Chris Rowe, Mortgage Broker, Pike Creek, Delaware

I have Called Delaware my home for 60 Years. My Home State is headed in the wrong direction and is no longer a nationally recognized economic cornerstone. I chose to join the DEGOP to help support those elected officials who will cut wasteful spending, bring balance back to Legislative Hall, reduce the size of the State Government, and promote small business, entrepreneurship, education reform and the return of the taxpayers' hard earned money to its citizens.

Weldon Satchell Jr., Construction Operations Manager, Dover, Delaware

I like being a member of the DEGOP because they share my beliefs in a smaller government, and that a life no matter how conceived, has the right to live.

Cathy Watts, Delaware Federation of Republican Women

I am a Republican because I believe in the United States Constitution and the founding principles for the cause of smaller government, lower taxes, individual liberty and freedom and the right to life as it was modeled during the Presidency of Ronald Reagan. I want to leave the America I inherited and love for my children and grandchildren.
