Jon Mark, 67, of Brookby Road will be the first to tell you he wasn’t an aggressive seeker of public office when he was approached by the Citizens Nominating Committee in 2009 about taking a spot on the Village of Scarsdale Board of Trustees but, six years later, he’s excited about the prospect of returning to the dais after two terms as trustee and a year’s hiatus, this time as mayor.
