A teaser that shows Margaret can hold her own with anybody:
Q: With redistricting, Dewey Beach has become part of the 14th Representative District. Do you support town officials in their efforts to reduce public drunkenness and promote a family-friendly environment? Why or why not?Schwartzkopf: I believe in home rule – decisions should be made by the elected people closest to the problem or situation. I will respect that philosophy and handle issues and complaints right up to the town limits of Dewey and let their elected council members handle the town. I will always be prepared to lend assistance should they request it. I love Dewey, and I think that the town leadership should draw a line in the sand and move forward seeking a partnership with the business community to address the issues of the day.
Melson: I support efforts to reduce public drunkenness on the basis of public safety and property destruction. These laws exist. However, I find it patently absurd that someone would move next door to a nightclub and be shocked that it is loud at night and there are drunken people. No one forced you to buy there. It is your responsibility when you are purchasing property to be aware of the surrounding environment.
