State Senator Sarah Mcbride
was selected as one of 19 leaders from across the country to join the NewDEAL (Developing Exceptional American Leaders), a selective national network of state and local elected officials.
McBride joins the group at a time when state and local leaders are on the frontlines of responding to the pandemic and as they take on a critical role in implementing the American Rescue Plan recently signed by President Biden. The new law will send hundreds of billions of dollars to state and local governments. NewDEALers are supporting each other in addressing the many challenges created and exacerbated by COVID-19 by innovating, convening virtually, and sharing good ideas. The NewDEAL has launched a database of policies and programs that address the wide-ranging impacts of the pandemic and is publishing recommendations for building back better from this crisis.
McBride and her peers in the new class of leaders were recognized for their
unwavering commitment to expanding opportunity as they work to build back better in their communities and reject the idea that policymakers can or should want to turn the clock back to a prior era. These leaders’ work will build on policy recommendations that NewDEAL Leaders help develop, including the release of reports on education and climate change, as well as recommendations from the NewDEAL Forum Renewing American Task Force
, which has provided guidance for state and local leaders to address affordable housing, child care, broadband access, entrepreneurship, mass transit, and the social safety net. Leaders are currently participating in NewDEAL’s Build Back Better series
, which supports them in addressing simultaneous crises around public health, the economy, racial equity and climate change.
“We are in a unique moment for state and local leaders as we must find solutions for the urgent challenges created by COVID-19 while not losing focus on longer-term issues that will also affect Delaware’s economic security for decades to come,” said McBride
. “I look forward to sharing lessons with and learning from other leaders who are setting the standard for effective governance, and I am excited to be part of NewDEAL’s efforts to expand opportunities for Americans in communities nationwide.”

have joined Northrop Realty. “We’re known for our powerhouse culture at Northrop Realty,” said Creig Northrop, founder and CEO of Northrop Realty. “We’re expanding one of the most professional, effective brokerages in the industry, and we’re excited to welcome Allison and Jim.

leads a team of seven real estate agents and serves customers in Bethany Beach. The Sussex County Association of Realtors named Stine Realtor of the Year in 2016, and Delaware Today named her a 5 Star Realtor 10 times. She is a certified residential specialist, the highest designation awarded to residential sales associates.
“An estimated one-in-five U.S. adults either changed their residence due to the pandemic or know someone who did, according to a Pew Research Center survey. That is further fueled by interest rates that are at a 50-year low today,” Stine said. “People with the ability to live and work from home are not leaving their beach house. If they can live anywhere, why not the beach? Northrop Realty’s expansion plants the Northrop flag in the sand and shows the community that Northrop istruly committed to serving the growing Delaware beach market.”

leads an office that includes more than 10 real estate agents and serves customers from Millsboro, and will focus on the growing market there, marked by increased demand from buyers, new home construction and a rapidly selling inventory of existing homes.
“What excites me most about working with Northrop Realty is having my name associated with the brand that delivers,” Lattanzi said. “I will be able to recruit top agents because I can look them in the eye and say, ‘This is going to be the best move you’ve ever made.’ I can say that now from experience and know that I’m telling the truth. It’s not a sales pitch; it’s a promise.”
Anne Harper, executive director of Delaware Nature Society, announced she is retiring as of June 30, 2021. After a total of four years of service in two different roles, Harper will be moving out of state to join family.
"I am so grateful to the DelNature board of directors, staff and community for the opportunity to serve as executive director for the past three and half years,” said Harper. “The last 14 months of the pandemic have prompted me to re-think my personal priorities and I have decided to move to North Carolina to be nearer my children and grandchildren. As Delaware moves into a 'new normal', DelNature will remain committed to environmental education, conservation, and advocacy. I am excited to see where the organization goes in the future."
Dawn Rittenhouse, DelNature board chair added, “On behalf of the entire Delaware Nature Society community, I want to thank Anne for her leadership, especially through the incredibly challenging pandemic. The organization is in a strong position because of her leadership. The Board is committed to maintaining this position of strength, grateful to the many staff, donors and volunteers who support our mission, and look forward to building toward an even stronger future.”
The board will immediately launch a national search for a new executive director.
