Dobbs Ferry Democratic Committee recommendations regarding the Nominating Committee

Dear Mayor Hartley Connett and members of the Dobbs Ferry Board of Trustees:
We appreciate the willingness of Dobbs Ferry citizens to give of their valuable time and energy to make Dobbs Ferry a wonderful community.  At the end of last year, the Dobbs Ferry Democratic Committee formed an ad hoc committee to review issues brought to our attention regarding the Village's Nominating Committee process. Members of the ad hoc committee included Vikki Jones, Former Trustee, David Koenigsberg, former Deputy Mayor and Village Trustee, Tracey Frisch, District Leader District 65, and Hind Culhane, long-time Dobbs Ferry resident. 
The ad hoc committee made a presentation of their study and recommendations outlined in the attached memorandum and these recommendations were approved by a majority vote of the Dobbs Ferry Democratic Committee.  We urge the BOT to review and implement the ad hoc committee's suggested recommendations.   
We would be happy to meet with you or members of the Nominating Committee to discuss this further.
We thank you in advance for considering these recommendations.
