New Dewey Beach commissioner resigns

A new town commissioner in Dewey Beach is resigning after less than two months in office.

The Daily Times reports that Commissioner Ellen Danaher cited health concerns in a letter to commissioners released this month.

Mayor Diane Hanson says there is no deadline to fill the seat. The interim council member would fill an almost two-year term. Hanson says the council will likely not have a decision until the new year.

Danaher has been a Dewey Beach resident since the town's incorporation in 1981.
