Meet a Dad: Interview with Jeffrey Rednick! - Rye & Rye Brook Moms

Every once in a while, we like to change things up over here. This month, we would like you to Meet a Dad! Here’s our interview with Jeffrey Rednick!


Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town? Do you have any children and if so, how old are they?

   I am a lifelong (54 years) resident of the Town of Rye.  I am married to my wife, Lois, for 26 years and we have two children, David, 20 years old, a junior at the University of Alabama, and Samantha, 17, a senior at Blind Brook High School.  I graduated Blind Brook High School in 1985, The University of Michigan with a B.A. in Political Science in 1989, and St. Johns University School of Law with a JD in 1995.

Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?

     Growing up, my parents were firm but fair with me.  I do remember thinking to myself that when I have children, I am going to do things differently.  I’m amazed at the amount of times I say something to my children, and it sounds remarkably similar to what my parents had said to me.  For this, I would like to thank my parents for their style of parenting and wisdom that subconsciously embedded in my brain.

Favorite things to do with your kids? 

    Since they were young, my kids have both been foodies, they love good food and trying all different kinds of cuisines.  We love going out to eat as a family and trying new restaurants.  We also enjoy travelling together, and of course, finding new restaurants in new locations.  Most importantly, we enjoy spending time as a family.

We always love to find out one thing people would be surprised to know about you…

     One thing that many people may not know is prior to attending Law School, I worked as a commercial Real Estate Broker in Manhattan.  I knocked on and met with every tenant in both towers of the World Trade Center.  When the Real Estate market crashed in the early 90’s, I wanted to work with my father, who was an attorney in Port Chester, so I went to Law School.

Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!

     I am a big believer in public service.  I have served the Village of Port Chester as Chairperson of its Planning Board and as its Prosecutor.  I have served the Village of Rye Brook on its Zoning Board of Appeals, traffic commission, advisory council on Parks and Recreation, and was a Trustee on the Village Board for nine years, eight of which I was Deputy Mayor.  Presently, I am a Judge in the Town of Rye.  And I am running for re-election on November 2nd!!

How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?

I believe that by serving the community in so many different ways, it has given me a deeper understanding of all the issues the residents of the Town of Rye encounter.  Serving on the Boards and Commissions has allowed me to form relationships with neighbors and community members that I may not have met had I not served.
