New York District 21 candidate Matt Castelli releases platform ahead of November election

Matt Castelli, the Democratic candidate for New York’s 21st congressional district, released his platform with the Moderate Party on Monday. Castelli said he wanted to focus on solving problems for Americans and independent thinkers by working across party lines. Some of his policy plans include increased funding for law enforcement, reducing debt and government spending, and protecting individual liberties, such as gun rights and women’s reproductive freedoms. .Castelli is a political newcomer to Saratoga County and has worked as a CIA officer in the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations. He led counter-terrorism operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. NBC5 reached out to Congresswoman Elise Stefanik’s campaign for comment on Castelli’s platform. His office declined to speak to us and referred us to a statement released earlier today which read in part, “This Downstate Democrat is desperately trying to trick voters into posing as a moderate when in reality, because of the redistricting, he was able to garner the vast majority of the same signatures from far-left Democrats as he did on his Democratic line.
