For over a year now, many people in Delaware have felt State Senator David Sokola has served for far too long in the Delaware Senate. Today, a Republican named Meredith Chapman publicly announced she is running for State Senate in District 8.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Chapman’s resume includes the following summary of her credentials:
Award-winning, nationally-recognized digital strategist, educator, communicator and former journalist, known as @MediaMeredith. Highly motivated and polished public relations manager with expertise in higher education, public affairs, government and politics, community outreach, crisis management, multimedia and strategy development as well as relationship cultivation. Innate leader with successful track record in management, organizational development, and strategy creation and execution. More than 10 years experience with and in the Delaware news scene with work on national and global levels. Proven skills in strategic communications, project management, program development, leadership and high-profile outreach and event management.
She is the current Director for Digital Communications at the University of Delaware. This could get very interesting. What do you think? Is it time for new blood in the 8th Senate District in Delaware? I will flat-out say I believe Senator Sokola has not used his position as Chair of the Senate Education Committee without bias towards certain agendas in Delaware. A fervent charter school and standardized testing supporter, Sokola has been a lightning rod of controversy for some time.
