Sussex County is retaining its leadership and legal team for the year ahead.
County Council, at its Jan. 7 meeting, selected Councilman Michael H. Vincent, of Seaford, as president of the body for the 10th year in a row. Council reelected Councilman Irwin G. “I.G.” Burton, of Lewes, as vice president.
