BAYADA’s Delaware PAC supported ten candidates throughout 2018. The PAC Board chooses candidates from both sides of the aisle that demonstrate awareness and support of home care and our issues. Of the ten candidates, all seven that were up for re-election on November 6 won! The other three will be up for reelection in 2020.
What does this mean? That the DE PAC chooses winners! It also means that none of the key legislators that we identified as home care supporters left office. This is exciting news for DE PAC members that chose to support our champions! Thank you DE PAC members! Below is a list of those we contributed to and their election status.
