Veterans Address Their Concerns With Delaware Primary Candidates

Posted: Aug 08, 2018 10:14 PM Updated:

CAMDEN, Del.- The Camden VFW Post 3238 hosted a town hall meeting on Wednesday night to give local veterans the chance to address their state and federal candidates, ahead of the September 6 Delaware primary election. 

From healthcare to returning to civilian life after service to opioid addiction candidates were able to provide a short platform for veterans. But while many of the candidates at Wednesday night's town hall were veterans themselves, State Legislative Officer for the VFW Marc Garduno says he hopes veterans voices will soon be heard in the government. 

"When we consider that so many political races here in this area are decided by a scant, few votes. When you're talking about a few hundred, I'm certain that in this area that a few hundred votes are veteran votes that could translate to make a big difference in the outcome of elections," Garduno said. 

Garduno said there are a number of issues that he would like to tackle with the new state and federal leaders in Delaware, like tax cuts for veterans and colleges taking advantage of the G.I. Bill. 

The upcoming primary election is set for September 6th in Delaware.

    Many people associate the Delaware State Fair with extremely hot weather --- some of them even felt the oppressively warm temperature on Thursday was appropriate for the event as it kicked off its centennial celebration.
