By Susan Meaney, Member, Bronxville Non-Partisan Committee for the Nomination and Election of School Trustees

Jun. 19, 2019:  The Bronxville Non-Partisan Committee for the Nomination and Election of School Trustees (NPC) announced the individuals who will join the committee, following the village-wide election that ended on June 11. This year, one representative from each of Bronxville’s seven voting districts was elected to serve a three-year term. In two of those districts, a representative won re-election after being elected in 2018 to serve out the remaining year of a retiring member’s term.

The new members are Dean Vanderwarker (District 16); Ed Reilly (District 17); Nick Willoughby (District 19); Beata Gocyk-Farber (District 20); and Anthony Mercando (District 22). The re-elected members are Jeff Hine (District 18) and Lee Huang (District 21).

The NPC thanks the five members of the committee who rolled off the committee effective June 12: Larry Bettino, Andrew Harwood, Jim Purdy, Lindy Devereux, and Don Bringle. These individuals have generously donated their time and energy to ensuring that the candidates for school board trustee are recruited, properly vetted, and nominated each year. Their service to the NPC is very much appreciated. 

The NPC will resume activity in September when the committee will reconvene to begin soliciting applications for school trustee candidates to run in the school district election in May of 2020.

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.
