CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - Former New Castle Town Supervisor Barbara Gerrard has been appointed to the board of the New Castle Community Media Center. Gerrard will join the volunteer board effective immediately and her term will run for three years.
"That was a very short retirement," said Council member John Buckley at Tuesday night's New Castle Town Board meeting.
Gerrard served at New Castle's supervisor for eight years before deciding not to run for re-election in 2012. She stepped down from the position citing a desire to travel and respect for a tradition of previous supervisors only serving two terms.
The New Castle Town Board also announced the appointment of Christopher Soi as the recreation and parks department's new assistant superintendent effective March 12. Soi will be replacing Wayne Bass, who agreed to become White Plains' commissioner of recreation and parks in January .
