Gossett has the steady hand we need

July 3, 2020

This is a summer like none we have ever experienced, and hope we never will again. It feels like each day, there is another report of a increasing COVID-19 outbreak in Delaware, and even more across the country. Unfortunately, we in Rehoboth Beach are not immune to these developments. 

We are fortunate in Rehoboth Beach to have a candidate for city commissioner, Patrick Gossett, ready to take on this pandemic and its effects on our community.

We need a steady hand, a commissioner with intelligence, common sense, and someone who acts on data, not on hunches or feelings. This exactly describes Patrick. He is known for doing his homework, listening to all sides of any issue, and carefully considering action on behalf of all Rehoboth citizens. 

In the next year, we must re-establish confidence in the health of our community. We must reopen communication between the citizens and our city leaders.

We must get ahold of the unnecessary spending of our tax dollars, and we must reinvigorate our business community. And, as always, we must protect the very character of our city in order to prevent overdevelopment from destroying our quality of life. 

Patrick is a proven leader, having given nine years on the city commission, so he has the experience we need on our commission now.

He will hit the ground running and be an advocate for all we know and love in Rehoboth Beach.

Please join us in voting for Patrick Gossett for city commission.

For more information, you can check out his website,, for details on his positions on the pressing issues facing us.
