The Polly Adams Mervine campaign for Senate showed today that it was already firing on all cylinders, with a whirlwind series of campaign events across the district. Joined by elected officials, community leaders, and local volunteers and supporters, Polly spoke passionately about her father’s legacy and her vision for the future.
Polly spoke about her experience growing up in Sussex County, and the values of hard work and compassion she learned at an early age. A small business owner herself, Polly proposed strengthening opportunities for entrepreneurs, while maintaining support for Delaware’s agricultural tradition. She also highlighted the need to attract new businesses and create new, high-paying jobs to ensure a strong economy for our children and future generations of Delawareans. Additionally, as a former teacher and mother of a high school student, Polly emphasized the importance of expanding and improving our education system so that all students have the opportunity to achieve their potential. She pledged to be a faithful representative for the district in Dover.
