  • Candidate Questions

  • Education Equity

  • No

    I believe we need to expand the SRO program and mandate constables in all schools to protect our students.

  • Yes

    I believe in the use of restorative practices as one of many tools that schools can use to prevent & respond to student misbehavior. A therapeutic approach is not in the absence of consequences, so the continued use of exclusionary practices of suspension & expulsion cannot be abandoned for the most serious and/or repeat offenses.

  • Immigrants’ Rights

  • No

    Providing tax-payer funded healthcare for illegal immigrants of any age only serves to exacerbate an already untenable situation that is impacting all other aspects of the public sector (health systems, education, infrastructure, housing, etc.)

  • No
  • Smart Justice

  • No

    Police agencies have a robust internal investigation system and ultimately are subject to investigations from the Department of Justice. Just as any other public employee has rights of confidentiality, so to should our honorable public safety employees, police officers, and State Troopers.

  • No

    Police agencies already have citizen oversight committees.

  • No

    Its about public safety and not the diminished rights of a criminal. If a person is on probation they can & should be incarcerated if they present with drugs in a urinalysis, or possession of alcohol for a multi-time DUI offender, or Halloween candy and costumes on Halloween night for sex offenders. Also, probationers that refuse to receive mandated counseling & other services should be incarcerated to ensure services are provided.

  • No

    If a criminal is not willing to take the steps to petition for expungement, it should not be automatic. If someone truly chooses a start fresh and to live the rest of their lives as law-abiding citizens, taking the time and effort to petition for expungement is the first sign of that commitment.

  • No

    Many times, cases terminated in the favor of criminals are due to plea bargains.

  • No

    Paying one's debt to society is an obligation that needs to be upheld.

  • Reproductive Freedom

  • No

    I am pro-life

  • No

    I am pro-life

  • No

    We already spend an adequate amount for all healthcare services at tax-payer expense.

  • Voting Rights

  • No

    These protections already exist within the law. There is no need for more legislation. There is no voter suppression of any kind in the state of Delaware.

  • No

    Our voting system works perfectly fine and mail-in ballots are unconstitutional.

  • No

    Our current system is what I prefer.
