Upcoming Event -- Village Election System Information Session and Consensus Meeting

Monday, December 9, 2019
10:30 a.m. at Village Hall, 3rd Floor Meeting Room

LWVS will hold its annual general membership information session regarding this year's Citizens Nominating Committee (CNC) election. Madelaine Eppenstein will be present to answer questions on behalf of the Scarsdale Procedure Committee. All members of the public are welcome to attend.

The Procedure Committee is the body that solicits candidates for CNC, proposes amendments to the Resolution, and runs the CNC election and referendum on the amendments, if any. The CNC is the body that vets applicants and nominates the proposed slate for the Village Board of Trustees, including Mayor. The Non-Partisan Resolution is the document that governs the Village's non-partisan election system.

A consensus discussion will immediately follow the information session for purposes of making recommendations to the Procedure Committee. Only League members may be present for the consensus discussion.

For more information, please contact Diane Baylor, LWVS Village Election System Chair, at LWVS.ves@gmail.com.
