Campaign themes


Tedesco's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Constituent Service

  • Excerpt: "I will always answer my constituents calls and meet with community groups on a regular basis."

Jobs & Economy

  • Excerpt: "I will meet with business leaders in the community and draw from their knowledge to arrive at better decisions about how to grow our local economy. I want to explore areas where regulation and government interference leads businesses to go elsewhere. I want to see incentives to bring businesses here that are directly tied to the actual creation of jobs as opposed to just tax breaks that do not necessarily create a single job."

We need to fast track The Kent County Regional Sports Complex (KCRSC).

  • Excerpt: "This project when completed will bring jobs and economic stimulus directly to the families and businesses in our community. It is currently being held up by politicians and bureaucrats at DelDot."


  • Excerpt: "Districts, teachers and parents need greater local control over the entire process and funding. "


  • Excerpt: "The long term solution for this is to provide an environment that fosters the creation of quality jobs and improvement of our local economy. To address the immediate concerns, I will work with law enforcement to find better solutions to deal with this growing epidemic."
  • Excerpt: "I will oppose any legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of our law abiding citizens who seek only to protect themselves in this environment."
