With the announcement by Governor Minner of the selection of Greg Fuller to serve out the unexpired term of Register of Wills, genuine concern over the effective functioning of the office and the service provided to the citizens of Sussex County has arisen, at least in the eyes of incoming county councilman Sam Wilson (R-Greenwood).? ?

“Somebody is going to be shortchanged,” said Wilson, who will be sworn in on Jan. 6.

“There may not be a law against working for both the state and the county, but sometimes it’s best to simply do what is right when serving in elective office,” he said.? ?

Fuller, appointed to fill the term of Dave Wilson who resigned, is currently employed as a full-time State of Delaware employee with the Division of Youth Rehabilitative Services.  Given the daily operation of the office of Register of Wills, Wilson said he thought it would be difficult, if not impossible, for Fuller to do both jobs.? ?

“Historically, the row offices in Sussex County have been filled by people who are either self-employed or otherwise able to devote the time necessary to do the job.  In either instance, the citizens of the State of Delaware will not be getting what they pay for with Fuller’s two public salaries, two jobs and double-dipping,” Wilson said.? ?
