Gray files for reelection to 38th District representative seat

Ron Gray this week filed with the Sussex County Board of Elections to run for a second term. Gray, who was elected for the first time in November 2012, followed then-newly elected state Sen. Gerald Hocker as representative for the 38th District in the state House of Representatives.

“I have learned so much and met so many wonderful people during my first two years as your state representative for the 38th District,” Gray said, addressing his constituents. “I especially enjoyed helping our citizens with their interactions with state government.

“I look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones while campaigning door-to-door. With or without an opponent, I hope to be walking in your neighborhood soon.”

Gray grew up on a farm along Route 54, between Fenwick Island and Selbyville. He is a graduate of Indian River High School and has a degree in civil engineering from the University of Delaware, along with a master’s degree in business administration from Indiana University.

Gray will host a campaign kickoff party on Wednesday, July 9, under the tent at The Cove at Bayside, beginning at 6 p.m. Those who are interested in learning more about Gray and his campaign are being invited to attend.

Gray wasn’t the only state representative to file for a second term this week. District 40 Rep. Tim Dukes has also filed to run.

The Cove at Bayside is located at 31806 Lakeview Drive in Selbyville. For more information about Gray, visit
