The two maps shown below both have much of the same area in them. The area around Newark Charter School. More specifically, their five-mile radius. They use that map as a base for their student enrollment. As you can see, Delaware’s 8th Senate District uses much of this same area.
Delaware Senator David Sokola is the current Senator from the 8th District. Since 1990. 26 years. Too long. We need a change.
Newark Charter School was very careful in selecting their five-mile radius. It touches upon some of the more affluent areas of New Castle County. Notice how more than a third of that radius doesn’t even exist since it is in other states? So their circle of love is more a circle of influence. Senator Sokola, who helped develop Newark Charter School and served on their board, has certainly benefited from this map. Once again, we need a change. If you live in the 8th Senate District, please consider running and making a much-needed change. 26 years is far too much.
