(Pelham Manor) – The Manor Together Party, in conjunction with County Executive George Latimer and the Town of Pelham Democratic Committee, will hold its campaign launch on Sunday, February 4th at 2:30pm at 511 Manor Lane in Pelham Manor to support Kate Pringle and Mark Cardwell for election to the Pelham Manor Board of Trustees.

With unmatched records of service and a shared commitment to delivering fiscal stewardship and accountability, improving public safety, and enhancing the quality of life in our village, Kate Pringle and Mark Cardwell announce their campaign to bring a new era of collaborative and effective leadership to Pelham Manor.

Kate Pringle is an accomplished attorney with thirty years’ experience advising major companies and nonprofits. Kate has drawn on her professional experience in service on both local and national boards, including the boards of Huguenot Memorial Church, the Pelham Art Center, and national advocacy organization Bread for the World. She also gives her time as a volunteer in community organizations and projects throughout Pelham.

Mark Cardwell has served as a volunteer firefighter in the Manor for over 10 years, earning volunteer of the year in 2018, and is currently Vice President of the company. He also volunteered with Mamaroneck EMS for over eight years, serving as a front-line responder throughout the pandemic, and currently serves on the organization’s board of directors. He was also Assistant Scoutmaster and board member in Pelham’s Scout Troop 1. In his professional life, Mark is a seasoned government and non-profit leader who has worked in the NYC Department of Investigation, the U.S. government, at the United Nations, and as an executive at a non-profit research center.

“We are determined to bring people together to address the opportunities, and the urgent needs, of Pelham Manor. We must solve our flooding problem and act to preserve our infrastructure. I will do everything I can to ensure that we receive all available grant money, work with neighboring communities, and take the right steps to protect our community. I will use my professional experience to institute best management practices, put expensive lawsuits behind us, and ensure that every tax dollar is used wisely. I will invite all of Pelham Manor’s talented residents to the table, so that together we can achieve a safer, more beautiful, sustaining, efficient, welcoming and vibrant Village for all residents. Our community can and should reflect its amazing people,” said Kate.

Mark says, “We must be smarter with our hard-earned tax dollars. For years we paid out-of-proportion salaries – our recently retired village manager, for example, was paid more than the governor. Lack of strong leadership has left us saddled with expensive lawsuits. Pressing public safety issues have been brushed off. Meanwhile, we are failing to take advantage of grant opportunities that could help us manage our urgent flooding challenges, and we are falling behind other villages already using that money. We need to do better.”

Election Day is Tuesday, March 19, 2024. Voters may cast their ballots early by mail, or in person on Election Day. Polls are open from 6:00 am-9:00 pm at Pelham Manor Firehouse, 4 Penfield Place.
