Bryon Short

Former Representative | Wilmington, DE

Bryon Short served as a representative from 2007 to 2019. He began his career as a caseworker under then-Congressman Tom Carper. After years of working in the public sector, he took his proactive approach to service to the private sector.  Bryon created a successful small business from scratch, and currently works in Wilmington rejuvenating neighborhoods.  Bryon has worked hard to improve his community by turning vacant parking lots and dilapidated abandoned buildings into working class homes that match the character of their community.

In 2007, Bryon returned to public service and was elected as a State Representative.  After his election, Bryon worked closely with Governor Jack Markell to pass a bold plan to make Delaware’s budget more sustainable, coupling smart investments in education, clean energy, and public safety with measures to reduce waste and fraud in government programs.  Bryon was also the Co-Chair of the Delaware House Small Business Caucus, which works to find new ways to support the efforts of small businesses to grow Delaware’s economy.
