UPDATE: November 9, 2021 CNC Election at Scarsdale Public Library
The non-partisan Citizens Nominating Committee (CNC) election was held on Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at the Scarsdale Public Library from 7 AM to 9 PM, when Scarsdale voters turned out to vote for their neighbors who wished to participate in the work of the CNC.
Each year the Procedure Committee (PC) is asked for vote totals for individual candidates. Whether the request is from voters, candidates, residents generally or the media, the Non-Partisan Resolution prohibits disclosure of both the names of candidates who fell short and the number of votes per candidate. The PC reports only the gross number of voters and total votes by Election Unit.
Fox Meadow: 109
Heath Sroka – two-year term
Laura Thierer – one-year term
Marjorie Anne Meiman
Quaker Ridge: 16
There were 209 in-person voters and 45 valid mail-in ballots. The total number of votes across the board was 254.
Following the CNC's Organization Meeting on November 29, in December 2021 and January 2022 the CNC's 30 voting members will engage in a rigorous vetting process to nominate a slate of non-partisan candidates for the open village offices of three village board Trustees. Next year the slate will include a candidate for Mayor and Trustees. The School Board Nominating Committee has adopted a similar nonpartisan process. As the League of Women Voters Scarsdale has said on its website: "The intention of Scarsdale's nonpartisan system is to attract the best possible people to run for school board, village trustee and mayor while minimizing electioneering, money, partisan politics and agenda-driven candidates. Scarsdale's nonpartisan system allows the focus to be on bettering our community, rather than on running costly campaigns."
The village-wide election for the CNC's eventual trustee nominees, and other candidates for village office who wish to run independently of the non-partisan system, will be held later on in spring 2022.
