As the Deputy Mayor for 2016, I look forward to working with my council colleagues,
city staff, and most importantly the community
to continue on with the positive work we’ve begun.
New Rochelle, NY — Without a formal public ceremony, Councilman Jared Rice was sworn-in for his second term to the New Rochelle City Council and the Deputy Mayor for 2016, Wednesday. Beginning his second full term on the New Rochelle City Council, Councilman Jared Rice was sworn in on New Year Eve in a low key fashion joined by his wife and children.
When contacted by Black Westchester, Rice said “I’m honored to serve again as a council member for New Rochelle’s third district. We got a lot accomplished in my first five years, but we still can do more”. In addition to being a council representative, Councilman Rice was also voted in as Deputy Mayor for 2016.
Aside from his work as a criminal justice attorney in Westchester, Rice is known regionally for his role as co-chair of My Brother’s Keeper New Rochelle, an initiative from President Obama to help young men of color reach their potential in life.
