MEET ROB SEBASTIANO
My name is Robert Sebastiano and I am running for Delaware State Senate 14 because I want to continue the great work of Senator Ennis!
I am married to my wonderful wife Laura and we have three young children. I reside in Smyrna and love living in Delaware and I enjoy the rich mix of cultures and communities we have in the State and within Senate District 14.
My whole life I have had a passion for the process and procedure of democracy and believe we need to stay true to the cause of the Republic -no matter what party we ultimately belong to. I am running as Democrat because I truly believe that the Democratic achievements of the New Deal and Great Society made this country the most dynamic and prosperous country in the world. We need to continue to improve the lives of Delawareans and use common sense regarding economic, debt, and budget issues. I grew up in a union household that understood that hard work will lead to better outcomes. Therefore, I am a strong union supporter that believes all workers have the right to collective bargain for fair treatment from their employer.
Currently, I am employed by the State of Delaware (so I understand the pain of fellow state employees who have not seen a real salary raise in decades!). I have previously worked for the Delaware General Assembly within the non-partisan Controller General’s Office, so I am familiar with the process of legislation and how to work with all political parties. In addition, I have extensive experience with the JFC budgetary process regarding drafting and support of the Budget, Bond, and Grant in Aid bills. At this time, I feel that my progressive ideas with a common sense approach would greatly benefit the State of Delaware.
