Attorney, sports writer, Gettysburg College women’s rugby coach and television host - 58-year-old Gettysburg native Jeff Cook has a diverse resume.

Today, his resignation as Adams County Chief Public Defender, the job that has likely demanded most of his time since 1987, becomes official.

Congratulations to Mr. Cook for his professional and conscientious service as public defender. Adams County was extremely fortunate to have had the benefit of his service and experience. He deserves the gratitude of all the citizens of Adams County.-

I write to wish Jeff well too. I was a DA among you for a while, and found Jeff a worthy and ethical adversary. Always a gentleman too. It is not easy being a public defender, and Jeff did a great job.
