Colin’s energy, common sense conservatism and willingness to stand up against the big government politicians haven’t gone unnoticed. Over the years he’s been honored by groups ranging from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award) and the Kent County Republican Party (Legislator of the Year) to the Food Bank of Delaware (Legislator of the Year for his work to help Delawareans fight hunger).
Beating the political odds is nothing new to Colin. Becoming the youngest member of the Delaware Senate when he was elected in 1994 at the age of 24, Bonini was called “the longest shot in the State of Delaware.”
Senator Bonini has now represented the citizens of Southern Kent County for 21 years and has earned a reputation as a passionate and determined voice for limited government, fiscal responsibility and economic opportunity.
In the 148th General Assembly, Senator Bonini serves on five committees: Adult & Juvenile Corrections; Banking; Highways & Transportation; Bond; and Insurance.
