Elliot Jacobson was the Insurance Commissioners ever-present sidekick during the campaign. Seems that he is being sent packing without actually being sent packing.
Dear Honorable Members of the Senate and House of Representatives:
I am writing to inform you of a change in the staffing of my office. Yesterday, I announced the removal of Mr. Elliott Jacobson as Chief of Staff of the Department of Insurance and relieved him of all authority he held in that capacity. Mr. Michael Gould will assume this authority as acting Chief of Staff. Mr. Gould is an accomplished lawyer, a very capable administrator and brings strong people skills to this position. Mr. Jacobson will assume new duties in an advisory capacity. Mr. Jacobson has provided me with valuable counsel in the past and I will continue to avail myself of his services. His new role will not require any contact with members of the General Assembly. Please contact Deputy Commissioner Gene Reed or Mr. Gould about any existing or new matters pending before the General Assembly.
I look forward to forging a stronger bond with the General Assembly and serving the people of Delaware.
Very truly yours,
Karen Weldin Stewart, CIR-ML
Delaware Department of Insurance
