Karen's Plan: Youth In New Castle County - Building a Bright Future

 

As a candidate for New Castle County Executive, I am deeply committed to enhancing the lives of our youth through comprehensive services and programs provided by the New Castle County Government. With my experience as the President of New Castle County Council for the past eight years, I have been instrumental in supporting, advocating for, and sponsoring legislation that benefits our young residents. Our county offers a wide range of youth services, including recreational programs, educational initiatives, job training, mental health resources, and community centers. During my tenure, I have increased funding for youth programs, fostered community partnerships, and supported public safety initiatives. As County Executive, I will expand these programs, enhance mental health support, strengthen partnerships, and champion innovation to prepare our youth for future success. Experience matters, and as a mother of four, I understand the importance of investing in our youth. Let's make New Castle County the best place for our young residents to grow and prosper.
