Governor’s Weekly Message: Happy New Year



(DOVER, DE) In his weekly message, Governor Markell says the new year gives us a chance to make some new resolutions, both personal and shared. The Governor shares some of his…
“Some of my personal resolutions are the kind I’m sure I share with many Delawareans such as my resolution to work off all those amazing cookies and slices of pie that seem to pop up between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. But some shared resolutions we can make together to try and help all Delawareans… like resolving to keep job creation our top priority; to fight to bring new jobs to our state and to help existing employers expand the number of Delawareans on their payrolls,” said the Governor. “We need to keep supporting our state’s small businesses, helping entrepreneurs turn innovations into jobs. And, we resolve to continue our efforts to make our public schools stronger; to work together with teachers, parents, students and the companies that will someday hire them; to ensure that kids graduate our schools ready to compete and win against students from all over the world. We resolve to remain sound stewards of our state’s resources, aligning our budget priorities with our state’s needs and commitments. We resolve to support our communities by spending time volunteering and learn from one another; to recognize that the areas where we’ll find agreement are so much greater than the areas where we’ll find conflict.”
“I think 2012 will be a more successful year if we keep these resolutions together,” said the Governor. “I look forward to working with you as we resolve together to keep Delaware moving forward.”
