William Primps to Run for Bronxville Village Justice March 20 PDF Print Email


By Staff     

Jan. 31, 2018:  William Primps was nominated for village justice by the Bronxville Republican Caucus meeting at Bronxville Village Hall on January 23, 2018. He will run for a four-year term on the Republican and Bronxville Citizens for Responsible Government lines in an election to be held on March 20.

Bill and his wife, Phia, have been Bronxville residents for 33 years and sent their three children to The Bronxville School. He first became involved in village government during the administration of the late Mayor Sheila Stein, serving as counsel to the village zoning board starting in 1988 and chairing that body from 1989 through 1991, when he was elected trustee. He served in that position in the administration of Mayor Nancy Hand until 1998.

More recently, Mayor Mary Marvin appointed him as counsel to the Bronxville Village Board of Ethics, where he has served for the past dozen years.

In addition to his work in village government, he has also served on the governing boards of several local organizations, including The Reformed Church of Bronxville, The Bronxville School Foundation, The Community Fund, and the Bronxville Field Club.

Bill is a graduate of Yale University and Harvard Law School. He is a partner in the New York office of Locke Lord, an international law firm with 18 offices worldwide, where he maintains a practice focusing on international litigation and arbitration.

When asked about his plans, he said, "If elected, I hope to emulate retiring Justice George McKinnis in serving the citizens of our special village by the firm and fair administration of justice."

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.
