Gina Space won the democratic nominee in the law director race for the City of Dover.

Douglas O’Meara had been in the position for over a decade but voters decided a change was needed with Space getting the majority.

Her reaction was surprise at receiving about 120 more in-favor votes.

“Very excited and I think that we ran a good campaign with a focus on Dover’s future and change, and the voters responded to that. I want to make sure we have an emphasis on transparency and accountability.”

There is no Republican candidate running for the position, however there’s still time for a write-in name to be on the November ballot.
