“Both candidates had different takes on what the most pressing problem facing Kent County is.

“Infrastructure, it’s that simple,” said Mr. Hosfelt, who is currently a Dover City councilman in the 1st District. “We can have all the residential business growth we want, but if we don’t have the infrastructure in place to support it, what good are we doing?

“We need to support initiatives like the pipeline assessment program. These are things that if we are doing it right it could’ve prevented what we had in front of Postlethwait Middle School which caused at least 300,000 gallons of wastewater to dump into the St. Jones River.”

“No matter where I go the one thing I hear from Kent County residents is they are concerned about public safety,” Mr. Hosfelt said.”
