Indivisible Westchester on the Recent Village Election


Staff, Indivisible Westchester

Apr. 11, 2018:  Independent, grassroots activist group Indivisible Westchester, on behalf of the residents of Westchester County, is demanding an apology from the Bronxville Republican Committee for using blatantly false financial claims in Republican campaign messages.

In a recent fundraising email, Bronxville Republican Village Committee Chair Rene Atayan said that the GOP candidate for village justice is “being severely challenged by Indivisible Westchester, who has reportedly poured thousands [original italics] into what was supposed to be a village race.” This is false. Indivisible Westchester did not endorse a candidate in this race and did not contribute anything, much less “thousands,” to any candidate in Bronxville.

Fabricating a story to raise money does a disservice to both candidates in this race, the Westchester voters, and our political discourse in general. Ignoring facts and misleading the American public has become a hallmark of Donald Trump’s Republican Party. And now it is becoming painfully clear that Republicans at every level – village, county, state, and federal – are embracing Trump and the national GOP’s dishonest, win-at-all-costs style instead of standing up for American values that Westchester residents cherish.

“At a time when our country is more divided than ever and outside groups really are pouring money into our local NY races, members of Indivisible Westchester are committed to holding both parties accountable to ensure that Westchester remains a place where we value truth, respect our neighbors, and support candidates that believe in equality and inclusion,” said Shannon Powell, co-founder of Indivisible Westchester. “And we certainly won’t stand for Trump’s GOP, or anyone, frankly, misleading the public.”

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.
