To my fellow residents and friends,
BRONXVILLE, NY — August 12, 2020 — I felt compelled to write to say thank you to all of you on Tanglewylde Avenue, Parkway Road, The Byway, The High Road, Homesdale Road, North Way, the Hilltop and in so many other corners of the village who were without power for almost a week but handled it with grace, patience, kindness, a needed touch of humor, and an appreciation of the sometimes absurd.
It is such a testament to our village. It’s why it is such an enormous honor to be your Mayor. I continue to stand in awe of the people I am privileged to serve.
I want to express particular gratitude to Jim Palmer, our village Administrator, who spent his entire weekend in the village chasing down power crews. He even delivered pizzas to the incredible gentlemen from Washington State who worked on Tanglewylde Avenue and Library Lane at day’s end.
Everyone in village government gave it their all to make sure that we got service as fast as we possibly could for you.
This week can serve as a template of how a village of fine people can handle things with unity and grace.
Deep felt thanks,
Mary C. Marvin is the mayor of the Village of Bronxville, New York. Share your thoughts by directing email to firstname.lastname@example.org
