Pro-Business Group Expands Efforts in Delaware with Formation of New PAC
Press Release from our sister organization, A Better Delaware PAC
A Better Delaware has formed the A Better Delaware PAC to participate in the 2020 election cycle
Wilmington—A Better Delaware, a pro-business, pro-jobs group that also promotes more accountability and transparency in Delaware government today announced the formation of A Better Delaware PAC to expand their advocacy efforts into 2020 campaigns.
“We must apply pressure at the grassroots level. We must educate legislators in the State House,” says founder Chris Kenny. “But we will never see real change if we keep sending the same anti-taxpayer, anti-business lawmakers back to Dover, and we must protect legislative allies who understand what makes for a stronger economy.”
A Better Delaware (ABD) was launched last year in response to the direction our state was headed due to decisions made by our lawmakers in Dover. Kenny believed the state lacked a voice for taxpayers and small businesses, and recognized that the First State was far from first when it came to economic, business, and employment rankings nationally. In fact, Delaware was consistently in the bottom for fiscal stability, employment, business climate, and tax rates.
Since then, ABD has spoken out on numerous issues impacting Delaware’s business climate, transparency in government, taxes, the Certificate of Need process, and many others. In less than a year, it has gained a following on Facebook of nearly 10,000 people.
A Better Delaware PAC takes ABD’s efforts to the next level through direct voter contact during the campaign season to help ensure the election of pro-taxpayer, pro-business, good government candidates.
“For too long, Delaware campaigns have been dominated by special interests who stand to benefit from more government spending at the expense of taxpayers,” said Kenny. “ABD PAC will be a counterweight that backs candidates who put Delaware first.”
