Ruth Ann Minner announced Jan. 3 that she will nominate Carl C. Danberg as Department of Correction com- missioner to replace retiring Commissioner Stan Taylor, who leaves Feb. 1. "Carl's prior experience as deputy principal assistant to the commissioner at the Department of Correction makes him uniquely qualified to lead this agency," Minner said. "He is familiar with not only the department but its staff, and that, combined with his extensive legal knowledge, will help to ensure a smooth transition after Commissioner Taylor's retirement." Danberg, 42, of Newark, has most recently served as Delaware's attorney general. Minner appointed him to the posi- tion in 2005 to replace M. Jane Brady, who was sworn in as a judge. Prior to that, he served as chief deputy attorney general since August 2004. Before his recent stint in the Attorney General's Office, Danberg spent eight years as deputy principal assistant to the commissioner at the Delaware Department of Correction. He was a deputy attorney gener- al from 1994 to 1996 and worked in private practice before that. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Delaware and a major in the Judge Advocate General's Corps in the Delaware Army National Guard. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware and a law degree from Widener University School of Law. He is a member of the Delaware State Bar Association, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court. "I am honored by the faith that the govemor has expressed in me and look forward to this new chal- lenge," Danberg said. "I hope to emulate Stan Taylor's strong moral land administrative leader- ship during my tenure at the Department of Correction." Minner's nomination is subject to confirmation by the Delaware State Senate.
