BRONXVILLE NON-PARTISAN COMMITTEE SEEKS NEW MEMBERS
The Bronxville Committee for Non-Partisan Nomination and Election of School Trustees (the “NPC”) is seeking candidates for new members. The NPC was formed in 1936 to foster the election of Trustees of the Bronxville School on a non-partisan basis. Each spring, the NPC solicits nomination applications from residents, who are interested in serving as School Trustee, and then nominates and supports a slate of candidates to run in the school district election in May.
The NPC has 21 members, comprised of three elected representatives from each of the Village’s seven voting districts who serve staggered three-year terms. Each spring, the NPC conducts elections for the open seats in each district. The members elected this spring officially commence service July 2015.
The NPC meets on most Tuesday nights at 7:30pm from January through March to identify and review candidates for nomination as School Board Trustees. After the BOE nominees have been selected in March the Committee meets through the beginning of June, as needed, to identify potential candidates for membership on the NPC and to conduct other business.
Interested residents can have their names placed on the ballot for election to the NPC by submitting an application to the NPC by 5pm on April 30, 2015. Residents can obtain contact information for all current NPC members and an application on the NPC website: www.bronxvillenpc.com. To be eligible to serve on the NPC, an applicant must be at least eighteen years of age, have lived in Bronxville for at least one year, and cannot be an elected official of the Village, officer of a political party, or currently seeking elective office in either the Village or a political party. Interested applicants are encouraged to attend the NPC’s Meet the Trustee Nominees Reception on April 28 at 7:30pm, at the Bronxville Field Club, to see the NPC process firsthand and meet the current committee members.
