Anthony Delcollo Elected to State Senate

On November 8th Anthony Delcollo (R) was elected state senator from the 7th Senate District.  He defeated 26-year incumbent Patricia Blevins (D) in a district where Democrats outnumber Republicans two-to-one.  His vote total was a little over 9,000, which was approximately 3,000 more votes than any statewide GOP candidate received in the same district that day.  Clearly Mr. Delcollo made great inroads among Democrats and Independents.  Congratulations to our newest state senator Anthony Delcollo!

Officer Elections

At our October 26, 2015 meeting we conducted our election of region officers.  The results were as follows:

Chairman: Mr. David W. Gilefski elected to a second term

Vice-Chairman: Dr. Kenneth James elected to a second term

Treasurer: Mrs. Genie Leake elected to a first term

The vote for each candidate was unanimous.  Thank you to the many people who took the time to make the meeting and cast your vote.

13th RD Joins Our Region!!

At the 2015 State Convention a rule change to the party bylaws resulted in the transfer of the 13th RD from the Northern New Castle Region to the Western New Castle Region.  This move was requested by the 13th RD and approved by both regions concerned.  Please welcome our friends from Elsmere to our region!!

We Have Moved!!

Well, he haven't moved that far.  Beginning in February of 2015 we will be meeting at 360 College Sq. (just across the parking lot from our old location).  Our first region meeting at the new address will be held on February 23rd.  We hope to see you then!
