Pelham Manor election dates are a-synchronous with federal & state elections because local Village governance is distinct and separate from national and state issues. Local control allows for a bigger voice for each of our neighbors. We should avoid the easy temptation of making wholesale changes during a sweep of impassioned politics. This year - more than ever - we are reminded of the sound logic of this approach. Our Village has been managed with the best interests of all of our neightbors in mind. This approach has been so successful in making this a vibrant and safe community. Pelham Manor leadership is about the stewardship of our Village, for the long term.
As we accelerate the modernization of our Village, we cannot discard the mechanisms in place that have safeguarded it.
