Sussex County Official Swearing In Ceremony

Sussex County    Today, prior to the usual Sussex County Council meeting, there was the official swearing-in of the newly elected, Sussex County officials.   First up was long time Councilman, George Cole. George Cole

Considering how long Mr. Cole has been a councilman, and how many times he has been sworn in, one might have thought he could recite the oath from memory.

Recorder of Deeds, Scott Dailey was sworn in for his second term, and may have been the smoothest of those taking the oath.

Lee. Sheriff  Lee was clearly overcome with emotions as he took the oath of office, having to choke back those emotions several times. In the end he thanked all for coming and stated how humbled he was by all the support he had received, and promised to do his best to serve the people of Sussex. robert lee 1   All of the officials were sworn in by the Honorable T.
