With the passing of State Representative Harold J. “Jack” Peterman yesterday, Governor Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities be flown at half-staff beginning the morning of Friday, August 12 as a mark of respect for Representative Peterman and his service to Delaware. Representative Peterman served in the Delaware House since 2010, representing the Milford and Kent County area. During his time in the legislature, Representative Peterman served as a member of the Agriculture, Housing & Community Affairs, Natural Resources and Veterans Affairs committees. Prior to his election as state representative, Representative Peterman served as a Kent County Levy Court Commissioner and President.
Services for Rep. Peterman will be held on Thursday, August 18, therefore flags should be returned to full staff the end of that day.
