The Village of Mamaroneck Democratic Party is proud to announce its candidates for the fall election. Mayor Kathy Savolt and Trustee Randi Robinowitz will run for re-election to their second terms and Trustee Nick Allison, recently appointed to the board, will run for election this November 3rd.
Mayor Savolt highlighted some of the board’s accomplishments. “We’ve reduced legal expenses, hired a professional Village Manager and Village Attorney and worked hard to control costs. By consolidating the Senior Center with the Town of Mamaroneck we have achieved a savings of $300,000 and we are actively working on other areas to reduce costs.” An area of particular pride for the mayor is the environment. She stated, “The Village has taken aggressive steps to reduce its carbon footprint and recycling has increased dramatically. We have instituted regular maintenance of our rivers as well as a waterway cleanup and GIS mapping and are tackling our land use laws in order to reduce flooding.”
Mayor Savolt has been endorsed by the NY League of Conservation Voters.
“Although we have been in office less than two years there has already been tremendous progress,” said Trustee Robinowitz. “This board has worked well as a team to restore civility and efficiency to Village board meetings as well as making it easier for citizens to access information with a user-friendly Village website. A lot has been accomplished but there is still a great deal of work to be done.”
Ms. Robinowitz, an active 11-year volunteer with the Rye Neck PTSA who also has thirty years of business experience, wants another term in order to keep the Village moving forward.
Trustee Nick Allison was appointed to the Village board after Mayor Savolt called for interested citizens to apply for the open seat. “My experience as an IT manager highlights the importance of having systems and procedures in place to help the Village control costs and provide the best possible services to the residents. I am eager to continue our work as a board in order to preserve the character of our Village while also achieving efficiencies to save tax dollars.” Trustee Allison represents the Village of Mamaroneck on the Tri-Municipal Consolidation and Shared Services Committee.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 3rd.
