Lee Continued from page 1 emment. It is his opinion that the growth in state government has not resulted in a proportionate growth in services to the public. "The shortcomings of the pres- ent administration in education, transportation, social services, land use, governmental efficiency and the environment are issues af- fecting the quality of our lives," he said. "I believe the purpose of government is to improve our quality of life Quality of life in Delaware as we enter the new century is the only issue, and I be- lieve we have the right to expect the very best in the nation, and that we have the resources to achieve it." Classifying himself as a politi- cal conservative, Lee said Delaware is badly run under the Gov. Tom Carper administration. He said that bigger and better fi- nancial statements and surpluses do not equate to efficient govern- ment. "This administration is not re- sponsive to its citizens," he said "The concept that Delaware has good government is ridiculous. The Brick Hotel served as a trig- ger for people to express their dis- satisfaction with an administration that doesn't serve the public. "I want to create a government that is more responsive, more effi- cient, and smaller, yet provides Rosanne Pack photo Georgetown resident Ros- alie Walls congratulates Bill Lee after the Rehoboth Beach resident and former Superior Court judge an- nounced his GOP bid for nomination for governor. more services. That might not seem possible, to reduce the size of government and increase serv- ices at the same time, but it's a matter of balance. There are ever- increasing bureaucracies but not service providers." The Rehoboth Beach resident said more teachers and social workers are needed, not more ad- ministrators and managers. He said the size of support staffs in state government offices is out of control. "I have just spent 20 years deal- ing with state inefficiency from the inside." he said. "I know it can be run better." CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 3 - December 9, 1999 - 13 Palm Beach" Cttom shutters bring classic beauty ancl simplicity to your home.

When asked if he could gauge his support in northern Delaware, he referred to presiding over the Tom Capano murder trial. Lee said his handling of the case cre- ated a unique window of opportu- nity for him to seek higher office. Because of his role in the high- profile trial, he said his name and face are known throughout Delaware. "I think that people respect the way that I handled the trial," he said. "This has given me the unique opportunity to run as a Delawarean, not just as a judge from Sussex County. I think many people in New Castle County think that I live up there, they are so used to seeing me. "And unlike some other candi- dates, I don't feel that I have to move out of Sussex County to seek statewide office." State Chamber of Commerce President John Burris, a Milford native, left southern Delaware to serve as head of that organization. In January, he is expected to for- mally announce his candidacy for the Republican nomination for governor. Other announced candidates are Speaker of the House of Repre- sentatives Terry Spence, R-Strat- ford and businessman Dennis Rochford, both of New Castle County. Lee said he is committed to staying in the race through a pri- mary if necessary, but he hopes the following months will show a clear leader.

"Right now, there are two can- didates who each claim to have more than 50 percent of the dele- gates committed to them," he said. "I am not going to quit be- cause 110 percent of the delegates are committed." Lee said he is not a perennial candidate, but he seeks the nomi- nation because he believes his candidacy will reach more voters than any other candidate in either party. He said he is unfettered by years of political deal-making and he does not owe political favors. He stated that he represents the broadest cross section of the state, and possesses leadership qualities and problem-solving skills neces- sary for the governor's office. "I did not retire from a job that I loved, and in which I had achieved some distinction, simply to seek the honor of my party's nomination," he said. "I did it be- cause I believe I offer the best, and possibly the only, opportunity to defeat Ruth Ann Minner in No- , vember." --Real Deals- III ATTENTION TO DETAIL... ...Can be found throughout this designer showcase home, offers seven bedrooms, four full baths, large master bath with jacuzzi, living room, dining room, brick floor screened porch, Florida room, wrap around deck with hot tub, two 2-car garages, finished basement, brick walkways, in-law suite with separate entrance, 4,000 sq. ft. living space, professionally land- scaped with designer trellises and mature trees on a very large lot in Rehoboth Beach.
