White Plains, NY — The White Plains Democratic City Committee will make endorsements for the
2023 election in the coming weeks for three seats on the Common Council and the two County
Legislature districts that encompass parts of White Plains.
The WPDCC is accepting resumes and letters from registered Democrats seeking to run for the
positions. Candidates are asked to outline their qualifications and explain why they want to run for
either Council or the Legislature. Council candidates must reside in the city while legislative
candidates should reside in the district in which they want to run.
Interested parties should email their information to WPDCC Nominating Committee Chair Charlene
Raynor at firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 23.
Candidates endorsed by the WPDCC would be expected to run as part of a slate, support and actively
campaign with the other candidates on the endorsed ticket as well as share information with and
produce joint literature with their running mates. They will be called upon to raise sufficient funds to
pay for their share of campaign literature and other expenses for the general election and, if necessary,
a June primary. They will also be asked to participate in obtaining signatures of registered Democrats
required to get the designees on the ballot.
The 5th County Legislative District encompasses parts of White Plains, all of Scarsdale and the Silver
Lake section of
