Announcing:   E Sussex Dems to meet on April 3 @ 11:30 a.m.

Shirley Price to speak at Eastern Sussex Democratic Club April 3

 Shirley Price, former Democratic Delaware state representative and a candidate for the District 4 seat on Sussex County Council, will speak at the Eastern Sussex Democratic Club Thursday, April 3. The meeting will begin at 11:30 a.m. at Bethany Blues, Route 1, Lewes, and is open to the public.

Price, a life long resident of Sussex County and a Realtor from Ocean View, has a long history of public service both in the county and statewide. Her accomplishments at the state level have been impressive in helping veterans, volunteer fire services, child abuse, environmental protection and water quality.

Price said she is looking forward to applying her strong knowledge of the state legislative process to the county’s needs.

“I fully understand how the decisions made by Sussex County Council affect our everyday lives. The county is growing and will continue to grow rapidly. We have the opportunity to shape that growth in a responsible way. There is important work to be done. We must work harder to educate constituents on county,” she said.

Lunch is provided for $15. For additional information, contact Peter Schott, president of ESDC, at 302-226-0196 or
