Letter to the Editor: Former Mayor Nancy Hand in Support of Bill Primps for Village Justice PDF Print Email

To the Editor:


Mar. 14, 2018:  It is my privilege to write in support of William Primps, who is running for village justice in the upcoming election on March 20. Having worked closely with Bill over many years during my time as trustee and later as mayor, I believe he is uniquely qualified to help oversee the Bronxville court, which is integral to our public safety system.

Bill Primps as much as anyone has demonstrated his commitment to Bronxville through the many roles he has assumed in village government beginning with his service as counsel and then chair of Bronxville’s zoning board of appeals. His work there proved his ability to lead the board through difficult issues in a thoughtful, balanced, and fair-minded manner. 

The respect he garnered in these roles led to his serving as village trustee at the same time I was a trustee, so I was able to experience firsthand why Bill had gained such admiration from his colleagues. Bill’s opinions were always valued by our board, and all of us depended on him for his sage advice. Later, when I was mayor, it was only natural that I appoint Bill as my deputy mayor, the person I would depend upon most for his insight and guidance.

Bill’s years of community service bring the right combination of skills to do what is a vital job in making sure our village is safe and our court system above reproach. Quite simply put, Bill has the judicial temperament to serve as a justice--he is patient, compassionate yet firm, and has impeccable judgment. 

I strongly believe that Bill Primps is the best candidate for the job. Your vote for him will guarantee that the Bronxville court system is in very good hands.

Nancy Hand
Former Mayor of Bronxville

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.
