Candidate Biography”Bob is the kind of partner in Albany that I need to help fulfill my promises to the people of Westchester.”
County Executive Rob Astorino
Robert J. Castelli has dedicated his life to public service. He is a Vietnam veteran who, after a distinguished 21 year career in the the New York State Police which included service on the Organized Crime Task Force, went on to receive his graduate degree in public administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
For the past thirteen years, as a college professor, Bob used his experience to help shape the future leaders of our state. As a small businessman, he operates a security consulting business where he provides expert advice and commentary to television and print media on criminal justice and homeland security matters. He is a former Lewisboro Councilman, and was chair of the Public Safety and Emergency Services Committees of County Executive Rob Astorino’s transition team.
Today, Bob continues his lifetime of public service by representing the 89th Assembly District in the New York State Assembly, having won a special election in February 2010. A committed fiscal conservative and budget hawk, Bob has advocated on behalf of the residents of Bedford, Lewisboro, Harrison, Mount Kisco, New Castle, North Castle, Pound Ridge and White Plains and fought hard to reform Albany’s dysfunction. In just his first four months as an Assemblyman, he was able to work in a bipartisan fashion to pass two pieces of his legislation.
