Running for Lieutenant Governor

Donyale Hall

GOP Candidate for Delaware Lieutenant Governor

My name is Donyale Hall, and I'm running for Lieutenant Governor of the great state of Delaware. As a businesswoman, wife, mother, United States Air Force veteran and community advocate, it has been painful to watch the steady decline in our state. Private citizens here have been diligently seeking means and ways to address the distress of our impoverished communities, disengaged youth and complete lack of legitimate paths to viable economic opportunity and sustainability. These efforts have been of little or no avail. The prevailing consensus is that the State of Delaware needs representation by someone who will no longer perpetuate failed or broken policy and will be a real champion of change by tackling the socio-economic inequalities plaguing our state.

I have humbly accepted this challenge.

Running for Insurance Commissioner

Dr. Julia Pillsbury

GOP Candidate for Delaware Insurance Commissioner

I graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1981 and I have served on active duty in the US Army and Air Force. When I separated from the military and started in private practice, my Mother advised me to learn about medical coding, billing and reimbursement. In 1992 the coding system was changed. I was selected to represent the DE Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to become our coding trainer. I later became our Chapter President. This lead to my nomination to represent the national AAP on the American Medical Association (AMA) Practice Expense Advisory Committee (PEAC). I was also appointed to the AAP Committee on Coding and Reimbursement which later became the Committee on Coding and Nomenclature.

Upon the retirement of the PEAC, I served on the AMA Resource Based Relative Value Unit Committee. I was later appointed to the AMA highest committee, the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Editorial Panel.

During these assignments I owned and practiced Pediatrics in the Center for Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine (CPAM). CPAM and I have won many awards from the CDC, State of DE, payers and consumer groups for our outstanding patient care, management and patient advocacy. I have also served on and currently chair the State’s Medicaid Medical Care Advisory Committee (MCAC) for many years. I have testified at many hearings to advocate for my patients and primary care providers.

I feel my many years as a provider, adviser and consumer advocate make me well suited to become the Insurance Commissioner. While I realize I will have much to learn about the position, I feel I have much experience as a business owner. Furthermore, I feel I have much to offer as health care changes. I look forward to serving as Insurance Commissioner.
