 Below is a comment from Claire Snyder-Hall on the failure of this amendment.

The Seaford charter bill, HS 1 for HB 121, was criticized by Common Cause Delaware Executive Director Claire Snyder-Hall.

“We’re horrified and disappointed that this bill passed. Corporations have no place in our elections — full stop,” Snyder-Hall said. “In a state with more registered businesses than residents, this bill gives wealthy outsiders the power to override the actual people of Seaford. Hopefully, it will not make it through the Senate.”
