Feb 27, 2012

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.  (AP) - New commissionerss in Delaware's beach towns say their biggest challenge is balancing the interests of full-time residents and those who visit or live there part-time.

Mark Hunker, the newest commissioner in Rehoboth Beach, tells The Daily Times (http://bit.ly/wgsNLJ) that his vote goes to what he believes the community needs, and he favors the masses over the few. Hunker, who is gay and owns two restaurants, says he doesn't want to represent only gay community interests or business interests.
