Come to the meeting to learn more about Scarsdale's non-partisan system for selecting candidates to run for Village office on the Scarsdale Citizens' Non-Partisan Party slate. We will also record the meeting for airing on Scarsdale Public Television.

The CNC consists of 30 elected Scarsdale residents who represent their neighborhood election units (Edgewood, Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Heathcote and Quaker Ridge).  New members are elected to the CNC each November to serve staggered three-year terms. The volunteer group will meet over 5-6 meetings from November through  January to seek, interview, and evaluate potential candidates to run for Village office. This year the CNC will nominate individuals to run for three openings on the Scarsdale Village Board. Deputy Mayor Justin Arest and Trustee Lena Crandall will be finishing their second two-year terms and Trustee Randall Whitestone will be completing his first two-year term. The General Village Election will be held on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

Scarsdale's non-partisan system has been operating successfully for over 100 years, following a contentious election in 1909. The goal of the non-partisan system is to attract qualified citizens who would otherwise avoid campaigning, but would be willing to run for office. The CNC's deliberations and due diligence on all potential nominees is kept confidential to further encourage well-qualified volunteers to apply for a spot on the non-partisan slate. During deliberations there are four non-voting administrative volunteers present, two of whom previously served on the CNC, to ensure adherence to the procedural requirements of the Non-Partisan Resolution. Potential candidates for Village office also have the option to run for office outside of the Non-Partisan System under provisions of New York State law.

Are you interested in running for the position of Trustee on the Village Board?  Do you know someone who would serve the Village of Scarsdale well?  Contact any elected member of the CNC, or inform the CNC Chair, Jill Spielberg, at 914-419-6879 or Or contact CNC Vice Chair, Jon Krisbergh at 917-355-4515 or
