Current Councilwoman Ivy Pool will seek the position of Town Supervisor. Councilman Jeremy Saland is running for re-election, and first-time candidate Jason Lichtenthal seeks the position of Town Councilman. We will run as a team with the endorsement of the New Castle Democratic Committee.
Simply stated, our team is running for Town Board because we *love* this town. Through volunteer service and elected office, we have developed the knowledge, skills, and talents needed to lead our community confidently into the future.
Please join us for a launch party and petition signing event on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at Scattered Books Bookstore in Chappaqua. We will be joined at this event by Democrat Vedat Gashi for County Legislature.
