Bob has expert knowledge and skills that would be tremendous assets for our board of trustees, especially at a time when the village is facing serious fiscal issues. He has a Ph.D. in economics and extensive experience in the financial services industry. He is head of analytics at a successful financial risk management firm that he co-founded and that includes banks, insurance companies and government agencies and regulators among its client base.
A primary concern for Bob is maintaining the affordability of living in Scarsdale. The steep reduction in the SALT deduction has increased housing expense and depressed real estate values. As trustee, Bob would aggressively pursue efforts to address these deleterious effects. And he would be very judicious in assessing the Freightway redevelopment project, which could bring additional residential apartments to the village.
