Opal/ski, 32, has filed to run for the State Legislature in Senate District 19. He will challenge 34- year incumbent and Senate Pro Tem Thurman G. Adams Jr. (D). Opal/ski, who moved to Delaware in 1992, has long been involved in politics, and at many levels. With a passion for commu- nity involvement including grass- roots efforts and political activism that has taken him from following local and state government issues to testifying in front of Legislative committees, all the way to a Senate run for the same District 19 seat in 2002, he said, "that same passion still burns strong, when something just feels right to the extent that you know you can and will make a positive and last- ing impact, you have to follow your heart and act on it." As a service technician with JC Ehrlich Co. in Bridgeville covering the entire Delmarva Peninsula he travels a very large area and said, "I talk to people all over the downstate area including all of District 19, and people all over the area are craving new leadership with fresh ideas. They're ready as much as I am to shake things up a little, and I look forward to doing just that once elected." Liberty Fund announces election endorsements In the general election to be held Tuesday, Nov. 7, the Delaware Liberty Fund has endorsed a number of candidates, including Democrats Joseph "Beau" B/den III for Attorney General and incumbent Jack Markell for Treasurer. In local races, the Liberty Fund has endorsed Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, D-Rehoboth, for the. District 14 House seat and Sen. George Bunting, D-Bethany Beach, for the District 20 Senate seat. In the District 36 House of Representatives Election, the organization has endorsed Democrat Paul Hayes: In House Districts 37, Georgetown and Lewes, and District 41, Laurel, no candidate was endorsed by the Liberty Fund. AG candidates to address chamber mixer The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce along with two coastal chambers, Lewes and Rehoboth- Dewey, are hosting a Joint Chamber Political Presentation and Mixer from 4:30 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 6, at the Inn at Canal Square in Lewes.

Each candidate will have 30 min- utes to present his views and goals before the members of the three Chambers. After the presenta- tions, there will be an opportunity to network with fellow business- people and political aficionados from all over the state, and to enjoy the waterfront views from the Inn at Canal Square.
