U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey and two state lawmakers have endorsed the New Castle Democratic Committee’s slate of candidates for town-level races.
Lowey (D-Harrison), state Assemblyman David Buchwald (D-White Plains), and state Sen. George Latimer (D-Rye) are throwing their support behind the four-person ticket of Penelle Paderewski, Michael Wolfensohn, John Buckley and Noah Sorkin.
“I’ve long been impressed by the leadership and the work ethic of the individuals running for New Castle town office this year, led by supervisor candidate (Paderewski),” Latimer said in a statement. “They offer voters a choice that many other towns do not have—people who care first and foremost about making the community a better place to live.”
Paderewski is running for town supervisor in the November election against Republican candidate Robert Greenstein. Wolfensohn and Buckley are competing for two open seats on the Town Board against Republican candidates Lisa Katz and Adam Brodsky. Sorkin, the acting town justice, is opposed by Republican candidate Stuart Miller, who also has the Independence line.
“We are very pleased to receive the recognition and support from these prominent leaders who serve our community with passion and dedication,” Paderewski said. “Our slate is committed to many of the same issues as they are from improving our community to fiscal responsibility; from safety and quality of life to sustainability and environmental preservation.”
