Senator Carper Statement on the Passing of Former Wilmington City Council President Ted Blunt

Today, U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.) issued the following statement on the passing of former Wilmington City Council President Ted Blunt: 

Martha and I are saddened to hear of the passing of Ted Blunt. I had the privilege and joy of knowing Ted for more than 30 years as a fellow public servant, working with him to make Wilmington and New Castle County a better place to live and work. He was also the best basketball player I’ve ever stepped foot on a court with! 

“Ted was a devoted husband who, with his wife Alice, helped raise three of the most amazing daughters a father could ask for, and I was privileged to hire one of his daughters as an intern many years ago. He had a remarkable life and Delaware is a better place because of his work and devotion to the First State.”
