A Note From County Executive Meyer
I'm excited we're looking to a new future for the county's most valuable asset - Wilmington Airport. Last week we announced the creation of a task force that will examine new possibilities and ways we can grow business for the airport and return value for residents of New Castle County.

We've also released the second episode of our new serial podcast, PodCounty, with our longest serving councilperson, Penrose Hollins. Next week we'll release the third episode, an interview with transgender rights activist Sarah McBride. Make sure to subscribe and follow on your preferred podcast platform.

I also want to congratulate retiring Paramedics Chief Larry Tan on over 37 years of dedicated service to the citizens of New Castle County. In Chief Tan's 19 years in leadership he brought the community closer to the paramedic service and helped create record cardiac arrest survival rates. To see video of Chief Tan's retirement ceremony, CLICK HERE .

We all have choices in life. Chief Tan chose to spend over 37 years working around the clock to give you and your loved ones a better chance at survival. Thank you Chief Tan.
