Ruth Walter, Candidate for County Legislator, Opens Campaign Headquarters in Bronxville on Pondfield Road PDF Print Email


By Office of Ruth Walter

Oct. 11, 2017: Ruth Walter, candidate for county legislature in District 15, which includes the greater Bronxville area, opened a new campaign headquarters in Bronxville this week at 105 Pondfield Road, next to the cheese shop.

Voters can drop by and meet the candidate, and volunteers can sign up for a shift in local grassroots politics. Voter registration ballots, lawn signs, and absentee ballots are also available.

Ruth Walter's campaign slogan is "Visible, Accessible and Accountable," and certainly her storefront is in keeping with that. Her opponent, she says, is largely missing from view, and although he has held the position for 12 years, many people don't know his name or record.

"The voters in District 15 need and deserve representatives that listen, learn, and vote in ways that reflect the values of District 15," said Walter. "Local politics affect every aspect of our community, from the parks to the roads to the services that are so vital to our quality of life.

"Although District 15 stretches from Bronxville to Northwestern Yonkers, all voters should demand visible accessible and accountable representatives. I will work as hard in county government as I have worked as a small business owner, current library treasurer, and former court clerk. My values as a mother, wife, and community builder mean that I will show up to work and I will listen to constituents."

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.
