Susan Gay launches campaign for Rehoboth Beach City Commissioner

Press Release:

Let's Move the City Forward

REHOBOTH BEACH (May 17, 2017) – Susan Gay, a part-time resident active in many Rehoboth Beach initiatives, has declared her candidacy for City Commissioner in the August 12 election, focusing on the City's environment, quality of life, and the need for capital planning and budgeting. 

After vacationing here for many years, Ms. Gay and her husband, Jonathan Andrews, bought their home in 2014. Although she is a Pennsylvania resident, she spends much of her time in Rehoboth Beach, year round. Ms. Gay became involved almost immediately in civic affairs, first joining the board of the Rehoboth Beach Homeowners’ Association where one of her accomplishments was to redesign its website. Her proactive style has led to other board appointments, including Save Our Lakes Alliance and the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society, and she was most recently named co-chair of the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Trees. She's a familiar face at most City meetings.


“Based on my participation in Mayor & Commissioner’s meetings over the past 2+ years, I have a strong working knowledge of the process and various perspectives on the issues. I am inspired by City leaders and residents alike who have encouraged me to run for Commissioner,” said Gay. 

Following a 30-year career as an executive in the medical publishing industry, where she managed small and large business units, Ms. Gay now serves in an advisory role.  She is results-oriented, known for building consensus among diverse groups and for her leadership skills in strategic planning, analysis, and budgeting, all skills that will be effective in serving the residents, businesses, and visitors in Rehoboth Beach.


“I thrive on working as part of a team to achieve a shared vision. I'm impressed with the knowledge and commitment of the many talented people who have given selflessly of their time to serve the City and I look forward to the prospect of joining them to move the City forward.” Find out more at
