The Port Chester Board of Trustees (BOT) passed a resolution at the February 5th meeting creating a Resident Advisory Commission to advise the BOT on the selection of a new electoral system for village elections. First proposed by the Alliance, the commission will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various voting methods available and will report back to the board. Details of how the commission will work are still being finessed. This is a win for the Alliance and all our members and supporters who turned out to BOT meetings or wrote to the Board to make sure it happened. With our perseverance, the issue of voting method has risen to the top of the agenda for the board and we have made sure the voices of community members are central in the debate.
