State Representative Sean Lynn has announced on his Facebook page that he will not be running for Attorney General, and will instead run for reelection as the Representative of the 31st RD.
While I am extremely grateful for the confidence placed in me by many of my fellow Delawareans, who believe that my service to this State could include taking on this vital role, the unfortunate truth is that the timing of such an arduous campaign is simply not right for me, my family, my “work family”, or my Clients.
Mr. Lynn also has his own law practice in Dover.
