My name is Phil Gross and I am humbly asking for your vote on April 10th. Living in the City of New Castle for many years has brought great joy to my life. I'd like to give back by playing a more integral role with its continued improvement and preservation. With my over 30 years of business, community and organizational involvement, I feel that I can help make a difference in our community. Also, with running an environmentally friendly group called Green Drinks Delaware, that champions itself for recycling, pushing for using echo friendly products, humane treatment of animals, reduced gas emissions and reduced landfill bulk, I will make environmental issues a high priority.

With my 30 years of running a family lighting business, Gross Lighting and being part of a management team for Dollar Tree, I have great business accolades. I’ve gained civic experience through lifelong involvement as a community/organizational leader, serving on city committees as well as participating and helping with many city events. I feel that with these combined skill sets, I can help to make a difference in the in the community and am uniquely qualified to earn your vote to fill a position for City council.

In addition, I am the type of person that is interested in other's needs and concerns and have been able to "rally the troops to get the job done" and to work for the common good of an organization, a company as well as the community. I have also been able to mend divides within a company and organization, thus fostering a spirit of collaboration and feel that people should be given the opportunity to be treated equally. With that being said, I feel that I would be able to apply these same traits to accomplish the same for this community that we proudly call home.

Just like you, I love the city we live in and want to preserve its historic charm, improve its infrastructure and insure that it and the surrounding communities continue to become an even more attractive, vibrant, safe and charming destination to live in and visit for many years to come.

I feel that with all the above skill sets and my commitment to serve ALL the people and communities that make up the City of New Castle, I can make a difference and am the best candidate for a position on City council. I humbly ask for your vote on
April 10th, so that I can continue to make a difference and be given the opportunity to be your advocate on City Council.

Respectfully submitted, ​Phil Gross
