  • About Bill

  • 12
  • Senate
  • Currently, I work as a college educator in the Criminal Justice Department at Delaware Technical Community College. I am a retired Delaware State Trooper (25 years), a U.S. Army veteran, a small business owner, husband, father and grandfather.

  • Candidate Questions

  • Education Equity

  • No

    Active shooters and other violent would-be offenders can cause great lethality among the children and staff members at a school. Having a well-trained, armed presence at a school is a clear deterrent to such a potentiality.

  • No

    As a Constitutionalist, I believe in due process for all individuals under the 5th Amendment, and systematic due process for all organizations under the principles of the 14th Amendment. Fairness is key, and should be similar across the board.

  • Immigrants’ Rights

  • No

    Any child who needs medical attention should be afforded that opportunity, regardless of citizenship status. However, enacting legislation designed to promote healthcare for those who have illegally entered the U.S. is simply unfair to those who have taken the proper measures to obtain a path to legal citizenship.

  • No
  • Smart Justice

  • No

    Police officers need protection, given the nature of their duties. Dismantling LEOBOR is simply a very bad idea. However, I strongly support alternate measures aimed at invoking police transparency, and creating a strong partnership between police and communities. The police-community partnership is a proven effective means to reduce crime, and increase the quality of life for all.

  • No

    Community members should be involved in the transparency process with police, but are not really qualified to determine if \"misconduct\" or \"breaches of duty\" have occurred, along with any subsequent disciplinary actions. Only those who have performed the duties of a police officer, under the stressful and quick-thinking atmosphere that is frequent of the profession, can analyze an officer\'s actions with a learned lens of understanding.

  • No

    Probation is a viable alternative to incarceration, in circumstances where incarceration is often appropriate. It gives the offender a second chance, aimed at self-rehabilitation. When an offender commits an offense that violates his/her probation, he/she has forfeited the opportunity given for a probated incarceration, and needs to be rehabilitated within the residential correctional system. With the opportunities currently presented in Delaware\'s correctional system (job training, rehab counseling, etc.), the offender stands a more likely chance to become a productive element of society, and make a better life for him/herself upon release.

  • No

    It is an individual\'s responsibility to seek an expungement, and not the government\'s responsibility to intervene on that person\'s behalf. Offering assistance to explain the process and guide the person through the process is something I would support, but not simply doing it for them.

  • No

    If a case has been dismissed, nolle prossed, or there is an acquittal, the offender\'s record should indicate such.

  • Yes

    I am a supporter of reducing/eliminating government fees and reducing taxes. Accordingly, I would support such legislation, assuming that the offender\'s charges qualify for expungement.

  • Reproductive Freedom

  • No

    I have been, and always vow to be understanding of a woman’s personal reasons for her decision in terminating a pregnancy. Although a pro-life supporter, I do believe that cases of rape, incest and the health of the mother and/or baby are between a woman and her God. As a man of faith, I feel that caring, understanding, and listening are more important than professing my own ideology.

  • No

  • Voting Rights

  • No

    If all citizens do not have equal voting access, then I will certainly support legislation to ensure all eligible people have the right to vote. Before doing so, I would like to see tangible evidence that substantiates the claims of any sort of voter suppression.

  • No

    I believe that everyone should vote on Election Day unless there are true exigent circumstances. For substantiated exigent circumstances, I would support alternative means for voting so that all citizens can exercise their right to vote.

  • No

    Those convicted of a \"disqualifying felony\" do not have the right to vote at the present time. I would be open to considering legislation that reinstates such an offender\'s right to vote, with an appropriate time period involved after date of release, and no recidivism.
