The City of Dover decided to take a wrecking ball to its economic development department in spite of 5 years of work that has brought hundreds of millions in new private investment, filled empty box stores, changed the Garrison Track into the Garrison Technology Park. We finally began to address workforce development, gained needed investment to implement a downtown strategy through Restoring Central Dover and the Downtown Development District and began business training reaching all segments of the community through the Ice House project.
We now have a committee charting strategy. While it was a mistake that got us here, it is an opportunity to get us to a consensus that could prove very beneficial to our city. The Mayor is the chair of the Economic Development Committee (thanks to my motion) and has already made some positive moves including the addition of our best expert with Read more

Saul Alinsky’s book. “Rules For Radicals,” was first named “Rules For Revolution,” and has caused untold controversy since Alinsky published the book in 1971. I realize that one diary will not be enough to communicate the content of destruction this book holds for our Republic.
When I first bought the book, I vowed to read it cover to cover before donning my pencil to write even one word. Alinsky opens in the book’s prologue by writing, “The revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, “Burn the system down!”
Alinsky’s tactics were based not on Stalin’s revolutionary violence, Read more

Delaware Governor, Jack Markell has issued the following statement re: the Delaware Supreme Court ruling that the state’s death penalty law is unconstitutional.
“I applaud the Supreme Court’s finding that the state’s death penalty law is unconstitutional. As I have come to see after careful consideration, the use of capital punishment is an instrument of imperfect justice that doesn’t make us any safer. The important concerns of death penalty proponents must be balanced by the examples of flawed testimony, innocent people on death row being exonerated, and other facts that weigh strongly against the use capital punishment. While I would have supported abolishing the death penalty legislatively, it is my hope that today’s decision will mean that we never see another death sentence in our state.”

Subject: Farmland Preservation
There has always been more than I way of looking at a problem. If all parties would keep an open mind to "out-of-the-box" ideas, positive change can be accomplished in an inexpensive way. Sussex County has the potential at generate massive amounts of electricity at a relatively low cost. By using a farm preservation method that would relegate thousands of acres of farmland to preservation without buying the land but rather leasing the land long term, we could not only induce the farmer from selling but also create environmental buffers and generate clean electricity.
If a 50 foot buffer were placed on one side of 30% of the drainage ditches located in Sussex, there are 2,000 miles of ditches in Sussex, we could generate, using solar, 532,396.8 MWs of electricity annually. Read more
