NYS Senate Candidate Julie Killian's Thoughts on Upcoming Senate Hearing on Storm Preparedness PDF Print Email

 alt


By Office of New York State Senate Candidate Julie Killian


Mar. 28, 2018:  New York State Senate candidate Julie Killian made the following statement on March 6 in support of the call for a hearing to examine the storm preparedness and response by regional utility companies by New York State Senator Terrence Murphy, chairman of the State Senate's Committee on Investigations and Government Operations. 

"I join Senator Murphy and Senator Sue Serino in demanding answers as to why our residents have been left without power since Friday. We face another major winter event this evening. The ripple effect of a power outage of this length and breadth is enormous. When schools are closed due to lack of power or inaccessible roads, many working parents are forced to stay home and miss work. 

"Further, the current power outages in Westchester point to another looming crisis: 25% of our energy supply will go offline in 2021 when Indian Point closes. We need a real plan ensuring that we have reliable, affordable energy sources so we don’t get stuck with significant power problems--and even higher taxes! 

"Government's primary role is to keep its citizens safe. Westchester's hard-working families deserve answers and to have the peace of mind of knowing that this will not happen again next time. Protecting Westchester families will be my top priority in the State Senate." 

Killian will run on the Republican, Conservative, and Reform Party lines in the special election for New York State Senate District 37 on April 24. Senate District 37 comprises the towns and municipalities of Armonk, Bedford, Bronxville, Crestwood, Eastchester, Harrison, Katonah, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, North Castle, New Rochelle, Port Chester, Rye City, 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.
