Hello, I am
Terrell A. Williams
Why I chose to run for state senate...
I am Democrat running for State Senate in Delaware’s 14th District. I have 20 years of service in the U.S. Army, in Active Duty, the Reserves and National Guard. I am a recent graduate of Western Michigan University, where I earned my law degree. I am also a graduate of Cheyney University, where I earned my Master's degree in Public Administration and a Bachelor's degree in Social Relations. I am running for Delaware State Senate to fight for police and criminal justice reform, and to provide economic opportunities for all of Delaware.
I have always wanted to run for public office and continue to serve my community for a very long time. I always thought I would run in Philly to save my native city from the doldrums of ineffective leadership. However, somewhere along the line, I fell in love with Delaware and made it my home. As I transitioned from a Philadelphian to a Delawarean, I realized that some of the same issues that affect Philadelphia also affect Delaware. Most of the communities where the residents look like me suffer from the same lack of leadership as my neighborhood back in Philadelphia. Despite my advocacy and calls for change most things remain the same. Therefore, after much reflection and encouragement from family and friends, I decided to run for Delaware State Senate District 14 (Middletown, Townsend, Odessa, Smyrna, and Dover).
I am hoping to defeat incumbent State Senator Bruce Ennis of the 14th District. State Senator Ennis has served District 14 for over 20 years as a State Representative and State Senator. However, Senator Ennis' opposition to meaningful police and criminal justice reform is a barrier to moving Delaware forward. Additionally, Senator Ennis' lack of support publicly and legislatively for the LGTBQ+ and minority communities throughout Delaware shows why informed voting is so important.
