5th County Coun­cil Dis­trict

Newark Post - - LOCAL NEWS -

New Cas­tle County Coun­cil­woman Lisa Diller earned her third full term, eas­ily de­feat­ing Repub­li­can John Richard Thomas in the Dis­trict 5 race.

A Demo­crat, Diller earned 67 per­cent of the vote com­pared to Thomas’ 33 per­cent.

Diller felt she had a good chance to win com­ing into the elec­tion, and noted the “steady stream of peo­ple” vot­ing at Downes El­e­men­tary School on Tues­day.

The abil­ity to serve her dis­trict is a priv­i­lege, she said, cred­it­ing her vic­tor y to her time spent do­ing com­mu­nity work.

Diller rep­re­sents Dis­trict 5, which in­cludes most of Ne­wark, plus other neigh­bor­hoods along the Route 4 cor­ri­dor.

A res­i­dent of Wil­liams­burg Vil­lage, Diller is a pas­tor and an ad­junct pro­fes­sor at Wilm­ing­ton Univer­sity.

She plans to con­tinue work­ing to crack down on the il­le­gal use of ATVs and dirt bikes, which is a par­tic­u­lar prob­lem in parks and open spa­ces be­hind the neigh­bor­hoods along Route 4.

“Peo­ple can’t use their back­yards be­cause th­ese things are mak­ing so much noise any­time it’s a nice day,” she said pre­vi­ously.
