Preserving and using these natural resources provides tremendous opportunities to enhance the quality of life in our state and strengthen our economy. I invite you to explore the Delaware Bayshore and its wild and scenic landscape. With your help, we’ll create an appreciation of our precious natural resources, while continuing to grow our economy, and that will keep Delaware moving forward.

Events held across the state were meant to showcase the quality of the products our farm families grow, along with the tremendous impact their businesses have on our economy. Supporting local farmers and enjoying the fruits of their labor means you get to enjoy some of the freshest products possible, while continuing to support one of the oldest industries in our state and that will keep Delaware moving forward.

The diversity of Delawareans has always been a source of great pride and strength. This Iftar dinner celebrates that diversity while recognizing the Muslim community in Delaware, which has given so much to the state and the region through a spirit of kindness and compassion as well as through a commitment to serving all of those in need.

As I’ve traveled throughout the state, I hear a common message from residents: they want to play an active role in revitalizing struggling neighborhoods. They’re interested in being a part of the solution, and not dwelling on challenges, and their enthusiasm presents an incredible opportunity for the future of our towns, and for the future of our state. If we tap into the energy of the many selfless Delawareans who want to give their time to help friends, families and neighbors, we will keep Delaware moving forward.

With ninety-seven percent of the people in our prisons eventually being released, we know that one of the best ways to build a safer state is to improve the chance that those who were involved with our criminal justice system can get a job when they return to their communities. By removing barriers to rehabilitation and employment, ex-offenders are more likely to realize success and less likely to re-offend, allowing them to become productive, taxpaying citizens in our communities – and that will keep Delaware moving forward.

These employers helped our state outpace the nation in job growth, and we’re committed to helping them realize their potential. We have a responsibility to ensure they have the support and environment they need to thrive. By supporting their efforts to offer needed goods and services, we encourage job growth and strengthen our economy – and that keeps Delaware moving forward.

Legislation I signed this past week paves the way for a careful process to redraw lines and reduce the number of school districts in Wilmington. The laws follow recommendations of the Wilmington Education Advisory Committee I established last year to give the community a stronger voice in the future of their schools. By seizing this moment to transform Wilmington’s schools, we will create greater opportunities for students and families to reach their potential – and that will keep Delaware moving forward.

When people are financially secure, they can buy a home, pay for college, start a business, or save for retirement. Providing our communities with the tools people of all ages need to learn how to succeed financially will empower our residents, strengthen our economy, and will keep Delaware moving forward.

The 20 Delaware students who are in China taking part in a summer study abroad have been posting reflections of their trip, as well as a blog to keep track of where and what they're doing. Take a look!

We must remember how fortunate we are for the generations of men and women who have chosen to dedicate their lives to serving and protecting Delawareans. The greatest honor we can pay to our fallen officers and their families is to keep their memories alive, support the loved ones they have left behind, and show gratitude to those who follow in their footsteps.

Beau was a model for determinedly pursuing success, while also demonstrating exceeding humility and grace – a dedicated public servant who had a fierce devotion to family above all else. While Beau Biden left us far too soon, his accomplishments, his example, and his love leave an everlasting imprint on our state.

Funding through the DDD grant program is the extra boost needed to kickstart development and the return on the State’s investment is enormous. By incentivizing development in our downtowns, we’ll strengthen our economy and revitalize our neighborhoods and that will keep Delaware moving forward.

Jack Markell brings innovative public and private sector experience to the Office of Governor. He began his career in the private sector helping lead the wireless technology revolution as the 13th employee at Nextel (a name he coined), where he served as Senior Vice President for Corporate Development. His other business experience includes a senior management position at Comcast Corporation, work as a consultant with McKinsey and Company and as a banker at First Chicago Corporation. He was elected Delaware State Treasurer in 1998, winning three consecutive terms, including his last re-election in November of 2006 with an overwhelming 70 percent of the vote. As State Treasurer, Governor Markell worked tirelessly to improve the lives of Delawareans through innovative programs aimed at cutting spending and improving fiscal responsibility. He has been recognized in Delaware and across the country as a leader in promoting policies to help all people achieve their economic potential. As Governor, he has helped open shuttered manufacturing facilities, won President Obama's Race to the Top competition for progress in public school reform, and signed new laws to drive improvements in the economy, environment, and education. Governor Markell has also worked to advocate on behalf of Delawareans and bring national attention to his home state through national leadership roles at the National Governors Association (NGA), Democratic Governors Association (DGA), the National Assessment Governing Board, and the National Board of Directors for Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG).
