New Castle County: STOP Relying on Excuses NOT to Protect Our Community!

      Wilmington, DE

November 2012


From Petition Creator Thomas Smoot: THANKS to Tom Gordon and his ENTIRE STAFF at the County Executive's Office, we're well on our way to seeing drastic changes here at Governor House and within the surrounding community. I would like to SINCERELY THANK all those who signed this petition. YOU came out of your "little worlds" and spoke out against a rapidly decaying community. While we still have much work ahead, the New Castle County community at large can rest easily knowing that we'll always have YOUR support. God Bless, THANK YOU and Happy Thanksgiving!

The Governor House Condominium Community is home to MANY children and elderly. On a regular basis, DRUGS (i.e heroin and cocaine) pass through the community WITHOUT care or concern from ANYONE; including our "Police", Government & Community "management".

      We're getting stronger! Please keep spreading the word! The deadline has been extended to March 31. 2013 for this purpose!

      Did you notice the picture change?

      Whether you live in my community or not, the issue still remains a HUGE one. While I realize that Governor House is certainly NOT the only community that suffers an "uncontrollable" drug problem, it IS however most likely the ONLY ONE lacking adequate police presence. This is reprehensible at best. WHY do we have "police"?! THANK YOU to those of you who already signed and passed the word! PLEASE keep up the fine work!

    2. We're GAINING Support!!!

      Thomas Smoot
      Petition Organizer

      First of all, I'd like to sincerely THANK all those who took the time to READ AND SIGN my petition to restore order to the Governor House Community and New Castle County. It is disheartening to know that Police, Government and one's OWN community remain so incredibly apathetic to such a heinous problem!

      Moving forward, this is OUR campaign; whether you live here or not! TOGETHER, WE will restore ORDER with the help of concerned New Castle County officials such as Tom Gordon.

      KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, EVERYONE! PASS THE WORD! Without YOU, we cannot possibly restore LAW AND ORDER!

      When you are ready to say, "who gives a damn", think to yourselves: What if this were YOUR community? What if YOUR child picked up a heroin needle while waiting at the bus stop? What if YOUR elderly parent or grandparent stepped on a needle or was caught in crossfire? How would YOU feel?

      Whenever possible, I will do my very best to produce more updates.

      If folks be getting robbed and mugged and be taking the drugs then folks ain't buying Captain Crunch.

      • about 2 years ago

      This is of great concern because of the safety for senior citizens and children not being top priority.

      Police and governments are jobs to be done to serve and protect people of the community. Ignoring problems is wrong for such folk to be doing so.

      We are sick and tired of excuses as to why adequate "Police protection" cannot be afforded the Governor House Community.
