Robert Holston appointed to Georgetown town council

GEORGETOWN – The town of Georgetown’s fourth ward council vacancy has been filled.

Robert (Bob) L. Holston, Jr., was sworn in to fill the council seat for Ward 4 Wednesday evening at town council meeting. He takes the seat previously held by David Anderson, who resigned in February.

Mr. Holston is a lifetime Delmarva Peninsula resident. He grew up in Chincoteague, VA and currently resides in the Village of Cinderberry with his wife Barbara.

“I have made this town my home,” said Mr. Holston. “I like it here and want the best for Georgetown.”

“We welcome Bob to the council and look forward to his energy as the town continues its forward progress,” said Georgetown Mayor Bill West.

Mr. Holston brings many years of experience, having worked for both Northrop Grumman and as a government contract employee for NASA at the Wallops Island facility.

As far as specific areas he wants to focus on, Mr. Holston stated “although I consider myself a rookie, everyone’s a rookie at some point, and this is a great opportunity to learn and give back to the town of Georgetown.”

Mr. Holston was sworn in by the Honorable Peter B.  Jones, a judge with the Delaware Family Court.
