Letter to the Editor: Linda Smith-Shearer in Support of Bill Primps for Bronxville Village Justice PDF Print Email


To the Editor:

Mar. 7, 2018:  Village elections will be here in less than three weeks. I hope you will join Bob and me and go to the polls Tuesday, March 20, to vote for the candidates and support the generous volunteers who help make our village run so smoothly.

This year there is a contest for village justice between two energetic and capable lawyers, both of whom I know and respect highly. I encourage you to do your research and make sure to vote this year.

Bill Primps has my vote for village justice. I have known Bill since college and can attest to his intelligence, energy, dedication, judicial knowledge, strong work ethic--and just plain good common sense, a requisite for the position.

Having been in the village over 33 years, raised three kids through the school, and served in many different village volunteer capacities, Bill has the experience and balanced judgment we need in our next village justice.

He cares deeply about Bronxville and has supported the restorative justice program that his predecessor, George McKinnis, introduced to Bronxville. This program with the consent of crime victims allows the court to fashion remedies for certain crimes that do not involve prison time--thereby reducing mass incarceration and providing a meaningful way back to society. 

Hope to see you at the polls at village hall; thank you for voting!

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.
