Contract for a New Delaware

By State Senator Bryant L. Richardson A responsible government should provide conditions in which people can pursue their dreams. People need to feel appreciated, to have an equal opportunity to succeed and to live in a safe environment. As a candidate for governor, I believe it’s important to provide voters of all political persuasions with a vision for the future that everyone can embrace.

In some neighborhoods, people are at risk even in their homes. Human trafficking continues to make victims of young girls. People are dying of drug overdoses.
