Kilroy exploring run for Delaware Senate district 7 (Blevins)

I’ve always said, the people have greater power than their legislators but it looks like Kilroy might have to go to Dover.

Education is a mess and our valued public school teachers are being uses as a whipping post for failed education agendas that have expanded into a Wall Street ponzi scheme. One of the first things I’d do to lead the charge is get Teach for America out of our schools.

Well here is what really pissed me off to consider exploring a senate option. House Bill #23 appears to be held hostage by the speaker of the house! It mustard House Education Committee and now is stuck in the ready list. HB#23 is the legislation that will required all traditional school districts board, votech school districts board and charter school boards to digitally record all public session of school board meetings and post online for all to hear. I am getting information suggesting there is a big push-back from charter schools to stop this legislation. The legislation came out of House Education Committee on 03/27/2013 and sits there circling the feild until the speaker of the house calls it in for a landing for a vote by the Delaware House of Representatives. Word has it the bill will sit to a point its too late for senate education committee and a senate vote. So if it doesn’t come to a vote before end of legislative session I’ll be moving my senate exploratory another step. 

I have no beefs with Senator Blevins but being in the 7th senate district she hold the seat I need to get to Dover. As for all those legislators claiming to be for transparency you better figuring on add more $$$ to your war chest and that includes Markell’s little puppets! 

If I don’t win at least Blevins will have to spend some bucks defending her turf and believe me, I knock on every door in the 7th senate district. Kilroy has well over one million blog hits and will work the blogs, Facebook and Twitter like no other candidate has.

      not setup to take contributions at this time, I’ll know which direction I am going after close of this legislative session. My family has lived in this community for over 100 years so we’re $$$ big and with many legs to do lit drops. I’d rather stay the voice that I am but if Dover wants to keep the lights out re: transparency of our public schools than I must go down there and turn them on.

      As the adage states, if you want something done right, do it yourself. We need people to step up to the plate.

    Kilroy, I own a well known restaurant and I’ll be honored to hold a fundraiser for you. You put your heart and soul into pushing for this transparency and if Dover doesn’t deliver it will be a major setback for parental engagement.

    Markell and Denn are idiots for not making this an executive order! .

    You can win. She will not door knock. She got there on a fluke.
    You’d be amazed at the support you’d generate.

  6. By running you force the News Journal to have to tell the truth about education. And, running against a top dog really shows the support a policy has in its groundswell support…. it also forces them to cover their flanks, which means, she will have to choose between losing an election, or supporting the Governor….

    Point is, even if you lose, you will create a tremendous amount of good for every single school child in the state of Delaware. It will be on hell of a fight. Yes it will.

  8. @WellConnected – I am pretty sure executive orders don’t apply to school boards or districts. Maybe state-sponsored charter schools though.
