DON'T TRY TO TELL DISENFRANCHISED VOTERS THAT ADAMS' SENATE BILL 304 IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.
Senator Thurman Adams has not released House Bill 170 for a vote.
„« House bill 170 would add two at-large members to the Sussex County Council this year.
„« House bill 170 would increase the Sussex County Council from 5 to 7 members.
„« The two additional members will increase the chance that votes for increased development in the eastern, as well as other parts of the county will be given extended consideration, by their additional voices and thinking.
Senator Adams, will not allow HB 170 out of committee for a vote.
„« Instead he introduced Senate Bill 304 to add 2 districts, rather than an additional 2 members at large.
„« His bill would not take effect until the 2012 elections. That is a full six years away. Clearly that protects the current county council from any changes for a whole six years.
„« Six years is much too long to wait for a more balanced Sussex County Council.
We are sure Senator Adams has a reason why he has decided to ignore the large number of individuals who have asked him to bring HB 170 to the floor for a vote.
„« Clearly with his bill not having effect for six years, it leads one to speculate that he is stalling for time.
„« We¡¦d like to know what the motivation is for this obvious stalling tactic. We are inviting him to explain.
Please join us in asking the Senator this question and demanding that he release HB 170 to the floor for a vote.
He can be reached at Legislative Hall, PO Box 1401 Dover, DE 19903.
