WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Records show former Wilmington Mayor Dennis P. Williams didn’t write a single email from his city account while in office.

The News Journal (https://delonline.us/2j8BdeS) reported Wednesday that the newspaper filed a Freedom of Information Act request for four years of sent emails. The results yielded 11 messages sent from Williams‘ official email address: nine were sent automatically from Microsoft Outlook, one was a link related to the city code sent to a city assistant and one was a city message about pay stubs forwarded to Williams‘ personal email.

Williams didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Former Wilmington Mayor Jim Baker says lack of email use is “not unusual,” adding that he preferred to communicate via phone.

Williams‘ former chief of staff, Gary Fullman, says Williams likely delegated email responsibilities to a staff member.
