David L. Anderson, city of Dover 4th District councilman, will announce his bid for the 31st Representative District at noon March 10 at the Solid Rock Community Outreach Center, 109 N. West St., Dover.

The location is particularly significant to Anderson because he helped it receive $25,000 in grant funding working with Sen. Brian Bushweller and participated in efforts that resulted in an eighty-seven percent reduction in crime last year. The 31st District covers most of the western portion of Dover from Luther Towers to the New Dover High School and north to West Denneys Road and south to Woodsedge.

The honorary event chairman is former Rep. Don Blakey. The host committee includes Reps. Lyndon Yearick, Charlie Postles and Rich Collins; Kent County Commissioners Jim Hosfelt and Glenn Howell; Kent County Sheriff Jason Mollohan; and Kent County GOP chair, retired Maj. Gen. Henry McCann.

"I fully support the election of David Anderson. I appreciate his knowledge of the issues that are so important to our state and nation today. I know he will use his influence to work with others to help every child receive a quality education, to improve public safety and to create an environment in Delaware where businesses with good-paying jobs can thrive,” said Anderson’s honorary campaign chair, Sen. Bryant Richardson.

The free, family-friendly event will include food and refreshments, community information and entertainment.
