Over the last few weeks we have asked various Rye citizens – elected officials, city staff, community leaders and local authors – to read a story for the youngest citizens of Rye. Each day, we will share a new story.
Today, Rye City Manager Greg Usry reads Mo Willems’ Leonardo, the Terrible Monster.
Following a career on Wall Street, Greg joined the City of Rye this past October as interim city manager. Greg and his wife, Mary Beth, have lived in Rye for 22 years. Their three boys attended Christ Church Nursery School, Midland Elementary and the Rye Middle and High School. The family lives on Cedar Place.
