

Professionally, David runs a consulting firm that provides strategic business advisory services to healthcare organizations and investors. After graduating from Edgemont in 1982, David went on to get a BA and an MBA from Yale. David lives on Old Army Road with this wife Mary Elizabeth and their children Kasey, Gavin and Fiona.
