I wasn’t expecting this! Rob Petree, a now former reporter for Delaware 105.9, is the new Executive Assistant for Delaware State Auditor Kathy McGuiness. I find this to be a very interesting choice on McGuiness’ part. I am not against this choice either.
Petree is a good guy and, as a reporter for 105.9, he wasn’t afraid to go after folks and get the real story. We need more of that in Delaware and I’ll miss Petree’s reporting. I have no doubt he will do a great job with McGuiness. That office has been very quiet and I’m curious to see what comes out of it in the coming months and years. But hiring a reporter as your Executive Assistant lends credibility to her campaign promise to bring more transparency to that office.
