Letter to the Community in Support of Miki Kapoor For Bronxville School Board

May 5, 2021

Dear Bronxville Village Residents,

We, the undersigned individuals, write to you today to encourage you to vote on May 18th for School Board Candidate and Non-Partisan Committee (NPC) endorsed nominee, Miki Kapoor. We all have had the experience of working directly with Miki in Bronxville across various Bronxville committees and initiatives, and feel that our collective experiences working with Miki provide us the insights needed to comment on his candidacy.

Miki is a father of three children and has lived in Bronxville for the past 8 years. His two oldest children attend the Bronxville Elementary School (2nd and 4th grades) while his youngest is in pre-school.

We have witnessed firsthand Miki’s leadership and commitment to service working alongside him on the Bronxville Police Community Relations Committee, the Bronxville Unity March, or the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee of the Bronxville School. We feel strongly that he is the best candidate to join the Bronxville School Board. This past summer, Miki was instrumental in organizing the Bronxville Unity March that drew thousands of participants from the area. Miki functioned as a linchpin to the entire endeavor as he was able to build consensus amongst village, school, and community leaders and voice our unified desire to march against racial injustice. On the heels of the successful event, Miki was selected to be a part of the Police Community Relations Committee where he was an involved committee member, delving into important issues facing our police force. He also served on the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee of the Bronxville School ensuring that diverse views are valued and heard within the school.

In addition to his strong record of community service, Miki has been a successful healthcare executive acting as CEO, President, co-founder, and board member for several healthcare companies that have been acquired and gone public while he has been at the helm. His leadership and experience landed him seats on institutional and civic boards including the boards of other healthcare companies, the board of a hospital, and the board of a large community health center for underprivileged families without access to healthcare in the Bronx and Harlem. Miki has also served as Executive Vice President for the Clinton Foundation while living in India and leading healthcare operations for Africa and India. Miki has been valued by these organizations for his ability to navigate complicated challenges, build consensus, execute new ideas, and manage the financial and operational structures necessary for long-term success.

The Bronxville School community would be lucky to have Miki as a board member. We recognize his leadership, diverse ideas, financial acumen, moral compass, and willingness to listen to and work with the community as valuable traits for such an important role within the community.

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.
