Unofficial election results indicate that Sussex County Council will keep their president
SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. – The unofficial results are in. Early results indicate that Incumbent Sussex County Council President Michael Vincent came out on top over opponent Hunting Hastings. Vincent says he looks forward to boosting economic development and strengthening the county’s transportation and resources.
Vincent says when it comes to those resources, he hopes to increase funding for county roads, schools and jails. Plus, Vincent says that he hopes to address the fact that Sussex County doesn’t have a county health department. Another key issue for Vincent is supporting public safety, including emergency services. Vincent says that these issues will be looked at closely when it comes to addressing land use.
Vincent says that he predicts the number of tourists traveling to Sussex County will only increase in the coming years. He says that this calls for closer attention to improving infrastructure. Vincent says that this will be achieved by working closely with DelDOT.
The council president says that he’s dedicated to improving Sussex County’s more rural aspects of life. That includes working with farmers to protect agriculture, as well as bringing broadband into places that don’t currently have internet connectivity.
“I was pleased to see the large turnout we had today. We saw that people wanted to have their voice heard and I think that people did have their voice heard. They spoke. I take it as they thought I’ve been doing a good job for western Sussex.”
Vincent tells 47ABC that he was happy to see so many voters turn out and is excited to continue working with county council. “I was pleased to see the large turnout we had today. We saw that people wanted to have their voice heard and I think that people did have their voice heard. They spoke. I take it as they thought I’ve been doing a good job for western Sussex,” said Vincent.
