Rebuild Our Economy.

A FRESH VOICE • THE RIGHT CHOICE
FOR
COUNTY COUNCIL PRESIDENT

KAREN HARTLEY-NAGLE HAS A PLAN 
FOR NEW CASTLE COUNTY

Rebuilding Our Economy from the Middle Class Out.

Karen believes that an economy built to last starts with the middle class.  We’ve lost too many good middle-class jobs at companies like Dupont, Chemours, AstraZeneca, GM, Chrysler and the banking industry.  Karen will work for strong economic growth by encouraging both large and small businesses to locate here in New Castle County through smarter regulations and incentives geared toward job creation.

 Hartley-Nagle is calling for changes to the Unified Development Code that would create a more predictable review process.  “Business hates uncertainty. It can take up to four years to complete the County development process.  That places us at a severe competitive disadvantage to neighboring counties and states,” says Hartley-Nagle.

 Additionally, “Over two years ago an economic study was undertaken by the current County government that produced a plan.  To date, virtually nothing has been done. A plan which cost over $50,000 in consulting fees was paid for and put on the shelf, gathering dust.  No meaningful action has been proposed,” she revealed.  Hartley-Nagle promises a forward-thinking strategic campaign to promote economic development, repurpose commercial properties, and develop a relationship with the State Economic Development Office to create and retain jobs.
