Who for New Castle County Council?

Folks are angry with New Castle County Council because the Democratic super-majority has brought them Work Force Housing and a 40 million dollar budget shortfall. In order to fill the vacancy in the 5th district left by the departing Councilwoman Stephanie McClellan, the Democratic party has tapped Lisa Diller. I was looking over Mrs. Diller's website and she seems like a nice lady but where does she address our county's economic woes? Where does she say she would protect her constituents from Work Force Housing? Putting a D next to your name doesn't make you a bad politician and there are plenty of good, dynamic Democrats out there but is Mrs. Diller one of them? Is she going to break rank with her party when its time to chose between her constitutents interests and staying in the good graces of the super-majority? Unless the candidate the Republicans nominate is a real sleeze bucket the good people of Newark should do themselves and the County a favor and vote for change.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting a different result. The democratic super-majority in New Castle County Council brought us these problems, it is insane to believe that election another rank and file Democrat will make things any better.
