From the Office of Michael Spano: Mayor Spano to Run for State Senate PDF Print Email


From the Office of Michael Spano, Mayor, City of Yonkers

Editor's note
:  The 37th State Senate District includes Bedford, Bronxville, Eastchester, Harrison, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Port Chester, Rye, Rye Brook, Tuckahoe, White Plains, and Yonkers.

Dec. 20, 2017:  Yonkers's Mayor Mike Spano announced late last week his intention to seek the Democratic Party nomination for the 37th State Senate District, which will become vacant January 1 when Senator George Latimer becomes Westchester County executive.

“We’ve turned Yonkers around during my six years as mayor,” said Spano, adding, “I want to put that record of success and leadership to work for the people of the 37th District.”

Spano released a video to launch his campaign, which can be viewed at

 “I’ll work to get Albany’s attention to our needs, and you can bet I’ll stand up for Westchester values against the assault we are under from the Trump administration,” said Spano.

Spano said he has been talking to Democratic activists and district leaders throughout the 37th District and is extremely heartened by their encouragement. “The support is strong, and once the governor sets the date for a special election, I’m going to hit the ground running.”

Spano says his priorities will be to fight for a fair share of education funding for Westchester school districts, to ensure the area economy remains strong, and to hold the line on taxes. “People want good jobs, they want good schools, and they don’t want to be taxed out of existence,” said Spano. “That’s what this election will be about.”

Elected as mayor in 2011 after representing Yonkers as an assemblyman, Spano led the city to success in a wide variety of areas. He transformed the city’s bond rating from near-junk status to an “A” rating by Moody’s and Standard & Poors. All of his submitted budgets stayed within the state property tax cap. He inherited a $55 million shortfall in school district funds due to accounting errors begun under the prior administration and fixed the problem without resorting to layoffs or cuts in education programs.

Under Spano’s watch, nearly $2 billion in private investment has flowed into the city, transforming the downtown and providing housing and jobs throughout the city. Crime is at an all-time low, and Wallet Hub recently designated Yonkers as one of the 100 best cities in the United States. “Westchester needs strong leadership in the state senate,” he concluded. “I’m ready to provide it.”

The 37th State Senate District stretches from parts of Yonkers and New Rochelle in the south following the eastern side of the county to Bedford. It comprises Bedford, Bronxville, Eastchester, Harrison, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Port Chester, Rye, Rye Brook, Tuckahoe, White Plains, and Yonkers.

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.
