Sincere thanks are given to Judson Bennett via the Coastal Network for sharing this Letter to the Editor from Greg Hastings. Greg Hastings wrote the following Letter to the Editor and shared it with local newspapers regarding his rematch in the 41st District. You may read the letter here:
Eighteen months ago, I left the General Assembly confident that I had served with honor and had respected the conservative views of the 41st District. The future was very uncertain, probably even doubtful I would return to the House of Representatives. I am enjoying serving on the Millsboro Town Council, and enjoying the extra time that’s been created. However, the events of the last 18 months have troubled my conscience terribly. A state government that spends every dollar it can and pays for it by raising taxes on its citizens, small businesses, and family farms is a state government that is failing the people it’s supposed to serve.
I believe the 41st District deserves representation of true conservative actions and not just tout conservative, then be swayed by party affiliation that will ultimately result in more out of control spending. I believe the 41st District deserves representation that will fight against frivolous tax increases and vote No on budgets that raises spending by 6.5% especially in an economic downturn. I believe we have not had that representation in Dover for the last two years.
And so, my conscience will not allow me to stand by and let this careless spending and millions of dollars of ridiculous special interests items cripple the State I love!
So on Friday July 9th, I filed the paperwork to seek the office of State Representative for the 41st District. If you feel the way I do about what I have just stated, I invite you to be a part of my campaign by donating your time, financial support, or just help me reach your friends and family, co-workers, and your church with my message.
It is critically important for our children and grandchildren that we return to the conservative principles that made this state the best in the nation. That is my pledge to you!
