Hi Annette - Not sure why you make reference to Indivisible, since I am writing only on my own behalf. Anyway, now the Daily News, in a very balanced editorial, also backs Meyer:

"Never mind the millions of dollars of attack ads depicting Shelley Mayer as a corrupt crony Democrat and Julie Killian as a Trump-robot Republican. The candidates in next Tuesday’s Westchester special election for state Senate are both accomplished, competent women.

"While both would be marked improvements over the depressingly low caliber of senators we have suffered under, our endorsement goes to Mayer, who has a stronger stand on the need to clean up the sewer that is the state Capitol.

"Unfortunately, Killian does not back closing the LLC fundraising loophole, which lets unlimited amounts of money flood into campaigns through shell corporations. Nor does she want to end or even limit outside income, one of the most corrupting, corrosive forces in the state Legislature."

Just as Indivisible misrepresents itself as non-partisan, it's not and pretends that long time NY politician Shelley Mayer has clean hands, she doesn't. She has had years to 'fix' things- no more excuses!
When presented with challenges, Killian worked constructively to overcome them, regardless of Party. Mayer's track record is rife with cronyism and corruption, whereas Killian's is positive, possessing forward-thinking accomplishments .

The New York Times endorses Shelley Mayer in this race. Although the Times makes some compelling arguments, the endorsement is somewhat partisan. Here are a few not-so-partisan reasons to support her:

Experience: Shelley has been an outstanding representative for Yonkers. Yes, she is an effective "Albany insider." To allege that she is therefore corrupt is a flabby argument and reflects a lack of respect for Westchester voters.

Pragmatic: Mayer's positions on issues are centrist, from gun safety to environmental protection to advocacy for women's rights. Despite bizarre claims in TV ads and mailers, she has been quite prudent in fiscal matters.

Integrity: Shelley is a calm, balanced and focused problem solver. She has also been one of Albany's strongest advocates for campaign finance reform, which has repeatedly been blocked by Senate Republicans.

For these and other reasons, I am proud to support Shelley for Senate.

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.
