County's New Slogan:
'Sussex County is
Your Business Partner'

SC Online Publisher

GEORGETOWN -- Sussex County has a new economic slogan after council chose the slogan of a 9-year-old Laurel boy in a county-wide contest at its regular meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2002.

After narrowing down the entries to five finalists, council selected the submission of 9-year-old Matthew Parsons of Laurel: "Sussex County is Your Business Partner."

Parsons' submission will replace the 20-year-old county economic slogan, "Sussex County Means Business".

Parsons' entry beat out the other four finalists:

  • "There's no business like your business in Sussex County"
    Candice Evans, Age 17, 12th Grade, Indian River High School, Frankford

  • "Sussex County -- Your Business is our Pleasure"
    Robert Short, Age 8, Laurel

  • "Sussex County -- The Biggest Part of the First State"
    Jasmine Walter, Age 17, 11th Grade, Laurel High School

  • "Sussex County -- Taxes are Low, a Good Place to Grow"
    Jean Cherestal, Age 13, 8th Grade, Laurel Middle School

Parsons will receive a $100 U.S. Savings Bond, while the four runnersup will receive $50 savings bonds.

In Other Business ...
  • Council denied a request for a conditional use application for a professional office building northwest of Route 9 and southwest of Ebeneezer Branch Road. The 3-2 vote denied the application of Blair A. Jones.

  • Council honored Sussex Central High School student David R. Pepper III with a proclamation recognizing his achievement of becoming an Eagle Scout.
