Tina Fallon won another term in the Delaware House of Representatives with an easy victory over challenger Michael F. McGroerty in the 39th District race on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2000.

Tina FallonFallon totalled 4,658 votes to McGroerty's 2,273 votes, or 67.2 percent to 32.8 percent.

The 83-year-old Republican from Seaford has served in the state house since 1978. The retired teacher said she sought the office again because she still believes she can make a difference.

She said she considers the district to be her family after 22 years in office.

"This is the most important level of government," Fallon said while campaigning in front of Seaford City Hall. "I like being a representative because I have the smallest number of constituents and I keep my finger on the pulse."

Fallon said she will focus on education in her next term and particularly on restoring discipline to the classroom.

"People are concerned about discipline in the schools and so am I," she said. "You need discipline everywhere, in sports, in your job, even in what you eat."

Fallon also cited the environment, the economy, land use issues and tourism as pressing concerns.

McGroerty, a 52-year-old Democrat from Seaford, ran for the office because he felt that to help the school system he needed to be in Dover. The attorney served on the Seaford School District Board of Education for five years.
