“There are lots of good things to say about Senator Hocker,” says Marilyn Booker, Chair of the Sussex County Republican Committee, “but my favorite is his dedication to constituents. Any time a Sussex County citizen contacts him with an issue, he gets right on it.”

Hocker currently serves as Republican Leader in the Delaware Senate, representing Senate District 20, and is proud of his legislative achievements. From his beginnings as the 38th District Representative in 2003 to his Senate career, which he launched in 2013, Hocker has a strong record of advocating for limited government, preserving personal liberties, promoting conservative values, fighting for lower taxes, and protecting Delaware’s natural resources. He has lived in Sussex County his entire life, where he and his wife Emily have raised five children, and where he has founded and continues to operate several successful businesses.

Hocker will be speaking and answering questions, along with County Councilman John Rieley, at the Sussex County Republican Committee’s first Small Business Breakfast, which will be held on March 31st at The Ocean Grill in Long Neck.

Breakfast will be served at 7:30 am. All small business owners are welcomed. Please RSVP at: or by calling: 302-856-6323.
