Written by Richard Magat

June 23, 2010: Sheila Marcotte, defeated Gregory Varian of New Rochelle Tuesday for the vacant 10th District seat in the Westchester County Legislature.

Marcotte won 3,085 votes to his 2,108. Her tally was composed of 2,373 Republican votes, 333 Independent, and 379 Conservative. Varian's was 2,095 Democratic and 114 Working Families. 105 absentee ballots were cast.

The special election was called to fill the seat in the Westchester County legislature vacated in April by the long-serving Vito Pinto. He resigned to join the new county government of County Executive Rob Astorino taking the head of two posts-the Veterans Services Agency and the Office of Drug Prevention and Stop DWI.

Marcotte, a Republican, is a member of the Eastchester Town Board, a former Tuckahoe Village trustee, and planning commissioner.

Mr. Varian , a Democrat, has been active in neighborhood associations in New Rochelle, where he practices law, and is a member of theNew Rochelle  Library Board.

Both candidates campaigned against tax increases and for shrinking county government. "Nothing should be ruled out when it comes to consolidation," said Marcotte. Varian called for the consolidation of sewer districts. He criticized the county for not making federal stimulus funds available to prevent sewer backup and flooding.

The Journal News endorsed Varian while acknowledging. Marcotte's energy and commitment to local government.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
