Governor’s Weekly Message: Fourth of July Freedoms
DOVER – In his weekly message, the Governor focuses on the freedoms we enjoy and celebrate this fourth of July at a time when the session of the Delaware General Assembly draws to conclusion.
“The signers of the Declaration of Independence did not take their signatures lightly. Hundreds of years later, it’s still that purpose and promise that guides us. It’s why – at least here in Delaware – we’re committed to reducing the size and scope of government when it infringes on those freedoms, but also committed to putting that government to work, to get people back to work, to give our kids the tools they need to succeed in their own pursuits of happiness as adults, and protect people’s health and safety,” said the Governor. “For now, and over the next few days, I hope you’ll join me at Fourth of July celebrations across the state to look back on the courage and wisdom of those signers of our Declaration of Independence and renew our shared commitment to those core values that brought our nation to life back then, and guide us together now, as we work together to keep Delaware, moving forward.”
