Letter to the Editor: Pastor shares support for Dover council candidate


I would like to express my support for Brian E. Lewis for Dover City Council 2nd District. I truly appreciate Brian’s participation in the community and determination to continue to serve. He has showed commitment, perseverance, an open mind and ear for all, and a willingness to respond to a resident’s call, and he has my admiration for his willingness to serve others, especially those who have no voice in the city of Dover.

Not only did Brian serve Kent County for four years as the former sheriff, but he has also held several leadership positions and has made meaningful strides to better the city of Dover, Kent County and his community. He has previously served as a Dover city councilman in the 2nd District, as a Capital School District board of education member and as a Dover Human Relations Commission member. He gives back to his community by volunteering time with the Code Purple mission for homelessness, the Dover Interfaith Mission for Housing, Special Olympics Delaware, the Delaware Multicultural and Civic Organization, Tracy Palmer Ministries’ community outreach and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, just to name a few.

Brian Lewis has supported my ministry and me by volunteering time, assisting with paperwork and obtaining sponsorships for events that we host in the city of Dover. Most importantly, he assists me with navigating the many different systems each town and state office has. He is always willing to help the community he lives in to be a better place, and he has a love for the people in his community. It is an honor, privilege and pleasure to work with Brian.

As with any public official, especially one willing to serve for many years in different areas of government, making tough decisions and dealing with the issues that may have been unpopular are part of the job, but never could anyone question his dedication to doing what is in the best interest of the citizens of the city of Dover’s 2nd District.
