William Primps Narrowly Defeats Natasha Nordahl in Highly Contested Election PDF Print Email


By Carol P. Bartold, Senior Reporter     

Mar. 21, 2018:  William G. Primps defeated Natasha L. Nordahl in a highly contested election to fill the village justice court seat of retiring Justice George McKinnis. Primps won by 42 votes and will serve a four-year term. With nearly 900 votes cast, the election could mark the highest turnout ever recorded in the village. 

According to Betsy Harding, Bronxville Democratic Committee chair, heavy voter turnout for the March 20 election exhausted the polling place’s supply of scannable ballots when 750 votes had been cast. After approximately 7:00 pm, voters had to use photocopied ballots. 

Trustee candidates William H. Barton and Mark J. Wood, both of whom ran unopposed, will fill the seats vacated by Anne W. Poorman and Guy Longobardo. The new trustees will each serve a two-year term.

Barton served as a village trustee from 2006 to 2012, during which time he was the liaison to the department of public works. He looks forward to bringing his prior experience in office to the development of a new comprehensive plan. 

Wood, a village planning board alternate, believes that his real estate experience, combined with Barton’s over 35-year career in investment management, will bring a strong dynamic to the board of trustees as it faces budgeting challenges, sustaining a vibrant downtown commercial district, and updating infrastructure.

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.
