RYE, N.Y. -- The Rye City Republican Committee nominated Joe Sack for Mayor and Kristin Bucci, Julie Killian and Terry McCartney for City Council Thursday night.
Sack is a two-term council member and a securities litigation lawyer in private practice. He is married with three daughters who attend Rye public schools.
“Between the Rye Golf Club scandal, the Rye TV fiasco, and the FOIL mess, to name a few, people in Rye are just worn out from all this drama,” Sack said. “And quite frankly, folks have lost some confidence in the way city government is run. By asking tough questions, demanding straight answers, and using good judgment, I know that we can help restore that confidence.”
Bucci is a former financial industry analyst and an active volunteer in the Rye schools. She was motivated to run after the recent scandal at Rye Golf Club, where she is a member. She is a registered Democrat with three daughters who attend Rye public schools.
“No matter your political party registration, I believe that what we need right now in Rye on a local level is common sense,” Bucci said. “I am proud to be running with Joe, Julie and Terry on the Republican line, and feel that our team is positioned to lead Rye back to the top.”
Killian has been active in the Rye community for more than 20 years, and formerly worked as an executive at Citibank. She was appointed to the council and then won election last year. She has worked on a number of committees including the Rye Golf Club Strategic Committee and the Finance Committee. She has five children, aged middle school through college.
“It has been an honor to serve on the Council and I look forward to continuing to institute forward thinking and prudent fiscal management to Rye City. We have put together a terrific bi-partisan team to serve the citizen’s of Rye,” Killian said.
McCartney is a former Marine Corps officer and is currently an attorney and named partner at Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney and Giuffra, a Manhattan law firm specializing in product liability cases. He has served as a coach and boxing instructor in Rye, and has two sons, including one in college. Like Bucci, he was inspired to run after the scandal at Rye Golf Club, where he is also a member.
“I plan to promote the ideals of integrity and accountability in Rye government,” McCartney said. “Working together, we can unite Rye and get back on track.”
