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 David Carlucci on November 6th.”

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.

“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.”

Miss Castaldi: I am Anthony Mele, a Republican Committeeman in the process of carrying nomination petitions. Your petition is among them and frankly I will not support petitions for democrats. Also, when I inform the Republican voters at their front door and show them your petition, they decline from signing it. Now in your own words, you do not explain why your career has hindered the elected position you ran for and were voted in by your neighbors; but suddenly claim, you are magically a Republican who is no longer obstructed by career to serve the entire 38th Senate District. Additionally, I was at the Republican convention and no one entered your name for nomination there. So come clean with us, what is the real story. None of this makes any sense to us in Rockland County Ma'am.

This is an example of the back room dealing that have marred the Republican branding in our County, and dare say, State of NY. Republican Chairmen back room dealing to give the Republican ballot to Democrats or RINOs is like Coke selling Pepsi.

With all defference to my good friend Sen. David Carlucci, but he will likely be stripped of his seat in the next election. Being affable is a valuable personality trait for political campaigning but a hindrance for a NYS Senator. His former job as the Town Clerk was in no realistic way a qualifier for the Senate job. What was the qualifier was the Party bosses found an affable fellow who would do as he is told. David found himself unable to please both the Albany and Rockland bosses and landed in hot water, the target of an orchestrated effort to out Democrat him. They put up a former Republican on the Democrat line and allegedly, former Democrat on the Republican line. Republican and Democrat Chairmen working together to manipulate the voters is not bi-partisanship or cooperaton - it just more back room dealing.

@Anthony Mele. Your posts make you sound obsessed with the Senate seat, the democrats, the republicans, and Castaldi. I'd guess the republicans in Rockland County chose democrat Castaldi for the sole reason she's a "warm body" and couldn't find anyone else to run. My main thought about Castaldi is she quit her elected position in Ossining without a definitive explanation. She let down her constituents. Castaldi's past was apparently not considered when the dysfunctional Republican Party nominated her.

Thanks Chris. I do what I can for my community because I care. The excuse by my republican chairman that the dog ate all my republicans is lame. I can say. Rockland irepublicans are not supporting this from what I see and hear. Westchester can keep her.

Seems the conservative party will not support ms castaldi now. The NYS Senate is responsible for spending. We need prudent ,limited government minded candidates in that body.
