New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer announced April 10 the upcoming departure of County Attorney Carol Dulin and the appointment of Wilson Davis to serve as county attorney.
This transition in the County Law Office will occur in early June.
"Carol has served two County Executives, the entire County Council and the people of New Castle County with dignity and excellence for many years,” said Meyer.“We look forward to Wilson Davis, with his decade of experience in service to the public, carrying on that tradition of excellence."
“It has been my privilege to work alongside County Executive Meyer and his committed team of county leaders as well as the outstanding staff in the Office of Law who work hard every day to serve the interests of our residents and our communities,” said County Attorney Carol Dulin.
“I am honored to rejoin the Office of Law as county attorney, and I look forward to again serving the residents of New Castle County,” said Wil Davis.
Davis has served as a deputy attorney general in the Delaware Department of Justice since May 2018, where he has handled a variety of litigation cases for the Department’s Civil Division.
