SBNC Joint Committee Proposes Change to the Non-Partisan Resolution and Announces Public Meeting on November 25
SBNC Administrative Committee Reminds Prospective Candidates of November 19 Petition Deadline and Announces Election To Be Held on January 15, 2014
The Joint Committee of the Scarsdale School Board Nominating Committee is proposing an amendment to its Non-Partisan Resolution. Each year, the Joint Committee convenes to consider whether to make changes to its Resolution after the SBNC election. This year, the Committee is proposing to clarify the definition of a “Qualified Voter” as described in Article VI of the Resolution.
All Scarsdale residents are invited to a public meeting to discuss this proposed change on Monday, November 25, 2013 at 7.30 pm in the Scott Room at the Scarsdale Public Library. SBNC candidates are also encouraged to attend this meeting to learn more about how the SBNC works.
The deadline for SBNC candidates to submit an application (comprised of a Biographical Form and a Petition) is November 19, 2013. The SBNC Administrative Committee encourages interested parties to submit applications and stand for election. Application forms and additional information are available on the SBNC website at http://scarsdalesbnc.com/join-the-sbnc/.
After receiving public comment on the change to the Resolution, the Joint Committee will finalize the language for its proposed amendment by December 19, 2013. The election to vote on the amendment, and to vote for this year’s SBNC members, will be on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 in the Scarsdale Middle School auditorium lobby from 7:00 am to 10:00 am and from 2:00pm to 9:00pm.
Copies of the proposed amendment are available on the SBNC website at: http://scarsdalesbnc.com/resolution/. Hard copies are also available at the Reference Desk of the Scarsdale Library and in the brochure racks in the lobby of Village Hall.
We urge all interested parties to consider seeking election to the SBNC and all members of the community to consider this proposed amendment and, most importantly, to vote in the election on January 15, 2014.
