Ruth Walter, Candidate for County Legislator, Writes Letter to the Community PDF Print Email


Oct. 25, 2017:  Editor’s note:  Ruth Walter is a candidate for Westchester county legislator. The election will be held on Tuesday, November 7. 

Dear Reader: 

Westchester County has a budget of $1.8 billion. We need a strong voice on how this budget is spent.

Westchester has approximately 1,000,000 residents and spans 500 square miles. With this size population and land mass, we need a renewed focus on infrastructure, protecting our air and water, and public transit.

We also need small business incubators to grow our retail base and give property owners a break. Main Street is suffering from the shift in how consumers shop and we need to address this.

I know how small businesses work and I can do cost-cutting while staying efficient.

Send me, an entrepreneur, to White Plains and you'll get better ideas and a great work ethic.

Ruth Walter

We need people like Ruth to pay close attention to budget details, solve problems creatively, and prioritize important infrastructure that has traditionally made Westchester a desirable place to live. As a legislator, she will work diligently, intelligently, and responsibly at the job we entrust to her.

Not a great deal of substance being offered here folks, just a smiley face in search of safe spaces.

This is the Alt-left attempting to go local. Don't be fooled...

Ruth will be a great county legislator for Democrats and Republicans alike. She brings the right stuff to the legislative table. Please vote for her on November 7th!

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.
