Letter to Community Supporting Jason Curran for Bronxville School Board

May 10, 2023

To All Bronxville Community Members,

We believe that Bronxville deserves to have a choice for its Board of Education and, of the possible choice, Jason will be the greatest voice and advocate for our children. He is a qualified school board candidate and we believe he is the best person for this position.

Here's what we think sets him apart:

Jay believes that our school should be a place where all students feel safe and experience a sense of belonging, which will help our students live the Bronxville Promise and prepare them for successful lives outside of Bronxville. He will always put the interests of students and faculty at the heart of the Board's business.

Jay is a centrist. Humble yet confident, measured yet passionate, he understands that our school is excellent and that it can always do better. 

He is a consensus builder who will listen to everyone, thoughtfully participate in difficult conversations and work to find common ground across perspectives. He will be a voice and an advocate for ALL.

He's actively involved in the community. Jay's experience on the Community Fund Board is impressive - he willingly took on the time-consuming job as Co-Chair of the Grants Committee which distributes over $500,000 annually.  Jay has proven that he is willing to get into the weeds and put in the work for the benefit of our Village.

Having lived in the Village for a decade, Jay knows all three schools -- there is simply no substitute for actual experience when it comes to making decisions for our school district as a whole.

Jay's full bio can be viewed here so you can learn more about his professional expertise and capacity not only to fulfill but also exceed the expectations of our community.

We provide our fullest support to Jay and ask that you vote for Jay on May 16th.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

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.
