Democrat for 29th District Representative

...

Each candidate was asked to respond to three questions.

1.  What are the top issues you will address in your campaign and what are your plans for moving those issues forward?

 If elected I will strive to: 1) preserve our quality of life in the 29 th  district by keeping taxes low, protecting open space, and ensuring the district has properly maintained infrastructure and roads; 2) help seniors by addressing the increasing costs of prescription drugs and health care; 3) enhance our education system by reducing state mandated testing and expanding educational opportunities for students including innovative vocational programs and more rigorous courses to prepare our students for college and a twenty-first century economy.

2.  What makes you uniquely qualified for the political office you seek?

What makes me uniquely qualified is my experience in community organizations and state government.  My experience serving on the Board of the Modern Maturity Center, the Caesar Rodney School Board, the Board of Trustees for Delaware Technical Community College, and the Board of the Greater Dover Boys and Girls Club has given me real insight into the needs of the community.  Additionally, my service as a policy advisor with the Department of Safety and Homeland Security, Governor’s Legal Counsel, Attorney for the House of Representatives, and as Conflict Counsel in our Court System has given me experience with state government that will allow me to be an effective legislator.

3.  What community groups are you involved with and in what capacity?

I currently serve on the Caesar Rodney School Board, the Board of Trustees for Delaware Technical Community College, and the Board of the Greater Dover Boys and Girls Club. I have also served on the Board of the Modern Maturity Center.
