THE EXAMINER ENDORSES GREENSTEIN, BRODSKY & KATZ! – Read More
We are a nonpartisan ticket. Rob Greenstein and Lisa Katz are registered Democrats. Adam Brodsky is unaffiliated. The New Castle Republican Party is endorsing us because they believe we are the best candidates for the town regardless of party. They are putting the interests of the residents and our community above all. We do the same! We are also endorsed by the Independence Party.
We got involved in Town government after witnessing years of status quo leadership, irresponsible housing developments, costly lawsuits, property tax hikes and the total lack of communication from our elected officials.
We ushered in a new era in Town government and we put the interests of our residents above the agenda of a single political party.
We promised a new approach and we delivered! For four years, we concentrated on local matters and results, not political ideology and labels. We put the interests of residents and community first.
Our Town government is more financially sound, more communicative and more responsive to our residents than ever before. We are tireless, responsive, accessible and proactive. We bring an unprecedented level of transparency, communication and community engagement.
We are laser focused on improving the quality of life for residents, and making New Castle a safer place to live and raise a family.
We are Getting Things Done!
