A Fine Occasion for Assemblyman Otis
It was standing-room-only at the swearing-in ceremony for our new State Assemblyman, Steve Otis, in the Rye City Council Room January 12. Dozens of residents, along with elected officials from across Westchester, came out to wish Rye’s former Mayor a wonderful start in his new position.
Among the speakers at the occasion were Congressman Eliot Engels, State Senator George Latimer, former State Senator Suzi Oppenheimer, and Deputy County Executive Kevin Plunkett. Many of them spoke on the importance of cooperation between elected officials across various levels of government, how Assemblyman Otis’ 28 years of experience with Senator Oppenheimer positions him well as he enters the Assembly, and his non-partisan approach as Mayor of Rye.
