Per the meeting agenda for the first Commissioners meeting of 2022, Datte would be transferred from the Solicitor’s role at the Controller’s office. Datte has previously served as Commissioners’ Solicitor.

Commissioners will vote on the appointment on Wednesday.

Hobbs had been one of three County Solicitors but vacated the position when he was elected to Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in the November 2021 General Election.
