    overbuilding in Rye ( especially of multifamily rentals ) is a disaster . The schools are packed & our student test scores in freefall and the multifamily rentals generate little additional school tax revenues .

    but the need for the out-of-control tax hikes is NOT due to builders ! Its due to completely insane pension & healthcare costs of its unionized workforce as mandated by state . This is why everybody with a brain and some wealth is fleeing NY .

    NY State Election Contribution Records indicate the following:

    For the Rye City Council elections of 2013, Julie Killian, Terry McCartney, Kirstin Bucci and Joe Sack ran under the banner of “Rye United” as the Republican Party candidates. Meg Cameron and Shari Punyon ran under the banner of “Friends of Cameron & Punyon” as the Democratic Party Candidates.

    Friends of Cameron & Punyon’s DEMOCRATS collected $29,224 from 72 individual donations. There are $0 readily identifiable donations to the Democrats from building & construction interests.

    Rye United’s REPUBLICANS collected $62,994 from 160 individual donations. $19,250 or 31% of this amount was received from 26 donors related to building & construction interests. Also, $500 was received by Rye United from a local Democratic leader and prolific Democratic Party donor family exceptionally lucky over the years in matters of permits, permissions and real estate assessments issued by Rye City Hall.

    For the Rye City Council elections of 2015, Richard Mecca, Jim Culyer and Leon Sculti ran under the banner of “True To Rye” as the Republican Party Candidates. Emily Hurd, Danielle Tagger-Epstein and Jeff Taylor ran under the banner of “Friends of Emily, Danielle and Jeff” as the Democratic Party candidates.

    Friends of Emily, Danielle and Jeff’s DEMOCRATS collected $36,392 from 119 individual donations. There are again $0 readily identifiable donations to the Democrats from building & construction interests.

    True To Rye’s REPUBLICANS collected $17,305 from 24 individual donations. $14,500 or 84% of this amount was received from 9 donors related to the building & construction industry. Substantially all of these amounts were reported as being received the day AFTER the final public reporting “cut-off date” prior to the election. Included in the total of $17,305 but not the $14,500 from builder & developer interests is $1000 from candidate Richard Mecca, an electrical inspector in White Plains.

    Donations by the aforementioned local Democratic leader and prolific Democratic Party donor family exceptionally lucky in matters of permits, permissions and real estate assessments issued by Rye City Hall in the past several years are indicated to be $26,850, with $20,000 alone given to the area’s most powerful elected Democratic Party official, who also is a former Rye City Councilman.

    You can look it up.
