One of the fundamental goals of Up2Us is to support progressive Democratic candidates up and down the ballot. We are proud to endorse the Stronger New Castle slate for supervisor and board members for the town of New Castle. Many of us have been gathering signatures for Kristen Browde, Gail Markels, and Ivy Pool, as the signatures of registered Democrats are required in order to get them on the ballot in November. We are looking to activate the power of the Up2Us membership to get out the vote for both a primary (if a primary does occur) and the general election. In addition to their alignment with our core values, we are particularly impressed by their public policy credentials, government experience, management skills, municipal project management, environmental sensitivity, and fiscal responsibility. We love their passion for New Castle and their vision for its future. Above all, we welcome their understanding that the cornerstone of public service is respect for constituents, collaboration, and transparency. We all want our communities to be inclusive and embracing, and this slate is dedicated to those ideals. It is Up2Us to make our communities stronger by doing everything we can to elect progressive candidates like the Stronger New Castle slate.

New Castle Voter should vote with confidence for Kristen Browde for Town Supervisor, along with Gail Markels and Ivy Pool for Town Board, not just because they are Democrats, but also because they represent a breath of fresh air that can bring greater cooperation and professionalism to Town Hall.

Like myself, Kristen Browde was a television reporter in New York City. But she was so much more. She was a CBS News Correspondent, Washington Correspondent for CNN, has experience covering the Mideast, and perhaps because all of that wasn’t keeping her busy enough, she earned a Law Degree (while working at CBS) and now has a vibrant law practice in Westchester. I have known Kristen for 36 years. She is also the first transgender person to run for public office in New York State with the endorsement of a major political party (in fact with the endorsement of both the Democrats and the Working Families Party.) Kristen is running for Town Supervisor in New Castle, NY, the town that includes Chappaqua and Millwood, and some homes with Armonk, Bedford, Ossining and Mt. Kisco addresses. We endorse her efforts to smash a glass ceiling and send a pro-equality message in Westchester County and New York State. More about Kristen can be found here. While most of theLoop readership does not reside in her district, there are ways you can help. A fundraising event will be held June 28 at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. Real reform in this country can, and should, begin with all of us. The election is November 7.
The Victory Fund
"Victory Fund is thrilled to endorse Kristen Browde for Town Supervisor in New Castle, New York," said Victory Fund President & CEO Aisha C. Moodie-Mills. "Kristen's commitment to responsive, open government that is both fiscally responsible and that respects the natural beauty of the area makes her the best candidate for the town. When she wins in November, Kristen will become a vital force in building a stronger New Castle as well as a role model for the LGBTQ youth of the town and the rest of New York State."
