Cost of purifying By Juan A. Borras Staff Writer Homeowners and businesses plagued by polluted wells at Baldwin Place in Somers might have to tap into a nearby water district to relieve the problem at a cost of about $1.3 million. An engineering report released Wednesday recommends that the town consider extending the Amawalk-Shenorock Water District to include 30 homes, 45 businesses and the Baldwin Place Shopping Center. "The creation of a water district will have to take place, whether it's an extension or a standalone system," said Gary Iversen, a scientist with Malcolm Pirnie Inc.

of White Plains, the consulting firm that conducted the study. A key part of the district would be a water-treatment system that would purify the area's ground water polluted by toxic chemicals. Health officials have said they suspect ground the from chemicals seeped into of the one or more service stations that ring Baldwin Place. Extending the water district would cost an estimated $1.26 million, while creating a new district would cost $2.4 million, according to the study. Either way, up to $920,000 could be covered by the state Environmental Protection and Spill James Ramsby off9 Drew St.

"The water has to be clean on a long-term, no-foul-up basis," Somers Supervisor William Harding said Friday. "There can't be even the slighest chance that it's going to be bad." Tetrachloroethylene (PCE), a solvent commonly used by dry cleaners and automobile mechanics, has been found in both commercial and residential wells From page A3 He contends that the main focus of the town government for the next several years should be to "control growth and preserve open spaces" while promoting recycling and other programs that improve the quality of life for residents of Mamaroneck. A division manager at IBM, where he has worked in financial analysis for 20 years, McGarr served on the Larchmont budget committee from 1982 to 1988.

As a town councilmember, he has served on the town's Financial Management Committee, SchoolTown Relations, Housing Task Force and the Ice Rink Committee. McGarr earned his bachelor's degree in economics from Adelphi University and his master's degree in business from New York University. A Larchmont resident for 11 years, McGarr lives with his wife and daughter. Robert Miller, Republican-Independent Ten years after he was elected to the Larchmont Board of Trustees, Robert Miller is trying for a return to public office as a Mama- roneck councilmember. A Larchmont trustee from 1979 to 1981, Miller is worried about the way Democrats have conducted the town's business recently.

"There's no planning; they just go about and do things without planning them through," said Miller, who has been a member of the Larchmont Planning Commission for 14 years. "There's a total lack of business expertise on the town board," he said. "I think I can bring that to the board." A 1955 New York University graduate, Miller has been involved in real estate sales, construction, marketing, management and development with the ADCO Group in Manhattan for 17 years. He has lived in Larchmont for 23 years with his wife and two daughters.

Samuel Kissinger should be fired. She thinks the "Independent" title suits her. The 51-year-old mother of three grown children has been attending City Council meetings for ten years. "I started naively, I only went in the evenings," she said. "And they used to say 'yea' or and I would wonder why they voted that way." Then she started going in the afternoons to the monthly Committee of the Whole meetings where items are discussed and members polled.

This is Krebs' second attempt at a City Council seat, having lost two years ago in a primary. A 23-year resident of New Rochelle, Krebs was born and raised in Newark, N.J. She graduated from Douglass College in New Brunswick, N.J., where she studied economics. In 1973, she helped found Pet Assistance an animal shelter. Today, she serves on the city's Environmental Conservation Advisory Commission.

Along with running the animal shelter, she works as a self-employed tax preparer and finds occasional assignments as an animal handler for commercials. Samuel Spady Democrat When Samuel Spady Jr. won the Democratic nomination for City Council from the nominating convention in April, one of the first people he went to see was a former teacher at New Rochelle High School. "Aside from my father, she probably had the biggest impact on my life," he said. "She made me work.

She always felt I had as much ability, or more ability, than other students." Born and raised in New Rochelle, Spady is one of 11 children. After graduating from high school in 1963, he went to Westchester Community College where he studied labor relations. For eight years he worked as a social worker for the New Rochelle Community Action Agency. In the mid-1960s, he clipped articles and did research for Joseph Evans, the only black councilman in New Rochelle's history. About that time, he joined Police Partners, a watchdog group that was on the lookout for racial unrest on city streets.

Spady, 44, has stayed involved in the community, serving as president of the South End Civic League from 1981 to 1987 and as president of the New Rochelle Little League for 10 years. He currently serves on the New Rochelle Advisory Committee for Development of the Waterfront. A facility manager for FritoLay Spady has been married to his second wife, Gwendolyn, for 16 years. They have two children.

Zaccagnino, 55, is a from a second-generation New Rochelle family. His wife, Jane, whom he met in college, is from a third-generation family. A man of few words, Zaccagnino said this trait is sometimes misinterpreted.

"I don't mean to be that way if I am," he said. "I put on a serious face many times when I'm fooling around with people. Those people who know me, know when I'm fooling. It's been very effective in school." Zaccagnino needed a stern face when he began teaching business education to seniors at New Rochelle High School, only five years after he graduated in 1952. Zaccagnino is currently principal of the Albert Leonard Middle School.

A former Rotarian, he first got involved in local politics in the 1970s, helping out in local campaigns. In 1977, he received the endorsement from the GOP and won his first race.
