Scarsdale is a very special community, but it is at an important crossroads. Many residents have lost confidence in Village government, Village administrators and staff, and the judgment and leadership of the Mayor and Trustees, especially following the disastrous 2016 JF Ryan property tax revaluation. Empty nesters, the bedrock of the community, are leaving because of the ever-increasing property tax burden and the misallocation of that tax burden. I am running for Mayor of Scarsdale, because I want to contribute my experience, knowledge of Village issues, judgment, and the vision to regain the public’s confidence and to assure that Village government serves our community in a user friendly and fiscally responsible manner. I have been working and will continue to work hard to earn your vote.
