Dear Neighbors –
As a registered Democrat, I am writing to let you know that I will be enthusiastically voting (absentee!) to re-elect Mayor Jennifer Monachino-Lapey, Deputy Mayor Angela Michelle De Lillo and Trustee/Fire Commissioner Joe Senerchia.
Like so many of my neighbors, I moved to Pelham when I started my family because of the idyllic environment it provides my family which I found so astonishingly close to New York City. My two boys (now 20 and 21) attended Prospect Hill Elementary School enjoying the confidence-building experiences of safely walking to school, friends’ houses and over to Four Corners; playing in a variety of our well-run community sports programs; and, later, thriving in the supportive home-grown music scene for my budding musician.
For myself, buying a house was the biggest investment I had ever made. I watch closely how our public services are maintained, what investments are made in our infrastructure, the performance of our school district and the community culture underpinning the fabric of our lives here.
As a single mom and small business owner working in the Arts, it matters a great deal to me that our Village is being led by qualified and committed neighbors who have a demonstrated track record of providing quality services and responsible financial management. Beyond their stewardship, I know that Jennifer, Michelle & Joe have an eye on our future. They are always willing to explore and consider new options and opportunities on behalf of our small community.
These are good people who have worked hard for our community. They enjoy my full support, and I hope yours as well.
