Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,
Thank you very much to the Smyrna School District for the award at I Love Smyrna School District Day. A special thank you also goes out to Senators Lawson and Ennis, Representatives Carson and Paradee, Kent County Levy Court, and the Town of Clayton for their honors as well. Congratulations to my Superintendent when I was at Smyrna, Mrs. Debbie Wicks, for a lifetime of achievement and hard work. Good luck in whatever your future endeavors may be!
-Results of yesterday’s special election are in. The Delaware Senate will be 11 D – 10 R for the 149th General Assembly.
-We are putting the final touches on our 2017 11th District Constituent Surveys. They should be hitting mailboxes in the next couple of weeks.
-On Tuesday I have a casual meeting with some members of the DSEA from the four school districts that the 11th district represents. I am looking forward to a lively discussion about how to improve education in the First State.
-Wednesday the Small Business Caucus is taking a fieldtrip down to Georgetown. Wednesday evening is a Townsend Town Council meeting starting at 7:30 p.m.
-Our initial date/time fell through for the Governor’s visit to one of my coffee meetings. However, the Governor is still interested in visiting the coffee meetings of elected officials in order to talk about the budget. I am in the process of coordinating with his staff which of the meetings below would be best for that. Standby for more details as I make them available.
-I am happy to announce my next round of constituent meetings that will be held through March 2017. I invite constituents and non-constituents alike to stop by one of the following meetings to share a question or concern about a legislative or district matter that may be on their mind:
· COFFEE MEETING AT NEW LOCATION – Thursday, March 9th – 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. – The Drunk’n Baker (1 N. Main Street, Smyrna)
· MEET & GREET/WINE TASTING – Friday, March 17th – 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. – Harvest Ridge Winery (447 Westville Road, Marydel, DE)
· COFFEE MEETING – Tuesday, March 21st – 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. – The Young Bean Coffee Shop (314 Main Street, Clayton)
I don’t do many desserts. However, the other day some friends and I were munching on some chocolate covered espresso beans thinking about how good they would be in a milkshake but lamenting the caffeine content. Creative cooking to the rescue!
-Hershey Special Dark syrup
-vanilla ice cream
-8oz decaf coffee
Make the coffee extra strong. Let it sit so it comes up to room temperature. Add it to a blender and the chocolate syrup to taste. Add 2 scoops of the ice cream and blend until smooth. If you want it thicker, add another scoop or two.
