LINCOLN – With a party switch to Republican, Lincoln resident Greg Fuller is seeking to return to the Sussex County register of wills post in this November’s election.
“When I was register of wills in the past, I used to take the office to the people in form of helpful tips, which were seminars that I did throughout the county,” said Mr. Fuller.
Mr. Fuller served as register of wills from 2008 to 2010, appointed by the Gov. Ruth Ann Minner to complete the term of Republican David Wilson, who won election to the state legislature as the 35th District representative.
Mr. Fuller says his seminars “specifically targeted our senior centers and civic organizations, basically explaining how important the will is and then helping them to understand what the process would be when they ever have to utilize the services of the Register of Wills Office.”
As a Democrat, Mr. Fuller sought to retain the register of wills post in the 2010 election but lost to Republican Cindy Green. He also ran for lieutenant governor in 2016 and Delaware House of Representatives in 2020 but was unsuccessful.
Ellen Magee has served as register of wills since she was appointed by Gov. John Carney in January 2021 to replace Cindy Green, who won election in November 2020 to represent Sussex County Council’s 2nd District.
Mr. Fuller filed Jan. 5. “I always believe in starting early,” he said.
Mr. Fuller said the reason he switched from Democrat to Republican is that he “has always been a conservative Democrat,” and at present the Democratic Party “is no place for conservative-type Democrats, people who believe in being fiscally sound and having certain moral standards.”
A U.S. Army veteran who served more than 20 years, Mr. Fuller has served the Georgetown Boys & Girls Club, Home of the Brave and other charitable orginizations in Delaware. He also is a member of the Ellendale Fire Department.
Mr. Fuller and wife Esther have been married for over 26 years. They have two sons.
