Letter to the Editor: Mark E. Jennings, Jr. on Village Election March 21 PDF Print Email

To the Editor:


Mar. 15, 2017:  With a young growing family, we moved back to Bronxville from Bermuda because of the way it was managed. We are supporting the current trustees, Bob Underhill and Randy Mayer, and Mayor Mary Marvin.

We've seen first-hand how ill-advised decisions have damaged otherwise pleasant communications. Bob, Randy, and Mary have served the community over the years in many capacities and proven their deep knowledge of Bronxville and their ability to work hard on our behalf.

While all politics is local, we have been heartened by both the lack of partisanship and the willingness of our board members to work hard for villagers in a very open and collegial manner. The village has consistently appointed and/or elected a wide variety of citizens to serve on its many volunteer boards.

Our current trustees are an excellent example of how the village brings together dedicated, longtime residents who have varying points of view, speak openly and independently, and use their skills to benefit us all.

Villages and towns all across New York State are under tremendous economic pressure. And, while we appreciate the willingness of a new resident, Ms. Calderon, to offer her services, the stakes are very high. One wrong decision and property values suffer, as well as our standard of living here in our small village.

We feel far more secure with our longtime resident trustees and mayor who have successfully navigated very complex issues. Our high property values are proof of their wise choices.

We plan on voting for Mayor Mary Marvin and trustees Randy Mayer and Bob Underhill in the March 21 election.

Mark E. Jennings, Jr.

To the Editor:


Mar. 15, 2017:  I am writing to endorse Bob Underhill and Randy Mayer for re-election as trustees of the Village of Bronxville. 

I have known and worked with both of them and know well their qualifications to serve.

They are extremely knowledgeable of village affairs and also understand the sometimes-difficult relationship with New York State, which dictates how a village must operate to a much greater degree than many people know. The importance of their knowledge cannot be understated.

Both of them during their terms in office have worked tirelessly for our village.

They are without question the best and most qualified for the job.

Please support them in the upcoming village election on March 21.

Former Trustee, Village of Bronxville

To the Editor:


Mar. 8, 2017:  I’m supporting Elizabeth Calderon for Bronxville Village trustee, and I urge my friends and neighbors to do the same when they go to the polls at Bronxville Village Hall on March 21.

As the only Democrat on the ballot, Elizabeth brings a wealth of experience to the trustee position and will bring a fresh perspective to the board.

She is a born-and-bred New Yorker and has years of expertise in managing budgets, maintaining infrastructure, and community governance. As an attorney and registered nurse, Elizabeth has spent her lifetime dedicated to others and will bring that spirit of altruism and pragmatism to her job as trustee.

When you cast your vote on March 21, please elect Elizabeth Calderon.

Dear Bronxville Voters:


Mar. 8, 2017:  I write to ask for your support for the re-election of my colleagues Deputy Mayor Bob Underhill and trustee Randy Mayer at the upcoming village election on March 21.

Quite simply, Bob and Randy are the finest colleagues one could have. They are caring, intelligent, ethical beyond reproach, and dedicated stewards of the village they love.

Having raised families here, they have a breadth of understanding combined with incredible business acumen. 

With difficult budget negotiations under way, an extensive FEMA flood mitigation project near completion, and the Kensington development reaching fruition after 30 years of trying, their skills as a real estate developer and a municipal bond attorney have proven invaluable.

It has been an honor and a privilege to work side by side with such capable and selfless public servants.

The value of the hundreds of hours they have given to the village they know and love is beyond measure.

I ask your support for these men of enormous integrity, vision, and skill.

Sincerely yours,

Mary C. Marvin
Mayor of Bronxville

To the Editor:


Mar. 8, 2017:  As a young and growing family, my husband and I moved back to Bronxville six years ago. It was important for us to re-establish our roots in a safe, well managed community. 

Currently, villages and towns all across New York State are under tremendous economic pressure, and the stakes are high.

I feel far more secure with longtime residents like our trustees and mayor, who have served our community in a myriad of capacities, successfully navigated complex issues, and proven their deep knowledge of Bronxville greatly benefitting our village. 

On March 21, I will cast my vote for Mayor Mary Marvin and trustees Randy Mayer and Bob Underhill.
