    One of the finest free views of Long Island and Long Island Sound can be seen from a memorial bench atop the sledding hill at Rye Town Park. I’ve always enjoyed sitting there, even if just for a moment. It’s a lovely RTP view, high up, unobstructed by pretty much anything. The memorial dedication plaque reads:

    “In Loving Memory of Grace & Joseph Parisi. In Recognition of a Lifetime of Dedicated Service. The City of Rye Republican Committee – October 1997.”

    Online you can see that Grace (Rasulo) Parisi apparently died in July of 1994. Her husband, a former NYS Senator and ex-Chief Clerk of the Criminal Term of the Brooklyn Supreme Court predeceased her in May of 1990. According to published obituaries they are Guy Parisi’s parents.

    A lot of bad has happened since 1990 in the Rye Republican Party. I know because I’ve documented it and reported it. The Rye Democratic Party has kept pace, which I’ve also documented and reported. And now this, one of the cruelest local politico crimes since Steve Otis’s lawless municipal treatment of elderly resident Bob Schubert.

    What is it with so many NYS politicos? Self dealing, secret stealing. The view up there will never quite be the same.
