    Newark, DE – Delmarva Power has recently been advised by its sister utility, Atlantic City Electric, and the NJ Board of Public Utilities (BPU) that scammers posing as third party energy suppliers are sending fake utility bills via email to some New Jersey and Delaware utility customers.

  • Judge rules Delaware Disclosure Law unconstitutional
    Wilmington, DE - A federal court today issued an order barring enforcement of a recently adopted Delaware law that would have forced a group that publishes non-partisan voter guides to violate its members' privacy. Judge Sue L. Robinson of the United States District Court in Wilmington granted Delaware Strong Families (DSF)'s motion for a preliminary injunction, writing that Delaware's compulsory disclosure law "is so broadly worded as to include within the scope of its disclosure requirements virtually every communication made during the critical time period, no matter how indirect and u....

  • Preparing for Emergencies is Essential
    One night this March, with snow on the ground and the night air frigid, a Fox Point family of twelve saw its home destroyed. An accidental electrical fire left them without shelter, clothing, or baby supplies -- all in the blink of an eye. Thankfully, emergency responders and volunteers with the Red Cross arrived to provide for this family in its time of need. It’s not something we like to think about, but we could all find ourselves facing the same type of disaster this Fox Point family suffered. The good news for Delaware residents is that the Delmarva Region of the American Red Cross....

  • Derogación de la pena de muerte en Delaware salvará vidas
    "En este momento los representantes del estado de Delaware tienen la oportunidad de votar por un proyecto de ley que deroga la pena de muerte en Delaware. Muchas veces los oficiales electos dicen que la pena de muerte es necesaria porque protege al público—salva vidas. Aunque esta creencia puede ser sincera, un examen riguroso del sistema muestra que no es correcta. En efecto, la pena de muerte es un sistema tan propenso a hacer errores y tan costoso que obstaculiza el esfuerzo para proteger a nuestras comunidades y nos deja más vulnerables a la violencia.

  • About Sussex Tech School
    March 10, 2014 Sussex Technical School District employees are launching a letter-writing campaign as a way to influence legislators to increase state funding for the district. While on the other hand, other public school districts in Delaware, where the only option available for raising taxes is to ask the voters to approve a referendum, have been told “no” by taxpayers. In fact, Seaford voters readily defeated a proposed tax increase just recently. As legislators we must listen to our constituents and examine all aspects of this issue very closely.

  • The EITC and Free Tax Assistance/El EITC y la ayuda gratuita para impuestos.
    Here we are in February and tax season is getting under way. Preparing taxes can be confusing and complicated, with dozens of different credits and deductions to review before filing. One of the most important tax credits available to working families is the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). However, thousands of Delaware families each year fail to take advantage of it.
