Zooming In On Rye City Council Backgrounds

You’ve never been on so many video conference calls in your life.

But one of the joys of passing time on a video call is to consider each participant’s video background. There is the faux background, the house beautiful background, the I’m in an underground bunker background and so many more. Since so few of us actually get dressed for work anymore, the video background is your new personal statement.

Not being able to resist, and in the spirit of good fun, we thought we’d assess the “backgrounds” of Rye City Council members.

#1 Rye Mayor Josh Cohn

Kilroy was here. Lawyer comfortable in a professional setting.

I want to be somewhere else. 3,000 miles from here. In the clouds.

#6 City Councilman Ben Stack

“Tell me everything” background. Clearly married to a therapist and using her office for the meeting. Place looks so damn calm!

Mother Earth is my background – 100% sustainable & reusable from meeting-to-meeting.

On-air, and on high ground. Ready to go live from the USA, Japan, Columbia or Indian Village.
