The wasted public dollars in Chuck's essay (above) refers, in part, to unnecessary work being done by DelDOT contractors on Vance Neck Road near Middletown.......A few weeks ago, Chuck sent this along to the News Journal ~
Today a crew started ripping up intact road bed in front of my home, and replacing sections with new blacktop. As copied to you earlier in communication to DelDOT, many neighbors are loudly complaining about the waste of public money, given the construction activities east of me.

We took some photos of a few of the nearby areas marked for tomorrow's work, if you may use any of this for your watch on DelDOT and the continuing waste of public funds, or the $34M that they found and have to spend by the end of June. That's what was told to my neighbor by a road worker from Diamond Materials today.

We are excited about our slate of officers for tonight's election! 
William H. "Bill" Dunn - President
Mark W. Blake - 1st VP and Program Chair
Charles Stirk - 2nd VP and Editor of County Comments

No doubt Stoltz will take this up a peg to the Delaware Supreme Court for an appeal but for now, lets savor the sweet victory!

From facebook ~ Tom Gordon
BREAKING: Stoltz Barley Mill Plaza - Vice Chancellor Glasscock has nullified County Council's vote, siding with Save Our County and the Executive Branch. This is a major victory for the people of New Castle County!
