CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Several New Castle candidates on the Democratic slate will host a public forum Thursday, Oct. 17.
Candidates Penelle Paderewski, Michael Wolfensohn and John Buckley are hosting the public forum starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Center, 10 Senter Street in Chappaqua, according to a press release. The informal evening is set to provide an opportunity for the candidates to present their platforms and vision for New Castle, according to the release.
“The Democratic candidates are committed to providing opportunities for open dialogue and communication,” said Paderewski in the release. “Our goal for this meeting is to provide voters with an opportunity to ask us questions directly and to clear up the many misconceptions that are out there. This approach to communication on a regular basis is not just limited to campaign season. We have presented in our platform several new ideas to enhance communication and make ourselves available to the public on a regular basis.”
The candidates will each take questions from the audience in order to prepare voters for the Nov. 5 election.
“While it has been great to speak to people through our listening tours and on our neighborhood walks, this will be an opportunity to meet with residents, take their questions and communicate with as many of them as possible on what our vision is for the future of New Castle,” said Buckley in the release.
The New Castle Democrats forum will focus on fiscal responsibility; creating an informed community by enhancing residents’ access and input to town projects and developments; partnership with school districts; emergency response preparedness; and sustainability and environmental preservation/recreation and enjoyment, according to the release.
“This election is particularly important as we have several issues that the Town Board will need to address that will have an impact on the future of town for years to come,” Wolfensohn said in the release.
