By Staff, Bronxville Committee for the Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees


May 23, 2018:  The Bronxville Committee for the Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees ("NPC") announced the names of the individuals who have applied to be placed on the ballot for election to the NPC. One representative from each of Bronxville’s seven voting districts will be elected to serve a three-year term. This year, Districts 18 and 21 will each elect a representative to serve a one-year term to replace members who are unable to complete the final year of their term.

The candidates seeking membership on the NPC are Helen Knapp (District 16); Lianne de Serres (District 17); Greg Gilliam (District 18, 3-year term); Jeff Hine (District 18, 1-year term); Thomas Hansen (District 19); Katie McGrath (District 20); Rich Gegenwarth (District 21, 3-year term); Lee Huang (District 21, 1-year term); and Susan Meaney (District 22).

Voting began on May 19 and continues through June 2 via online ballot. All adult residents of Bronxville are eligible and encouraged to vote for the representative in their district and for two representatives in Districts 18 and 21. Details about the voting process, including brief bios and statements from each candidate, are available on the NPC website: www.bronxvillenpc.com.

Once elected, the nine new members of the NPC will join the twelve remaining members. Together, the people who serve on the NPC work to recruit, vet, and nominate the school board trustee candidates each year.

The NPC was formed in 1936 to foster the election of trustees of The Bronxville School on a non-partisan basis. The NPC, which consists of three elected representatives from each of Bronxville's seven election districts, solicits qualified residents who are interested in serving as school trustee and nominates a slate of candidates to run in the school-district election each May.
