Adams Big Winner
in 19th Senatorial
19th Senatorial District ...

Thurman Adams Jr. 6,397 votes
Esthelda Parker-Selby 3,655 votes

Long-time incumbent Thurman Adams Jr. had no trouble maintaining his 19th Senatorial District seat.

Adams won 6,397 votes for 63.6 percent to Esthelda Parker-Selby's 3,655 votes, or 36.4 percent of the vote.

Adams, a 74-year-old Bridgeville Democrat and the president of T.G. Adams & Sons Inc., says he is now the longest-serving Senator in Delaware history with 30 years under his belt.

"I'm going to try to keep doing the same thing I've been doing," said Adams. "I thank the people who gave me their vote of confidence. We just go on from here."

He campaigned this time on a desire to equalize funding for all school districts. The 15-term incumbent also cited the state budget shortfall as a priority.

Parker-Selby, in her first run at public office, defeated Matthew Opaliski in the Republican Primary in September.

An administrator in the Cape Henlopen School District, the 55-year-old Milton resident also cited the budget shortfall as a priority and said she wouldn't support a tax increase to balance the budget.
