Retired Police Officer and Educator Bill Alexander to challenge Sen Poore in the 12th Sentate District

ST. GEORGES – Bill Alexander has filed as a Republican candidate with the Department of Elections to represent the 12thSenatorial District.  Alexander is a first-time candidate for public office and looks to be a fresh voice with a very different perspective than the Democrat incumbent.

An Army and National Guard veteran, and retired Delaware state trooper who served 25 years with the Delaware State Police, Alexander currently works as a full-time faculty member at Delaware Technical Community College and operates a small business specializing in defensive driving instruction.

“It’s time we return to the concept that elected officials serve the people who elected them to office, not the other way around.  Regardless of party affiliation, personal beliefs, or place in society, all people are created equally, and deserve to be represented equally, by a person who has truly and clearly vowed to do so,” stated Alexander

“I’m running to ensure safety, fairness, and prosperity for everyone”, declares Alexander.  “I believe that the key to stronger communities is safer streets.  This includes a renewed respect for all police and first responders. I’m also looking to reduce fatalities and injuries on our highways” stated Alexander.

In addition to public safety, Alexander seeks to ensure that government treats everyone in a fair way. This includes getting every kid the best education possible regardless of their background or zip code. “Teachers and principals need the tools to promote success in the classroom,” remarked Alexander.  I also believe that we should lower taxes to put more money in the pockets of workers so they can support their families. Prosperity can unite us.  We need policies to bring us together, create jobs that comfortably support a family and don’t divide us”, said Alexander.

The 12th Senatorial District includes New Castle, Delaware City, St. Georges, Port Penn, Red Lion, Bear, and northern Middletown.
