Pete Schwartzkopf will make the move from the Delaware State Police to the Delaware State House of Representatives after winning the new 14th Representative District seat.

Pete SchwartzkopfSchwartzkopf earned 4,530 votes to Republican Mike Meoli's 3,932 votes for a winning percentage of 53.1 percent to 46.1 percent. Everett Wodiska of the Libertarian Party finished third with 70 votes.

Schwartzkopf, a 47-year old Lewes resident, was making his first run at public office.

He campaigned on a pledge to reduce traffic congestion in the Rehoboth Beach-Lewes corridor with responsible planning instead of runaway growth. The captain of Troop 7 of the Delaware State Police also promised to enhance public safety services in the county.

This was Meoli's first attempt at public office. The 38-year-old Rehoboth Beach resident owns McDonald's restaurants in Rehoboth and Georgetown and the Hampton Inn in Rehoboth.

Meoli, who defeated Harry "Hap" Crystal in the Republican Primary in September, campaigned this fall to stop upzonings, deal with his district's infrastructure needs, and work for a leaner and more efficent government in Dover.

Wodiska, a 40-year-old Libertarian from near Rehoboth Beach, was also making his first run at public office. If elected, he said he would have worked with DelDOT to improve transportation in the district, balance economic growth and environmental protection, and forced state agencies to attend Sussex County Planning & Zoning meetings.
