New Sign in Town

There's a new sign in town! On November 8, turn over your ballot and vote YES on Referendum Propositions # 1 and #2.



Justice Eckers Rules in Favor of Village Voters

Thursday, October 27, was a great day for democracy in the Village. The NYS Supreme Court dismissed the Mayor’s lawsuit against the Village, enabling voting to go forward on Propositions Numbers One and Two. Voters will now be able to decide whether to enact two important laws passed by the Board of Trustees last month.

Justice Lawrence H. Ecker of the Ninth Judicial District clearly stated that the Board and the Village met the spirit and letter of the law in conducting Village business. Mayor Norman Rosenblum, in bringing suit against the Village Clerk, Board of Trustees, and Westchester Board of Elections, claimed that the two laws were passed at an “illegal” Board meeting. This claim was a smoke screen for blocking voter choice.

Justice Ecker ruled that Mayor Rosenblum did not have legal standing as Mayor to sue the Village, but granted him standing as a resident in order to consider the merits of the case.

Mayor Rosenblum sues the Village

On October 17, Mayor Rosenblum filed a lawsuit against the Village of Mamaroneck Clerk, the Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees, and the Westchester County Board of Elections, in order to block the public's ability to vote on two local referendum propositions placed on the ballot by a majority vote of the Board of Trustees at a September 6 meeting. The lawsuit was filed with the NYS Supreme Court in Westchester County, and a hearing was scheduled for Wednesday, October 26, but subsequently moved to Thursday, October 27.

The Mayor alleged that the meeting was "illegal" and that the two referendum propositions should be removed from the November ballot.
