U.S. House of Representatives
William E. (Bill) Morris is the Libertarian Party of Delaware's 2004 candidate for United States Congress.
Bill was born (1920) and raised in Versailles, Missouri (pop. 2000) and attended the University of Missouri where he obtained a B.S in chemical engineering.
After graduation, Bill moved to Elizabeth, New Jersey where he worked for the Exxon Corporation from 1943 to 1950. Bill moved to Wilmington to work at the DuPont's petroleum laboratory in Chambers Works. His technical service work included support of lead antiknock sales for petroleum refineries, which included development of programs for efficient gasoline blending. Bill is still widely known in the petroleum industry for his gasoline blending computer programs.
In August of 1975, Bill founded the Libertarian Party of Delaware.
During the last 29 years, Bill has held many positions within the LPD, including New Castle County Chair, State Treasurer and newsletter editor. This is Bill's first run for public office.
In addition to his work with the LPD, Bill also founded S-A-F-E, inc. in 1997. S-A-F-E (Seniors Against Federal Extravagance), was created to give an alternative to the bigger government proposals of AARP. SAFE members do not want to maximize their gains at the expense of younger taxpayers.
Bill and his wife of 37 years Lois live in Brandywood, located in North Wilmington. They have traveled widely including hiking trips in Europe and New Zealand. In addition to his many endeavors, Bill also plays tennis, tutors Spanish and stays busy with his three grandchildren (7 years, 4 years and 3 months). Bill says he will wage a "Get Real" campaign. It will feature a common sense foreign policy, fairness to the next generations, and recognition of the harm of the war on drugs.
