    At a candidates event in Claymont, Stacy Griggs dismissed Diana McWilliams’ many endorsements by saying they were from special-interest groups. I agree that at least one of her endorsements, the Delaware State Education Association, is a special-interest group. It’s an organization committed to the interests of the children of this state. DSEA endorsed McWilliams because of her commitment to education and support of teachers as professionals. For this and many other reasons, I will be voting for her for state representative in the Sixth District.
