County Executive Meyer announces addition of CJ Bell to executive team

New Castle, DE – New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer today announced his appointment of C.J. Bell to the position of Executive Assistant. Bell is an entrepreneur who has a special passion for increasing the millennial presence in the State of Delaware. In 2018, he founded The Connect, a grassroots networking group geared towards supporting millennial retention in the State of Delaware. 


Bell recently held the position of Campaign Coordinator for Governor John Carney. Prior to that, Bell worked as Staff Assistant for Delaware’s senior United States Senator, Tom Carper. There he assisted and managed events and programs for the City of Wilmington, as well as created outreach programs for Delaware’s millennial population.


“At New Castle County, we want the best and the brightest working for our government,” County Executive Meyer said. “C.J. fits that bill. We’re looking forward to putting his skills, especially his entrepreneurial-oriented mind, to work for the people of our community.”


Bell will be involved in special projects and support economic development efforts in the County.


“I’m excited for the opportunity that the New Castle County Government and County Executive Meyer have provided,” Bell said. “I am honored to join such a talented and efficacious group of public service-minded individuals. Our next generation of leaders are attracted to areas that provide an entrepreneurial-friendly atmosphere. I am really eager to hit the ground running in seeing how we can build the next millennial hub in Delaware’s most populous county.”


A native of Prince George’s County, Maryland, and raised in Washington, D.C., Bell came to Delaware as a student at UD, where he graduated in 2017 with degrees in Public Policy and Psychology.


Bell starts today.
