God I wish I lived in the 22nd district in Delaware! This is the home of Steve Newton, and he is running for House Representative for his district as an Independent. I could care less what party he is with, because he is a great guy! If there is one voice in this election cycle that represents the best views on education, Steve Newton is the one! And he also has a great handle on many of the other ailments Delaware is facing. Transportation, financial matters, he’s got it covered!
I’ve known Steve for about four months, but I didn’t officially meet him until a couple weeks ago. We met for lunch, and talked about special education in Delaware. That night I attended the primary candidate forum up in Pike’s Creek, and watched as the three other candidates kept saying “I agree with Steve”. The first time I heard of Steve was on Kilroy’s Delaware. He commented on a story I was writing on there, and what impressed me the most was how much he helped a friend of mine, who was also commenting. Nobody knew the connection at the time, but her response was “We need more Steve Newton’s in the world.” The fact that Steve could touch someone who doesn’t even live in Delaware is just one example of how his knowledge and experience can truly help the people of the 1st state!
Delaware needs a fresh new voice in Legislative Hall. One that isn’t tainted by all the Markell years. One that believes education needs to be returned to the school districts and special education needs to be massively revamped in this state. What makes Steve even more awesome is he is also an advocate for parents who are having difficulty at IEP meetings. He has helped children in many states across our country.
So to my readers in the 22nd District, vote for a person who will help to make education better. Don’t vote for the same old guy you always have. Vote for Steve Newton!
