It is always interesting to see who receives the write-in votes in any of Rye's local elections. It is usually a combination of past office holders and local movers, shakers and agitators.

This year, it is Mr. Met… Yes, that's right. Of the forty write-in votes for the recent Rye School Board election, Mr. Met received one vote.

In the list of dubious lifetime achievements, the following Rye citizens can now list on their professional accomplishments that they beat Mr. Met as a write-in candidate in the 2016 Rye City School Board elections: Jennifer Boyle (2 Write In Votes); Jim Culyer (2 Write In Votes); Steve Feeney (2 Write in Votes); Edward Fox (2 Write in Votes); Mark Surhoff (2 Write In Votes) and by a clear landslide Robert Zahm (3 Write In Votes).

In truth, Mr. Met never had a chance… Rye City and Westchester County is Yankee country….
