Grant Fleegle

New Castle City Council

Grant will be the first out LGBTQ leader ever elected in New Castle!


Grant lives in New Castle with his dog Nala and has been a resident for 4 years. A longtime western Pa resident, he stayed in New Castle because of its beauty and potential. He is a student at Youngstown State University to obtain a bachelor’s in political science. His goal was to work for our elected officials, either during campaigning or in office, but is now running himself.

He currently works in a social skills group for autistic children as a mental health worker. He also works with adults with disabilities, assisting them in becoming more involved in their communities. He has volunteered for previous campaigns, such as the Kolbe Cole for Pennsylvania State Representative. Previously, he has worked in the restaurant industry for 7 years, starting as a busser to then being a part of the managerial staff. Grant enjoys working with the public in any capacity because he loves interacting and experiencing the individuality of people.
