Letter: Vote for Gary Zuckerman: A proven community leader

October 25, 2023 at 10:53 p.m.

We are voting for Gary Zuckerman in his reelection as Town of Rye Supervisor for the reasons set forth in this letter. Gary is the consummate community activist who has made a difference. He has served a total of eight years as Town Supervisor, 11 years on the Rye Brook Planning Board (seven years as Chair), eight years on the Rye Brook Village Board of Trustees and has served on many committees and boards, including the Westchester County Charter Revision Committee. His “institutional knowledge” of the Town of Rye is essential. Gary understands the multifaceted role of the Town: to set policies and the vision for the Town, to oversee the Town’s budget and finances and to hire the appropriate and best staff to carry out the mission of the Town.

Under Gary’s vision and leadership as Supervisor, the Crawford Park Mansion was beautifully renovated and restored and is a venue enjoyed by all Town residents. In addition, over $15,000,000 of grants have been secured for various Town projects, including construction of a new playground and renovation of the pavilion bathrooms at Crawford Park, and restoration of the seawall at Rye Town Park. When the Port Chester Village Court was dissolved and taken over by the Town, Gary and his team worked closely to ensure a seamless transition.

We have worked closely with Gary and know that he is an advocate of intermunicipal cooperation. He works collegially with the elected officials of Westchester County, Rye Brook and Port Chester, as well as the superintendents of the local school districts. Gary is intelligent, hardworking, ethical, energetic, resourceful, respectful and knows our community. He is always available to talk to residents.

Please vote for Gary Zuckerman Tuesday, Nov. 7. Early voting starts Sat., Oct. 28. The Town of Rye needs Gary’s continued knowledge, commitment, vision and passion.
