Delaware Senate Education Committee’s MASSIVE Shake-Up

While the Delaware House Education Committee grew, it appears the Senate Education Committee is shrinking.  What used to be eight is now five with new members appearing and longtime members now gone.  It appears to be a boy’s club now!

The Chair of the Senate Education Committee is still Senator David Sokola.  No longer on the committee are Senators Ernie Lopez, Bethany Hall-Long, Margaret Rose-Henry, Robert Marshall, and Nicole Poore.  Sticking around are Senators Bryan Townsend and Brian Pettyjohn.  The two new Delaware Senators, Jack Walsh and Anthony Delcollo round out the committee.  I have to wonder what prompted this.  It is now three Democrats and two Republicans.  I can understand why Hall-Long and Poore aren’t on it anymore.  Hall-Long is the new Lieutenant Governor and Poore is the new Senate Majority Whip.  I have a feeling there is a story here so I will see what I can find out.

I do find it very odd there are NO females on this committee.  Nor are there any African-Americans either.  This could get very interesting…
