Nine candidates have been elected to join the School Board Nominating Committee. Two Quaker Ridge ballots need to be validated by the Westchester Board of Elections before the outcome of the Quaker Ridge election can be determined.
The following candidates were elected:
Edgewood: Felicia Block and Elizabeth Massey
Fox Meadow: Katherine Cutlip and Susanne Vleck
Greenacres: Mitchell Kahn and Amy Lewis
Heathcote: Lawrence Patrizio and Sanford Plachter
Quaker Ridge: Colleen Brown. We cannot determine whether Greg Alkalay or Cindy Iver will be elected until two ballots are validated by the Westchester Board of Elections.
A total of 355 votes were cast in the election, of which 75 were absentee ballots.
Here is the breakdown of votes cast by neighborhood:
Fox Meadow: 107
Quaker Ridge: 74
This year’s new members will join the existing 20 members of the committee, serving staggered three-year terms. The committee will have its first meeting on January 29 and by the end of March it will nominate two candidates for the Scarsdale Board of Education to fill the seats currently held by Scott Silberfein and Christopher Morin. Both Silberfein and Morin are completing their first three-year terms and are eligible for re-nomination. All Scarsdale residents are welcome to propose Board of Education candidates to the SBNC. The SBNC Board of Education candidates, along with any other candidates who may choose to run, will stand for public election in May at the same time as the school budget vote.
