On September 29, the Westchester County Fair Campaign Practices Committee declared that the Moving Rye Forward Campaign Team consisting of Josh Cohn, Sara Goddard, Julie Souza, and Ben Stacks, Democratic candidates for Mayor and City Council in Rye used unfair practices in two instances. The complaint was brought by Joe Sack, Mayor of Rye.
The team placed an ad in the September 8 edition of The Rye City Review that stated there was a plan to “move the DPW for a staggering $50M+.” The Committee found that no such plan had been approved by the Rye City Council.
The same ad referred to “Crown Castle’s threat to put cell towers on residents’ lawns…”. The Committee found that the towers would be placed on utility poles in the right of way, not on residents’ property.
