Atkins not a full-time legislator

November 1, 2012

In the Oct. 23 Cape Gazette interview with Rep. John Atkins, it was stated, "Rep. John Atkins, 42, is a full-time legislator."

I do not believe this is accurate.  A full-time legislature is defined as one that meets throughout the year.  If I am not mistaken, the Delaware General Assembly meets only from January through June; therefore, the introduction to him in the Cape Gazette is incorrect.
