New and renewed councilmembers were sworn in Saturday during a brief ceremony at Rye City Hall.

“For those of us going into our second terms, there is the satisfaction of knowing the people have said that we did well enough the first time to be turned loose again,” Rye Mayor Josh Cohn said before being sworn in for his own second term. “I guess that our newcomer feels something similar in the public trust that has been bestowed upon him,” he said, referring to first term Councilman Bill Henderson. Cohn, along with Councilmembers Souza and Stacks, are returning for second terms.

The event was limited to councilmembers and immediate family due to COVID concerns, but you can watch it all right here on MyRye.com.

“And thank you to our friends and families for supporting us through our campaigns, despite perhaps not knowing why, exactly, seemingly rational people would do as we’ve chosen to do,” continued Cohn. “Finally, thank you to all who have one way or another, given us the privilege of serving our little city and moving it still ever forward.”

After Mayor Cohn’s brief remarks, he, along with new Councilmember Bill Henderson, and returning Councilmembers Julie Souza and Ben Stacks, were all sworn in by Rye City Judge Valerie A. Livingston. Councilman Josh Nathan, who was sworn a month ago by Rye City Clerk Carolyn D’Andrea, Esq., was on hand to welcome his new and returning colleagues.
