Letter to the Editor: Bronxville Citizens in Support of Bill Primps for Village Justice PDF Print Email


To the Editor:

Mar. 14, 2018:  As longtime residents of Bronxville with varied political persuasions, we are writing in support of the candidacy of William Primps for village justice in the upcoming election on March 20.

Bill is uniquely qualified to assume the position of village justice. Professionally, he has had a long, distinguished legal career in courts throughout the United States, and he has served the village for more than twenty years in elected and appointed positions.

As a trustee and vice mayor, he coordinated police-related matters and negotiated a new contract. As chair of the zoning board of appeals, he mediated neighbor-against-neighbor disputes openly and fairly. As counsel to the village board of ethics throughout Mayor Mary Marvin's tenure, he has been the "go-to" person for ethical dilemmas.

The Primps family has lived in Bronxville for 33 years, and their three children attended The Bronxville School from kindergarten through high school.

Bronxville has benefitted for many years from having experienced, wise judges presiding over its justice court who have a deep knowledge of our special community and the challenges it faces. We believe that Bill Primps is the candidate who can continue that tradition based on his experience, sound judgment, and noteworthy involvement in our community.

We urge you to join us on March 20 in voting for Bill as the most experienced and qualified candidate.

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.
