Our Mission Statement

Our village board is made up of a group of independent thinkers, from different political persuasions, whose only intent is to make Babylon Village a better place to live.  We come together under the Better Babylon Party, which in fact is just a name for the Better Babylon Philosophy that leads us to be an open and more responsive government.
