Dewey Hemilright was reappointed to the Mid Atlantic Fishery Management Council! Our Marine Fisheries Commission sent their recommendations to the Secretary of DENR and listed Dewey as the “preferred” candidate at the top of the list. However, when the recommendations went to the Governor, Dewey was moved to last on the list. The Governor’s letter to the US Secretary of Commerce, (actually to the Assistant Secretary for Fisheries), kept Dewey at the bottom. We lobbied hard for Dewey to be reappointed and are very pleased that the efforts paid off. The seat that Dewey fills is considered a commercial seat and the other two nominees are also excellent fishermen and great candidates. They are also members of NCFA. However, the learning curve for a new Council member is huge and Dewey’s experience will help address some very big issues over his term for the next 3 years. So congratulations to Dewey and a huge thank you to all who wrote letters and made phone calls on his behalf!​
