Residents of New Castle County, Delaware
Imagine if you could have better libraries, parks, and public safety right here in our very own New Castle County, and all for less than the cost of your monthly Netflix subscription?
I’m asking you to join me in subscribing to a package of services I like to call NCC Deluxe .
What is NCC Deluxe ?
Think of NCC Deluxe as a service that improves the quality-of-life for all residents of New Castle County. It has features that are so amazing, you will not believe the value you get for your money when you subscribe. Feature such as ….
Public Safety features:
Faster 911 and paramedic response times
Police officers who engage with communities to keep neighborhoods safe.
If you have a cardiac arrest in NCC, and someone calls 911, you’ve got a 30% better chance of surviving than in many other parts of the country.
The Route 9 Library and Innovation Center - Come for the Lego play room, stay for the 3D printer and laser cutter.
Other greats major libraries such as the Brandywine Hundred Library
Neighborhood libraries like the Elsmere Library
The historical Rockwood Museum
Does it really cost less than Netflix ?
Yes, it does. Most people will pay around $5.41 per month for NCC Deluxe. Some people will pay more, others will pay less. The exact cost that you can expect to pay depends on where you live in New Castle County.

This sounds great! How do I subscribe ?
This is where things get a bit tricky. In order to get the great services of NCC Deluxe, all of us (the citizens of New Castle County) have to subscribe. This means we all have to engage in the political process a tiny bit. We all need to do a few things:
1. Contact your New Castle County Councilperson
Tell them you want them to subscribe to NCC Deluxe.
2. Contact your State Representatives
Tell our State Representatives that we want their help raising revenue to us cover some of the costs of NCC Deluxe.
Tell your friends about NCC Deluxe.
The more people who do steps 1 & 2, the more likely it is that we will get our subscription.
What happens if I don’t want to subscribe ?
While it saddens me that not everyone can appreciate the value offered by NCC Deluxe, there are some things you should know before you decide not to subscribe. Without NCC Deluxe, we will all miss out on all the great features mentioned above.
