This is an important election year. In January 2020, for the first time in six years, we will have a new Town Supervisor. New Castle Democrats 2019 has a proven record of leadership and is ready to continue leading! Ivy, Jeremy, and Jason are serious, qualified leaders with real records and accomplishments in elected office.
Ivy Pool was elected to office in 2017, with the highest number of votes among the four candidates for Town Board, two of whom were incumbents. After her election, Ivy immediately set out to build a more collaborative, cohesive Town Board, by setting aside partisan politics in favor of consensus-driven governance. Her philosophy is that the Town Board works for the people, and she cares deeply about service to the community and all of its residents.
During her tenure on the Town Board, Ivy has established a well-earned reputation for hard work and responsiveness. Some of her key accomplishments include:
2019 is an important election year. Having worked closely with Supervisor Greenstein, Ivy has a keen sense of the commitment it takes to be a successful Town Supervisor. She cares deeply about the work and wants to ensure the successes of the past are carried forward. She brings fresh ideas and perspective to the office as well. Ivy is the most qualified candidate on the ballot, she loves this community, and she is ready to serve!
Serving as one of your Town Councilman over the past four years has been both a source of pride and genuine honor. During my tenure working alongside my colleagues, we have united and come together to unquestionably make New Castle a better place today and for the many tomorrows yet to come. Whether on the West End or East, or in the hamlets of Chappaqua or Millwood, I have been a catalyst for change, growth and stability by advocating with my fellow councilmembers and spearheading many efforts.
Irrespective of our individual and collective achievements, success is often only possible because of those who support the Town Board and our community. Ultimately, as proud as I am for my individual efforts and those of the Town Board, it is our Town staff and volunteer committees that are routinely the glue that keeps everything together and running smoothly while making ideas, resolutions and projects a reality.
By no means a exclusive list, some of these accomplishments include:
Public Health Laws
Environmental and Sustainability Laws
Policy and the Future of New Castle
Sidewalks and Paving
Other Relevant Votes and Acts
It is an exciting time to live, work and play in New Castle. During my term, the Town Board has demonstrated through our actions that we are committed to making our community welcoming, vibrant and a place for all residents. With the upgrades to Millwood Park and our new Town Hall playground and basketball court, expanding and fixing sidewalks, increasing paving and ensuring we maintain the principles the Town galvanized behind with the adoption of our Comprehensive Plan, there is much we have put into motion. Whether it is leading with our environmental policies or implementing laws to protect our youth, I am proud to have a hand in making New Castle what it is today and what it will be tomorrow.

Jason was appointed to the Millwood Board of Fire Commissioners in February 2016. He replaced Hala Makowska who had two years left on her term on the Board after she was elected to the New Castle Town Board in November 2015.
The biggest challenge when Jason joined the Millwood Board of Fire Commissioners was to finish the new Millwood Fire Station #1 building at 100 Millwood Road. There were five major contractors, one of which was in jeopardy of not completing their portion of the project, and a second contractor whose work was considered not acceptable to the Board. Due to Jason’s work, we now have a wonderful, welcoming fire station for our volunteers that will keep the Millwood Fire District well protected for years to come.
Jason worked with the League of Women Voters of New Castle to expand voting rights in the Millwood Fire District by implementing absentee ballots.
Watching the budget and spending of the Fire District is a key role for the Fire Commissioners.
In Jason’s professional life, he has decades of experience in various senior leadership roles.
Jason has played a number of other roles in our community, both formally and informally. Throughout his adult life, Jason has always put the needs and concerns of others above his own, which shows in his various community service activities. He will continue to put the issues and needs of our community first and foremost, above any special interests or political parties. He cares tremendously about our community, and his qualifications will make him an exceptional member of our Town Board.
