Let's Get D To D.C.
My name is Demitri Theodoropoulos and I’m on a mission to get big money out of politics.
That’s why I’m running for U.S. Senate this November.
Most people know me as the owner of Wonderland Records, an historic music shop that has
served the record buying public of Northern Delaware for more than 40 years. Yet my
connection to the first state goes back much further than this.
I first moved to Delaware at the age of seven and spent the duration of my childhood and
teenage years growing up here.
After receiving my BS in engineering from the University of Delaware, I was hired by ILC Dover
(International Latex Corporation), a prime contractor for NASA, responsible for designing and
upgrading space suits for our astronauts. In my 7 years working with the agency, I contributed to
the development and advancement of space travel by designing improvements to the existing
spacesuit model. I also developed some of the parts that were used on the Mars Rover in 2003.
After that , I set myself to working on an entirely different kind of mission; saving a vital piece of
Delaware history from disappearing forever. Wonderland Records is Delaware’s oldest
remaining record store. Having first opened its doors to the public in 1972, it quickly achieved
iconic status among local musicians, who sometimes went on to form successful bands after
meeting each other for the first time there.
In 2003, Wonderland was on the verge of being closed. I knew I couldn’t allow this to happen.
So, I purchased the business.
It is my experience as an engineer and as a business owner that have laid the groundwork for
my decision to run for U.S. Senate. As an engineer, I solved problems. As a business owner, I
saved a piece of history. I intend to do the same with the Senate. Specifically, I will:
1. Solve the problem of campaign finance corruption!
2. Salvage the power of voters to elect leaders who will actually represent them.

can do to put a stop to it. Please read my mission statement and, the numerous educational
articles you will find on this site.
