A Delmar resident and Eastern Shore native, Gibb offers voters a viable candidate with more than 20 years of experience as a business leader and community volunteer.

We need to improve our town’s business climate to bring in more jobs, work on our water issues, and reduce crime. At the same time, we need to keep an eye on preserving the small town charm that attracts us to living in Delmar.”
