Ken Simpler, Delaware State Treasurer

“Bryan and I have spent much time discussing what is good for Delaware and I know he will carry those conversations with him at the state level. He has a proven track record and experience at the executive level that will be very beneficial for him in Dover. His business skillsets and background will greatly benefit him in the General Assembly.”

 

Alan Levine, Former Secretary Delaware Economic Development Office

“I have known Bryan for almost 15 years and I am amazed by his vision and drive. He is the catalyst to lead Milford through this growth and I know he will do it for the state. Bryan is amazing at what he does. This will be a bit of a loss for Milford, but it is good to know he is not going anywhere.”

Senator Gary Simpson
“I am just so happy that Bryan has stepped up to the plate, he’s doing a great job as the Mayor of Milford as I’m sure everyone here would agree. Not only do I see Republican support, but I see Democratic support as well. I’ve always said that I could never be elected to the Senate without Democratic support. I know that, together, Republican and Democrat, we can support this young man for what he is planning to do in the future.”

Representative Harvey Kenton
 
“He is brilliant, well-liked and has a vision that I think could take the state to the next level. I was very pleased that he came to me before filing so that I could make my announcement. It says a lot about his character that he would do something like that and I am behind him completely.”

Representative Dave & Carolyn Wilson

David Sauls -Retired Veteran, Former NAACP President 

“He always says ‘what do you need’,” Sauls said. “He is always wanting to help this community. He asks, ‘What are your thoughts, David?’ It’s not like he is trying to get something out of me, but that he wants to help. I am part of the NAACP in Milford. Kids coming out to events and Bryan speaks to them, takes photos with them. You don’t see that too often, but Bryan does that. I’m so happy he’s running. I hope people see that he will make a great Representative.”

 

Sara Pletcher – President of Downtown Milford, Inc.

“As Mayor of Milford, Bryan’s focus for downtown was brought to life with the Milford Rebirth Plan in 2015,” Pletcher said. “To this day, it shapes the direction in which the City, DMI, business owners and downtown non-profits forge ahead. It will continue to shape Milford long after Bryan has left office. Bryan’s vision, of course, expanded beyond the interior walls of this city. I am not going to list all the great successes he has produced, but in four years, Bryan has had a powerful impact. The new Bayhealth Hospital, Nemours, Nationwide, the new Route 14 crossover, which broke ground on Monday, a proposed interloop transportation system, the Airport Road revamp and our increased police patrols. These are all pertinent to Milford’s future. With a resume like that, I have no doubt that Bryan will be successful as a state representative for the 36th district.”

 

Garret Grier – Local Business Owner, Duck-In Car Wash

“Bryan Shupe has my full endorsement for House Seat 36 in this upcoming November election, said Grier. “Bryan is a strong candidate with a history of leadership experience as Mayor of Milford. Bryan has managed to be a successful entrepreneur while treating the Milford Mayor position like it’s a full-time job. Bryan has represented the city with class, dedication, and professionalism over the past four years. There’s no doubt his drive to see Delaware and Sussex County prosper will benefit us in the years ahead. I strongly encourage residents in the 36th district to support Bryan as he runs for election in November.”

Duane Fox, Former Chief Carlisle Fire Company

“I know that with Bryan in Dover, we will still have a friendly face helping the fire service. I know that he will work to help bring us into the 21st Century. He knows that as a volunteer organization, we save a lot of taxpayer money and that we need state support to continue providing the services we do.”

 

 

Bob Longo, Milton Police Chief

“Bryan is young and enthusiastic. In the year I have lived in this town, he has put the community above himself. I think it is what leaders should do. As a leader myself, when I see those qualities in another leader, they have my undying support.”

 

Andy Stevens, Pastor Church of God

“I have had the pleasure of working with Bryan over the years. As the Chairman of the Economic Development Committee with the Chamber of Commerce, Bryan has attended with Eric Norenberg, the City Manager, at almost every meeting. He is very involved, and I am honored to support him for his bid for state office.”

 

Archie Campbell, Milford City Council 

“Bryan is one of the greatest guys and he taught me much about politics. He has done amazing things for Milford and I know he will just as well at the state level. I hope I can do just as good a job as Mayor as he did.”

 

 

Dave Vezmar, Milford School Board Member

“Bryan has done an excellent job for the town. If he can do this much for our City, there is nothing he can’t do at the state level.”

John Gilmore, Milford Resident

“I have been in touch with Bryan since he was elected Mayor. I send him cards of encouragement. I admire him being such a young man who understands what it means to be a good public servant.”

Corrine & Jim Goodwin, Milford Residents

“We have known Bryan since he was around 16 years old and I always knew he would turn out well. He will be excellent as a State Representative because he has done wonders for Milford. He will be one of the best we have had.”
