Governor Markell Thanks Vice Chancellor Parsons for His Service to Delaware

Wilmington, DE – Governor Jack Markell today thanked Vice Chancellor Donald F. Parsons, Jr. for his many years of service to the State of Delaware. Last week, Vice Chancellor Parsons informed the Governor of his decision not to seek reappointment to a second 12-year term. Vice Chancellor Parsons’s term expires on October 22, 2015.

“The Vice Chancellor’s decision to retire from the Court is a substantial loss to both the Court of Chancery and our state,” Governor Markell said. “I am pleased the Vice Chancellor has indicated he will continue serving the public after he leaves the court and that his contributions to our State, already significant, will continue. I wish the Vice Chancellor the best of luck in his future endeavors.”
