Westchester County Legislator Ruth Walter Thanks Voters And Sets Forth Priorities PDF Print Email


By Ruth Walter, Westchester County Legislator for District 15

Jan. 15, 2020:  As I begin my first term as Westchester County Legislator for District 15, I am so grateful for the trust that voters have placed in me, resoundingly in Bronxville, where I earned 64% of the vote.

Elsewhere in the district, we also were extremely successful, with Yonkers Ward 12 results even higher (65%) and four other Wards decisively voting Team Ruth. What an extremely thrilling campaign and so many of you working by my side to effect real and positive change!

Turnout for this election was up 74% from the comparable election in 2015. Voters are paying attention!

I campaigned on improving the environment, promoting small businesses, and increasing safety in our schools, homes, and businesses.

I will be proposing County-wide initiatives in these areas as well as working collaboratively with federal, state, and local officials to bring attention to our local problems like flooding on the Bronx River Parkway and along the Saw Mill River.

I will also transform our office into a robust constituent services operation that will help residents navigate the different levels of their government.

I want residents to feel ownership of the laws and the departments of Westchester County and to be newly energized to participate as voters, citizens, and neighbors.

I promise to represent Yonkers and Bronxville with integrity, diligence, and responsiveness.

Thank you again for your support!

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.
