The Mayor and City Council have office hours in the Mayor’s Conference Room Annex at Rye City Hall, 1051 Boston Post Road. Attendance by the Mayor and Council Members will vary. The Mayor’s Conference Room Annex is located on the 1st floor of City Hall adjacent to the Council Chambers. Hours are as follows:

Wednesdays 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

  1. “Any argument that the concealment of these documents was inadvertent must be flatly rejected. We have shown these documents to the Westchester District Attorney’s office, and they agree that the documents contain Brady material. At the very least, they are Rosario material and were required to be disclosed to plaintiff at the felony and suppression hearings of the underlying criminal matter. They were not. It is reasonable to infer that a cover-up was planned and executed from the beginning of the criminal case, knowledge of which may be imputed to all the city defendants.” (From letter to Jed S. Rakoff, Senior Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in the matter of Caspi v. City of Rye et al., January 2015)

    Sorry I’ve been busy this year with national politics and haven’t been able to research and write more here locally, folks. But nothing I can see in the “Moving Rye Forward” administration this past year has inspired much confidence that honest services are important once again in Rye. The assistant city manager and the police commissioner were both dispatched in secret pogroms and FOIL requests for so-called “sensitive matters” may as well be thrown in Bind Brook to drift away. Shame on these crooked Democrats that I voted for.

    Now they’ll want a tax increase from us while the builders still owe us up to $6M through under-reported project costs piled up during the Sack Administration. No Special Audit (the normal annual audit would not uncover this despite what they might say) was performed. Nor could they afford to take the risk in doing one with me, a CPA and ex-Rye City Auditor publishing clear evidence of actual underreporting and fraud in building department records here on MyRye for all to see.

    If you’d like to see them for yourself just copy TRUST, BUT VERIFY? NYET SO FAST into the MyRye Search box above and go down to the “How Big Could This Be?” section where the hyperlinks are. Click away on them.

    For the $6M in cumulative missing revenue calculation copy in the title HOSED. RYE TAXPAYERS SLAMMED BY APPARENT UNDERREPORTING FRAUD.

    So again, my apologies for not shining a light this season on the continuous crimes of senior city employees, local political donors, and the politically well connected in Rye. I will try to do more next year. Meanwhile if you’d like to see the rest of the story surrounding that lead quote above just use the MyRye search box again and copy in SACKS SILLY SEASON OF SUPPRESSION and have a great holiday season if I don’t see you around town.
