Bennett and Parrott go Head to Head in 32nd District Race

DOVER, Del.- Ellis Parrott is a former Dover police officer and Kent County judge with more than 20 years experience under his belt, while Andria Bennett is a legislative aide to several state senators. Each are hoping to fill the 32nd District Seat in Legislative Hall come January.

Ellis Parrott spent much of his time as a county judge mediating disagreements. He says his experience in the courtroom will help him and other Republicans make headway in the General Assembly.

"Hopefully if I get in and some other republicans get in, we can end the one party rule and get some compromising," Parrott said.

But before he can take the oath of office in January, Parrott must first get through the general election in November by facing off against his Democratric opponent Andria Bennett.

Bennett says her focus in life has been helping others and that will continue in the General Assembly.

"My background was all public service," she said. "I was a legislative aide and I worked for Delaware helpline, and then I was solving people's problems."

Parrott says he was prompted to run because he sees problems in the district he believes he can help solve.

"A lot of home invasions have happened recently, we need to put an end to that," he said. "We need more police and we need stiffer penalties."

For both candidates, the next eight weeks will involve a lot of door knocking to get their message out to voters in the 32nd district.

"Between now and then I want to continue to work hard and show the people that I care," Bennett said. "And that I'm willing to do the job they need done."
