Don Ayotte receives Independent Party nod

Don Ayotte of Georgetown will run for the 20th Representa­tive District seat in Delaware’s General Assembly. The Inde­pendent Party of Delaware nominated Ayotte at it’s Sussex County Convention on May 2 with a unanimous vote of the ex­ecutive committee. Ayotte plans to officially file at the county department of elections at 1 p.m., Wednesday, May 7.

If elected, Ayotte said, he would honor and uphold the United States and Delaware constitutions, read all bills before voting on them and oppose all unconstitutional, repressive and/or defective legis­lation. “It’s time for a change, and the two major parties will not provide the change the American people desire,” he said. “Ameri­cans are tired of the two-party political system and the infight­ing between them, while nothing gets done for the average Ameri­can citizen.”

The seat is currently held by Republican Stephen Smyk of Milton. Democrat Marie Mayor of Milton has also filed to run for the seat.
