Welcome to the Non-Partisan Delaware Website!

Non-Partisan Delaware is a ballot qualified political organization in Delaware. We are unique from many political organizations in that we do not have a fixed platform or policy goal. Our immediate short term goals are determined each election cycle by the NPD Governing Board through the development of an internal "Strategic Plan" and we focus on achieving those goals through public information activities, lobbying policymakers in coordination with our coalition partners, and supporting candidates for public office.

Our Strategic Plan for the 2023-2024 Election Cycle includes the following priorities:

  • Cannabis Legalization

    NPD is extremely proud that in our first year of operations, we were able to assist the Delaware Cannabis Advocacy Network and the Delaware Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws to pass HB1 and HB2, legalizing personal use quantities of cannabis and creating a legal retail market.

  • Ranked Choice Voting

    NPD is coordinating with Rank the Vote Delaware to promote the study and implementation of ranked choice voting in Delaware elections.

  • Abortion, Gender & Sexual Minority, and Gun Rights

    While these issues are rarely considered together and often find little common ground between the traditional "right" and "left", NPD views all of these issues through the perspective of individual privacy and the rights of individuals to live as they choose.

  • Education, Land Use, Environment, Broadband, Criminal Justice, Other

    This catch-all refers to areas we would like to work on as opportunities arise, but have not put together a more focused and cohesive approach.

On these issues and any others, Non-Partisan Delaware hopes to provide a perspective outside the common left-vs-right paradigm based on thoughtful and thorough analysis, open but skeptical towards new information, and unconstrained by ideological dogma.

Our Board members, after years of activism, have developed a healthy skepticism of coercive, majority-imposed policies over those based on mutual consent and individual dignity. However we recognize the need for pragmatism as we seek to find ways a new and small organization on the Delaware political scene can make a positive difference!

The following response was sent to our survey.  It has been edited to include the questions for clarity:
Sorry for the delay, 

1. Why are you running for School Board?

1. I am running for school board because I believe that education is the great equalizer in society. As a product of Delaware public schools myself from Cape Henlopen (C-High!), I know firsthand the power of education to transform lives. I am committed to ensuring that all students have access to a quality education, regardless of their background. I will work to make our schools more equitable and inclusive, and I will ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed.

2.  What personal connections do you have to your local school district and community?

2. I am a volunteer in the Newark Fire Department, a former Big Brother at Stubbs Elementary, and a licensed realtor. I have children who are currently enrolled in the Christina School District, and I understand the concerns that potential parents have about the district.

3. How should district policy balance student privacy against parental rights?

3. Our school policies are part of a living document that needs to be nurtured to reflect our diverse communities. To strike the proper balance, we must continue to ask ourselves whether it is safe? Is it lawful? Does it respect the families, the educator/staff, and the community? A single misunderstanding could easily cascade into a catastrophic event. We must work hard to improve trust and understanding amongst stakeholders.

4.  What should be the district’s approach to overseeing curriculum, reading material, and lesson planning in the classrooms?

4. The district should make every effort to foster a safe and welcoming environment for all students and families. This includes being transparent about policies and procedures, showing empathy for all students, and ensuring that all students have access to the information they need. Additionally, the district should work with schools to design curriculum that reflects the rich and diverse backgrounds of the student body.

5. How well do you feel that your district currently serves students who are gifted, learning disabled, or who have other special needs? What policies does your district follow that should be improved, or adopted more widely?

5. Speaking as a parent of a child that receives special education services, I believe that the Christina School District does an exemplary job of serving students with special needs. The district has a variety of programs and services in place to support students with different learning styles and abilities. For example, the district has a gifted and talented program, a special education program, and the school for the Deaf.

However, the nationwide challenge with a literacy issue in American primary and secondary schools that was exacerbated by the pandemic has negatively impacted many students, especially those with special needs and socio-economic challenges. We definitely have a lot of opportunities to close that achievement gap.
