“The NPC appreciates all the individuals who were elected and welcomes these new members, said Jennifer Mackesy, NPC Chair. “We also thank the Bronxville residents who participated in this important election. In addition, we thank the following retiring NPC members for their service to the Bronxville community: Romy Coquillette, Jane Moynihan, Sheila Stoltz, Richard Thomas, Craig Unis, Joseph Villanueva, Elizabeth Vranka, Tracy Walsh, and Amy Wiser.”
The NPC also announced the following officers for next year: Steve Kraemer, Chair; Jennifer Lescott, Vice Chair; Tara Saridakis, Secretary; and Jim Fowler, Treasurer.
The Committee for the Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees was formed in 1936 for the purpose of electing trustees to 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 board trustees and nominates a slate of candidates to run in the school district election in May.
