Rich Collins, a Republican from Millsboro, filed May 20 to run in Delaware's House District 41.
The district includes Millsboro, Dagsboro, Frankford, Selbyville and Gumboro.
Collins has served as Positive Growth Alliance executive director since 2001, where he says he works to defend individual freedoms and to keep the public informed of government actions.
A nearly lifelong Sussex County resident, Collins lives on the outskirts of Millsboro. He owns Access Insurance and Financial Services, on Route 113 near Millsboro and has served Sussex County in the insurance field since 1979.
Collins said if elected, he has four major goals: building a team of like-minded elected officials to restore the Delaware economy; reforming the regulatory process to enhance and encourage job creation; returning honesty to government operations; and returning control of government to citizens by keeping them fully informed.
Collins will host a kick-off event where citizens can come and meet him in a relaxed atmosphere. He can be contacted by his cell phone at 302-381-1610 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Collins is the only candidate who has filed for the seat. Incumbent John Atkins, a Democrat from Millsboro, has not yet filed. The filing deadline for all candidates is July 8.
