Lisa Diller is a long time resident of Newark and the former pastor of the Christiana Presbyterian Church in historic Christiana Village. Lisa Diller is married to John Tobin. Lisa and John attended the University of Delaware as undergraduates and they returned to the community because they thought it would be a great place to raise their family. They live with their daughter Mei in Newark.


Lisa's experience with both nonprofit organizations and government agencies gives her management experience and an understanding of the importance of constituent services. She served as the administrator for the State of Delaware's Office of Volunteerism where she managed a multimillion dollar budget and is a former member of the Governor's Commission on Community and Volunteer Service. She also holds a doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary and teaches at several local colleges.


Lisa's objectives are to provide a cost effective and responsive service delivery, promote sustainable growth, and develop regional partnerships to bring jobs and transportation to residents.
