Wilmington mayor's chief of staff to resign
Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams' chief of staff is stepping down to start a law firm.
Cleon Cauley will leave the post at the end of the year. He's worked under Williams since 2013, serving as chief of staff after heading up the public works department.
Williams has appointed Gary Fullman to start as acting chief of staff on Jan. 1. Fullman did the job under former Wilmington mayor Daniel Frawley, as well as serving as director of finance. He's currently the city's procurement manager in the finance department.
Before that, Fullman was CFO for DelDOT, PR manager for Delmarva Power and a VP of the Delaware Trust Company.
In a statement, Mayor Williams calls Fullman a "well seasoned and highly respected government executive." And he thanks Cauley for helping guide the city through budget and union negotiations and the development of a new strategic plan.
