New Castle, DE – In an effort to improve transparency and accessibility in government, County Executive Matthew Meyer is continuing his “County in Your Community” work days with stops this month in Middletown on May 16 and Hockessin on May 31. These visits follow his first community work day last month in Wilmington where Meyer met with residents during office hours in his downtown Wilmington office and held individual visits and a roundtable discussion with local start-ups at the technology co-working space The Mill.
“Community work days help ensure that our County government is accessible in every part of New Castle County,” County Executive Meyer said. “We must engage directly and regularly with local residents, civic leaders, service providers and entrepreneurs as we work to build a county government that is transparent, efficient and responsive to all our people. I urge local residents to plan to stop in and meet with me this month in Middletown and Hockessin.”
