Joint Statement from the Candidates
We are running for election to the Town Board for the Town of New Castle, NY.
As three first-time candidates, we will bring new vision, energy and enthusiasm to the Town Board, along with a commitment to fostering open, transparent, and honest government for a stronger New Castle.
“Our vision, and our values are what drives us to work together in this campaign,” says Kristen Browde, candidate for Town Supervisor. “In the coming months, we plan to meet and actively listen to everyone who lives here, regardless of their political affiliation. Then we’re going to move forward to build a stronger New Castle.”
Ivy Pool, candidate for Town Board says, “I’ve always believed in the power of government to deliver services to improve the lives of all citizens. I never expected to run for political office but, like a lot of women, I feel personally motivated by recent political events. I feel a strong responsibility to step up and do my part improve the services in our hometown, and to drive open, inclusive, and transparent governance in New Castle.”
“After the 2016 elections, sitting back was not an option for me,” says Gail Markels, candidate for Town Board. “I felt a need to shape the future of our community and ensure that New Castle continues to be a wonderful place to live and raise a family. I began my career in public service as a prosecutor with a 100% conviction rate and then worked as an attorney specializing in state and local government affairs for several industries. I believe my background will allow me to become an effective town board member.”
