  • Jim Smith on Our Facebook Community and Political Labels

    Facebook community chatter. Not so productive. It drives residents to tune out, participate less, and potential residents to flee. The good news is the Facebook dumpster fire doesn’t represent the Town I’m seeing from my vantage point running for Town Supervisor. The conversations I’ve had, one at a time over the last seven months, with…

  • Addressing Community Airport Noise

    Airplane noise (and pollution) has become a major issue in New Castle over the past three years. Little has been done in that time to mitigate the problem; it has gotten worse.

  • Sustainable New Castle: A Place to Plant Your Family

    It was good to talk about a “Sustainable New Castle” vision with the Sustainability Advisory Board (SAB) at their monthly meeting.  They are passionate volunteers always looking for new ways to make a difference.

  • Roads must be paved more than once in a generation

    A more aggressive Pavement Management Program is required that starts with an accelerated paving program to catch up. We need to convert our reactive program into a proactive program. Our current, reactive strategy means paving is done on a ‘worst first’ basis where there are always a long list of Town roads in poor condition.…
