The League of Women Voters and Mothers Out Front co-sponsored a virtual Candidates Forum for candidates for mayor and trustee in the Village of Tarrytown.
The Forum was conducted via a Zoom webinar on Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021. The mayoral candidates appeared from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and the trustee candidates from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
The public was able to register to view the Forum at http://bit.ly/tarryCF. A live Spanish translation was also available to attendees.
Attendees could not participate in the Forum but were allowed to submit questions in advance at the time of registration. Questions were reviewed by a committee of League members and Tarrytown residents who then submitted them to the moderator of the Forum.
There are three candidates in the mayoral race: current trustees Karen Brown (D, Tarrytown United), and Douglas Zollo (Village Alliance); and Paul Janos (Preserve our Village). The Democratic and Tarrytown United candidates for trustee are David Kim (incumbent), Rebecca N. McGovern (incumbent), and Effie G. Phillips-Staley. The Preserve Our Village candidates for trustee are Stanley Friedlander, Monica Reyes-Grajales, and Mark Weinstein. The Village Alliance candidates for trustee are Peter Bartolacci, Ida Doctor, and Terence Murphy.
The Forum will be available for subsequent viewing through Election Day, Tuesday, November 2, 2021, on YouTube. Viewers can access YouTube’s language interpretation service to hear the forum in Spanish and other languages. The link to view the Forum will be on the Rivertowns League of Women Voters website at www.lwv-rivertowns.org.
