Newly inaugurated Mayor Joe Sack and the new City Council began their January 8 meeting by approving the nominations of Richard Mecca and Richard Slack to fill two vacant Council seats. The Council’s pair of two- year vacancies was created by Catherine Parker’s election to the County Board of Legislators and Sack’s mayoral win. Mecca is a registered Republican, Slack is not affiliated with a party.

 

The Mayor appointed Councilwoman Laura Brett as Deputy Mayor for 2014.

 

The Council will be now be comprised of five Republicans, one independent, and one Democrat, Kirstin Bucci, who ran on Sack’s Rye United team.

 

In choosing Slack and Mecca, Sack noted that, “We were looking for folks who we felt could best serve as part of the Council team, regardless of political party affiliation.”

Mecca has lived in Rye since 1980 and is an electrician who formerly owned Mecca Electric. He is currently Electrical Inspector for White Plains. A longtime member of Rye Fire Department, Mecca has served on the Planning Commission and the Board of Architectural Review, as well as on Rye’s Flood Advisory Commission. “On a Council comprised of attorneys and finance professionals, Richard Mecca brings a different and welcome perspective.” Commented Mayor Sack.

 

Slack and his wife Laura, who is President of the Rye City School Board, moved to Rye in 1996. He is an attorney with Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, specializing in business and securities litigation. He has extensive experience advising boards of directors and representing major companies.

 

“Richard Slack has a keen mind and a strong sense of right and wrong,” said the Mayor.

 

The two new Councilmembers will serve until January 1, 2015. A special election will be held in November of this year to decide who will complete the remaining year of the two unexpired terms.
