J. Benjamin Ewing is headed back to Dover for another term as the Representative of the 35th District.

J. Benjamin EwingEwing easily dispatched challenger Quentin Wilkerson with 3,512 votes, or 92.7 percent of the vote.

The 71-year-old Bridgeville Republican has served in the state House since 1987. He campaigned on a platform that included consolidating Sussex County school districts into one district.

Even though the state Department of Education has already said such a plan wouldn't save the state money, Ewing said he intends to pursue the idea after further studying the DOE's analysis.

Ewing also said giving all citizens adequate health care and emergency services, streamlining costs to balance the state budget, and improving roads and public services were important issues.

In his first run for public office, Wilkerson, a 29-year-old Independent Party candidate from Seaford, also supported consolidating the county's school districts into one district. In addition, he wanted to repeal the state's ban on smoking in public places and supported Sheriff Robert Reed's efforts to restore law enforcement authority to the county sheriff department.
