Letter to the Editor from Mayor Mary Marvin on Village Election March 21 PDF Print Email

alt


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.

Letter to the Editor: Joan Steube on Snow Removal by Bronxville DPW PDF Print Email

To the Editor:


Feb. 22, 2017:  I would like to thank the Bronxville DPW crew for keeping Bronxville so clean and for the great job they did after a big snow dump.

I am in a wheelchair and so I always look at the snow removal, salt, and sand on ice. 

Bravo to those responsible for the snow removal after the last storm [February 8].

I have never seen a better job.

Thank you.

Letter to the Editor: Maggie Marrone of Bronxville Beautification Council Thanking Generous Donors PDF Print Email

To the Editor:


Dec. 14, 2016:  As fall turns to winter and we start planning for the spring, the Bronxville Beautification Council (BBC) wishes to acknowledge all of our generous donors, with special thanks to the Gedney Farms Nursery in White Plains for the excellent work they did to help make this year's plantings such a huge success.

The year 2016 has been an especially good year for our projects. Due to weather conditions and the numerous irrigation and soil improvements the BBC has undertaken over the past few years, the flowers we planted were not only dense and full, but exceptionally long lasting. Due to a particularly mild fall, we are just now beginning to remove the annuals from our village beds and planting thousands of tulip bulbs. Look forward to a beautiful spring bloom!

For Bronxvillagers not familiar with our efforts, the BBC is a nonprofit organization in charge of the planting and maintenance of the following village public areas:

       1. Islands around the village business district 

       2. Railroad banks surrounding the underpass
  
       3. Large pots on the hospital side of the train station 

       4. Fountain circle in the middle of the village roundabout 

       5. Landscaping in front of the Bronxville Post Office
 
The BBC is completely funded by donations from our generous citizens. Save the date for our next fundraiser, a reception in a magnificent Bronxville garden, to be held on June 10, 2017. Tax-deductible donations to the BBC are greatly appreciated year round and can be mailed to Bronxville Beautification Council, PO Box 127, Bronxville, NY 10708.

Letter to the Editor: Michele Ruhm on Election Civility PDF Print Email

To the Editor:


Nov. 2, 2016:  This 2016 election cycle has resulted in nation-wide anxiety. Almost no one likes or trusts the two main candidates--many people actually fear one or both. And yet on November 8 they will have to go to the polls and vote for one of them to be the next president of the United States. 

What is particularly troubling is that many people seem to demonize those who have made a choice differing from theirs. Most people have thoughtfully made a choice between two historically unpopular candidates--often based on who they think will do the least damage. (What a terrible assessment to have to make when voting for the president of this great country.) It's important to recognize the integrity of others' decisions, even when we disagree with them.

The election is Tuesday, November 8. On November 9, things will not get better. Whatever the outcome, we need to treat each other with respect and civility. Now more than ever, we need to work together.
