Sussex County Council Candidate

Mark Schaeffer

District 3


I am currently serving as the 3rd District Councilman on the Sussex County Council. The 3rd District includes the Delaware Bay and Atlantic coast communities, including the Broadkill Beach area, Dewey Beach, Henlopen Acres, Lewes, Long Neck, Primehook Beach, Rehoboth Beach, and Slaughter Beach.

My top priorities for Sussex County include responsible land management, public safety, economic growth, fiscal accountability, and protecting property rights.

I'm committed to building and maintaining a true partnership with my constituents. My first responsibility is to provide assistance and opportunity to the people who have entrusted me with this office. Communication is vital to accomplishing that mission, so I created this website to be a means through which I can interact more effectively with the people of the 3rd district. Making Sussex County government more accessible and more responsive to the needs of our residents and business community is a job that never ends. There's always more to do, so my goal is to ensure that your concerns are addressed with the level of service, respect, and attention you deserve.

Whether you need help with problems you may encounter when dealing with the County government and its agencies or seek information about things like business opportunities, veterans' resources, and community programs, I appreciate the importance of your concerns. I want to do whatever I can to assist you and facilitate your participation in shaping Sussex County's future to the fullest extent possible.
