We Must Stand Together

The double whammy by the Supreme Court this week is a call to action for all of us who care about not only gun safety and our privacy rights, but also our Democracy.  Our liberties and rights continue to be under a withering attack. Complacency cannot be an option.  Active (and respectful) engagement is required on all levels – Federal, State, and Local. 

We will update you on opportunities to get involved. 

Only one day of early voting left.  Don’t forget to early vote in the Democratic Primary tomorrow (Sunday, June 26) from 10 am to 6 pm.  Or vote on Primary Day, Tuesday, June 28th from 6 am to 9 pm.

Remember that Richard Litman, Andrew Spatz and Dan Natchez are the 3 candidates endorsed by the duly constituted Mamaroneck Village Democratic Committee whose membership is duly elected and certified with the Westchester County Board of Elections.

Voting matters. The Truth matters.  Transparency matters. 

Democracy matters.

Hey! Mayor Murphy!

You may have received an email from Mayor Murphy about our Democratic primary.  We would like to share with you our questions for him.

Hey Mayor Murphy: 

You wrote that “I need these board members by my side.”   Are you working to get three candidates elected because you think they will never disagree with you?  Are you concerned that voters might elect Trustees who have experience and solutions to problems who would work in the best interests of the entire Village rather than your personal agenda? 

When trustees fully discuss issues in a transparent and collaborative manner, do you view this as “impeding movement” or “opposing progress”?

We agree that flood mitigation is a priority, but why are you supporting three candidates with no significant environmental or governmental experience particularly when we have three Democratic candidates with extensive experience in these areas? 

“Under-handed tactics” and “distortions of truth”?  Really?  Check out the latest fliers from your team and Lou Young’s angry rants on Facebook.  Why have you made this primary ugly and divisive?

When it comes to the Black Lives Matter Mural, why are you criticizing rather than thanking Dan Natchez and the other trustees who knew it was essential to wait two weeks and fix the wording of the resolution?  Why did you vote for the resolution that would have made the Village vulnerable to supporting hate speech?  (And by the way, this saved the Village from potential additional litigation on your watch).  

But most of all, why all the angry and personal attacks? 

Before you vote, Tom, take the time to watch the League of Women Voter’s Forum:   https://lmcmedia.org/2022/05/18/meet-the-candidates-primaries-2022/

Black Live Matter Mural Repainting

Black Lives Matter Mural is being Repainted as Part of OneMamaroneck’s Juneteenth Celebration, Saturday, June 18.

We thank Trustees Dan Natchez, Nora Lucas and Victor Tafur for protecting the Village and voting against a hasty proposal that would have opened the door to all kinds of hate speech on Village property.  They insisted that the Board of Trustees take an extra two weeks to develop and adopt a policy to ensure that the mural was government speech and not private speech.  Now Mamaroneck is protected from any demands of the Nazi Party, KKK, and other vile hate groups* since government speech can be regulated (by policy) but private speech cannot.

Thoughtful policy making is what this Village needs.

For more information about how you can participate in tomorrow’s Juneteenth Celebration and support REALM (Recognizing Enslaved Africans of Larchmont and Mamaroneck), go to:  https://onemamaroneck.org/events

Richard Litman, Andrew Spatz and Trustee Dan Natchez hope to see you there!

*The delay in approving the Black Lives Matter mural was to ensure that it was government speech and not private speech.  See https://www.npr.org/2022/05/02/1095943871/supreme-court-says-boston-unconstitutionally-barred-christian-flag-from-city-hal for more information.  In the recent Supreme Court decision Justice Breyer wrote: “The key was to what extent Boston actually controlled the messages on the flags. And the answer, he said, was not at all. The city's lack of meaningful involvement, he said, led the court to conclude that these flag raisings were not government speech—where the government can control its message—but private speech, in fact religious speech, that cannot be regulated by the government.”

Here is why experiance really matters!

Here’s why Experience Matters, watch Litman, Spatz and Natchez at the league of Women Voter’s Forum.

On June 15, the Larchmont-Mamaroneck League of Women Voters hosted a debate for the six candidates vying for three spots on the Democratic ticket for Village of Mamaroneck Trustee. Key questions focused on flooding and capital expenditure issues as well as asking candidates to identify their priorities.  Candidates also spoke about community inclusion and quality of life issues. 

Democratic endorsed candidates Richard Litman, Andrew Spatz, and Dan Natchez showed why #Because Experience Matters is a fitting slogan for their ticket.  Fiscal responsibility and smart budget management proposed by Richard, Dan, and Andrew were the clear take-aways of the debate.  As a sitting Trustee, Dan provided specifics about how to efficiently and transparently allocate tax dollars on capital projects.  Richard’s summary of his decades of high-level governmental experience provided keen insights into the steady hand that he would apply to Village leadership.  And Andrew’s recap of his extensive volunteerism in the community and expertise on Village flood mitigation and quality of life concerns made him stand out.  Answers provided by the three other opposition candidates were largely confined to pre-programmed generalities and tired political criticism.  The opponents’ participation in the debate re-enforced their lack of relevant experience and highlighted their overall lack of understanding of the challenges facing our community.   Their reliance on Tom Murphy was also concerning.

How to wisely spend your tax dollars.

Property owners are painfully aware that their Village real estate taxes have effectively soared since Trump and the GOP took away the income tax deduction.  How can our real estate taxes be reined in at the local level?  Commitment and hard work by an experienced team. 

One simple solution:   an in-house Village attorney who can manage litigation.  Costly billable hours and avoidable litigation have increased the legal fees we pay with our tax dollars.  Other solutions include competitive bidding and prioritizing our expenditures. 

The Democratic Endorsed Candidates, Richard Litman, Andrew Spatz and Dan Natchez are committed to a comprehensive spending plan that will preserve services and accomplish vital capital projects such as flood mitigation, sewer infrastructure to protect water quality, systematic road re-paving, and maintenance of recreational facilities (such as playgrounds, seawall, docks, and a dog park) to keep and improve our quality of life.    

Please watch both Meet the Candidates Videos at LMC Media and see for yourself which team has the knowledge and experience to lead the Village of Mamaroneck.
