Dear {{Salutation,DefaultTo=Neighbor}},

Thank you for putting your trust in me to serve as your voice in Dover. This will be a very special year. We have a lot of work to do as it relates to education, infrastructure needs, and how we can help create jobs, and reduce crime in Wilmington and throughout Delaware.

In this newsletter, I want to share a legislative update detailing my thoughts on the key issues I have been working on in Dover this January. I am also including information on community meetings throughout the 1st District.

Finally, my Legislative Aide is Rylene Harper. She can be reached at 302-577-5312. She is a great help to me. Please call her with any issue you may have. My email address  I'm always open for suggestions.

Happy New Year and let's all have a very successful one!

Charles Potter, Jr.
State Representative, 1st District


Legislative Update

In the 148th General Assembly, I am honored to have been re-appointed as Chairman of the Gaming and Parimutuels Committee, and serve as a member of Bond Bill Committee, Education Committee, JudiciaryCommittee and Revenue and Finance Committee. 

As Chair of the Gaming and Parimutuels Committee, I want to add that I voted NO on granting Delaware casinos $46 million bailout. We have greater needs for education, infrastructure, jobs and reducing crime.

In regards to education, there is much work to be done. I would like to thank Governor Jack Markell for putting together the advisory board for the Wilmington Priority Schools, based on my suggestion and the support of other city legislators. I have also submitted legislation to put a moratorium on Charter Schools in the City of Wilmington.

Finally, as your State Representative, I will do everything at the state level to help the city overcome the pockets of crime in the city, and work with the downtown businesses to make sure they have all the services they need.
