Chipman "Chip" Flowers, Jr. is the current Delaware Treasurer. Flowers, a Democrat, was first elected in November 2010 and took office in January 2011.[1]

Flowers was retiring rather than run for re-election in 2014.[2] He had originally planned to seek a second term in 2014 but bowed out of the race in August following allegations he had harassed a former female deputy-treasurer.[3]. Although the charges were dropped with one week to go before primary election day, Flowers had already withdrawn his bid for re-nomination, clearing the path to the November ballot for would-be sole primary challenger Sean Barney.[4][5]

Biography

Before becoming treasurer, Flowers ran Flowers Counsel Group, LLC, which he founded in 2006. The firm specializes in mergers, acquisitions, procurement law, and advising businesses on contractual agreements for major purchases.[6] Flowers has also worked as a Democratic political analyst for the news program Delaware Tonight on WHYY-TV, and as a staff attorney for the firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP. Flowers holds an M.P.A. from Harvard University, an M.B.A. and J.D. from Georgetown University, and a bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania.[7]
