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

May 12, 2021

Dear Bronxville Village Residents,

We are a group of more than 200 Village residents who are asking you to vote on Tuesday, May 18th for Non-Partisan Committee-endorsed candidate, Miki Kapoor, for School Board Trustee. We know Miki well, some professionally, some personally, some through his work at the Bronxville School, and some through the Non-Partisan Committee (NPC) process.  

Miki and his wife have lived in Bronxville for eight years and he is an active and involved father to his three children. Miki is intelligent, level-headed, community-minded, strategic, fiscally-responsible, and exceedingly competent. As a deeply engaged member of our community, we know how much he cares about maintaining what makes Bronxville so special.

Miki has the proven track-record of professional accomplishments necessary for this position. After almost ten successful years on Wall Street, Miki founded and/or served as President or CEO of three healthcare companies. Prior to that, he was the Executive Vice President for health systems operations at the Clinton Foundation.

In addition, Miki has the necessary leadership experience for this position. He has served on multiple professional and volunteer boards and committees, and is a current member of both a Bronxville School curriculum committee and the Bronxville Police Community Relations Committee.

Lastly, Miki has the academic credentials necessary for this position. He received his MBA in Finance and MPH in Health Policy from Yale. He is a Fulbright Fellow and was a visiting professor at two universities.

There are only seven school board seats and it is important that we have highly qualified, trusted, and dedicated trustees in each position. The NPC has contributed to shaping 85 years of strong Boards in Bronxville, a Board whose governance has and must continue to attract talented administrators and teachers. The 21 Bronxville NPC members are elected representatives who conduct a rigorous process to find, vet, interview and endorse candidates for the school board. The NPC strives to find people like Miki Kapoor and Susan Conniff who are accomplished professionally, as well as have a demonstrated commitment to the community's smooth functioning. You can find more about the NPC at: www.bronxvillenpc.com.

It is our hope, in electing School Board members, that we consider a candidate who not only has the academic and professional experiences needed, but one who has volunteered his time and has continuously shown passion and commitment to our community for years. You will find this dedication in Miki; a proven leader who will make responsible decisions for our school, our children and our community for years to come. Miki Kapoor has earned the endorsement of the NPC and has the credentials, competence and character necessary for School Board Trustee. As such, we endorse him without reservation and urge you to come out and vote for him on May 18th at the school.

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.
