Message from the Town Manager

Thanks for visiting our Town website! I hope you will visit it often and in turn, whether you’re a year round or seasonal resident, a local business owner, employee, or visitor, use it to stay abreast of what’s going on in beautiful Ocean View, Delaware! From projects and seasonal events to public safety; Town Council agenda and our Town meeting schedules, we strive to provide you the information you need to stay engaged.  To that end, we are currently exploring our options for an update to the current website.  Stay tuned for what we expect will be a more user friendly and attractive site.

Further, as your new Town Manager, as of January 2019, it is my sincere pleasure to serve the citizens of Ocean View.  Having visited and enjoyed the area for over two decades with my family and friends, being here full-time and getting to further engage in the community is something I’ve hoped for. I’ve served in administrative roles of local government in the State since 1990, so I’m familiar with the many and varied issues that face our towns and will put my experience to work in maintaining the high quality of life that Ocean View offers.

Serving as Town Manager is a privilege that I don’t take lightly.  You will find that I will actively work alongside our Mayor and Council, Police Department, dedicated staff, and commissions to operate an efficient, responsive and progressive organization.   Rest assured that I will continue to be active in the State, engaged with our Legislators, serve on committees, and participate in training as necessary to ensure Ocean View is recognized and that our community is aware of and benefiting from opportunities that align with our needs. 

Cheers to the New Year – I’m so happy to join the Ocean View, Delaware team!
