Ossining's Castaldi to Run Against Carlucci

Former Ossining Trustee Castaldi will run against incumbent State Senator Carlucci

Janis A. Castaldi is now the official nominee for the New York State 38th Senatorial District having has won the nomination of the Republican Committees of Rockland and Westchester Counties.

“I am honored to have Janis Castaldi as our nominee,” said Republican Committee of Rockland Chairman Vincent Reda. “I am confident that she will win against on November 6.”

Janis Castaldi served as Ossining’s Village Trustee and Deputy Mayor. She is known for her entrepreneurial spirit and plays a major role in building successful businesses, trimming budgets, and marketing for her community. Recently she opened a fitness studio on Main Street in Ossining which won “Best in Westchester”

“Janis is a local business owner who has dedicated her life to community service,” said Westchester Republican Committee Chairman Doug Colety. “As Trustee and Deputy Mayor in Ossining she was committed to finding ways to curb spending so that our taxpayers do not have any additional burden—while making sure we continue to keep the quality of village services at a level our residents deserve.”

The redrawn New York State 38th Senatorial District now encompasses parts Westchester County, and the towns of Ramapo, Orangetown and Clarkstown in Rockland County.

How did she win the convention? She was not even mentioned. Sounds like another back room deal courtesy of Vinny Reda.

From her website..."Athough I received my start in the democratic party, I will represent all candidates and fund raiser for the party."...huh? Is she or isn't she a Democrat? Link to her website... http://janiscastaldi.com/about/ I thought the Republicans were going to stop cross-endorsements.

Good get Carlucci out!

I can't stand politics...Nothing personal...Just the way my brain is wired. However, with that being said, I like Carlucci. He is a young guy and that is what we need. Young blood. Don't ask me about debates or issue--I don't care. All these guys say the same "sheets" before they get elected. However, Carlucci seems like a good man with great motivation.

Carlucci is a man of principle and will win easily.  The only way that this candidate will get any air time is if Carlucci is in the same room with her or on the same stage. Anyone supported by Vincent Reda is a non-starter in my book.   The Republican party, which I used to admire, has become a political hack machine.  It is breaking into factions because of Reda http://www.change.org/petitions/gop-leader-vincent-d-reda-must-resign Reda doesn't support some good Republican candidates in Town elections - what principle is that based upon?  Further, he seems to exert improper influence over Clarkstown Supervisor, Gromack.  Reda appeared to support Gromack instead of GOP candidate Sabatini in the 2011 Clarkstown Supervisor race and is reported to have helped Bronx County Republican Chairman Jay Savino get a “patronage job” in the Town of Clarsktown. http://www.rocklandtimes.com/2012/05/17/repub-rebels-launch-assault-on-reda/ Many say that Clarkstown is really run by Ed Lettre who pulls the strings of power but Reda may be a close second.  Did anyone vote for them?

Don't forget that the official nominee of the Republican party won't be determined until he or she gathers the requisite number of signatures on petitions and wins a primary, if necessary. The only thing that was done by the Rockland and Westchester Republican Committees was to endorse (not nominate) Ms. Castaldi. Back room deal or not, Ms. Castaldi still needs to go through the petition process like all other candidates.

The Republicans BETTER NOT put a Democrat on the ticket. I would rather have a weak Republican candidate than a Democrat on the Republican line. Enough is enough!

Most elections are about political hacks making back room deals. The candidates are marionettes of the shady political bosses. Your choices are Demicans or Republicats- basically no difference between the two parties. The politically connected always win,no matter what party, and the average taxpayer loses. As citizens,one must never give up hope trying to change this broken down system.. Remember, "To oppose corruption in government is the highest obligation of patriotism". G. Edward Griffin
