On the first day of early voting, Saturday, June 12th Black Westchester announced our Endorsements. We announced that we would only be endorsing two candidates in this primary Election, Tasha Young for Greenburgh Town Supervisor and Shanae Williams for Westchester County Clerk. We would like to add another candidate that has impressed us and that is MaryAnn Carr (MAC) for Bedford Town Supervisor.
MAC first hit out radar and thoroughly impressed us in the Thursday, September 17th Westchester Democratic County Committee (WCDC) Convention, where she ran and won the position of First Vice Chair. We interviewed her the Sunday before, September 13th. We have had our eye on her ever since, She then was sworn in as Town of Bedford Supervisor, Wednesday, January 6th and is now running for re-election. She brings a much-needed different style in leadership as Town Supervisor and we truly believe you can expect the same level of commitment to serving the community, if re-elected. We believe she is the candidate to lead the Town of Bedford into the future and even though its on the eve of the Primary Election, we are proud to endorse MaryAnn Carr for Town Supervisor of Bedford and encourage that community to cast your vote for her.
As we said with Tasha D. Young for Greenburgh Town Supervisor and Shanae Williams for Westchester County Clerk, we don’t just make this endorsement lightly or endorse her because she is a Black Women, even though we do push for more persons of color in leadership positions. But because MaryAnn Carr has a long tenure of working on the Bedford Democratic Committee, and in 2016 she was elected to an unexpired seat on the Town Board. She has also been active in Bedford community organizations for many years, as an active parent volunteer in BCSD, as a member of the Bedford Antioch Church engaged in outreach programs for the Community Center in Katonah, and volunteering in a leadership role in the Gala Annual Event for the Martin Luther King Scholarship for Youth. MaryAnn is a resident of Bedford Village, and is an information technology consultant.
