Clark sweeps out the upper
floor of county government

Just four hours after being sworn in as county executive, Paul Clark announced that he had taken a broom to the top echelon of county government. County attorney Gergg Wilson was named acting chief administrative officer, the second ranking position, and Dennis Phifer was appointed chief of staff. Wendy Danner, County Council's lawyer, will be county solicitor and Dave Roberts, who heads the 9-1-1 emergency communications unit, will assume additional duties as acting director of public safety. Wilson replaces Rick Gregory, Wilson succeeds Nicole Majeski and Danner takes over from Carol Dulin. While announcing the moves in an e-mail to county employees on Nov. 16 Clark reiterated his intention to retain most senior management at least until the turn of the year.
