The Rye Police Benevolent Association has endorsed former Rye Mayor Steve Otis in his run for New York State Assembly. Otis is running for the seat vacated by George Latimer. Latimer is running for New York State Senate for the seat vacated by the retiring Suzy Oppenheimer. And - if you are still following this game of musical chairs - Otis serves as chief of staff for Oppenheimer.
Here is the Rye PBA endorsement letter:

Steve Otis endorsement for NYS Assembly
It is with great pleasure and honor that the Rye Police Benevolent Association throw our full
political support behind, Steve Otis, for New York State Assembly.
Steve Otis, a life long resident of Rye has been chief of staff to Sen. Oppenheimer, DMamaroneck
since 1985. Otis also served as city of Rye mayor from 1998 through 2009 and currently
sits on the executive committee of the Westchester County Municipal Officials Association.
As employees of the city of Rye, the members of the Rye PBA have had the privilege of working
with Steve Otis in his capacity as mayor and in that experience he earned great respect and admiration
from us. We were greatly impressed by his professionalism and he shown great concern for our
members needs and that of the community as a whole. His Selfishness to the Rye community that he
has served for over 10 years is highly commendable and inspiring. Steve’s dedication and hard work will
promote a healthy and positive environment in the NYS Assembly.
