Sussex County Council has approved two new members and reappointed a current member to the Sussex County Board of Adjustment.
At its June 18 meeting, council unanimously approved the appointment of Kevin Carson of Seaford and Jeff Chorman of Milford and reappointed Ellen Magee of Selbyville. All three-year terms run through June 2022.
Carson, who has a long career in education and served as superintendent of the Cape Henlopen School District and the Woodbridge School District, is a realtor and works for the University of Delaware Institute for Public Administration.
Chorman, a lifelong Sussex County resident, is a partner in Jeff Chorman Inc. Aerial Spraying headquartered in Milton.
During their public interview, both said they looked forward to learning more about the board’s role in the county land-use process. The board, which meets two times a month, rules on variances and special-use exceptions.
“I have a great deal to learn and look forward to start the training process,” Carson said.
Chorman, who said he owns residential and commercial property in the county and has taken an application through the Sussex County and Kent County land-use processes, said, “But I still have a lot to learn.”
Magee was appointed to the board in 2017 and nominated for reappointment by District 5 Councilman John Rieley.
Carson was nominated by District 1 Councilman Mike Vincent and Chorman was nominated by District 3 Councilman I.G. Burton.
John Mills of Laurel, board chairman, and Dale Callaway of Milton have retired from the board after serving since 1992.
