Today, Governor Jack Markell announced the latest step in his administration’s support to improve upon the working climate in State government and toward ensuring that, as Delaware’s largest employer, the state becomes a model for addressing any form of workplace discrimination.
Governor Markell today ordered both the U.S. and State flags to be flown at half-staff in memory of fallen Wilmington firefighters Lt. Christopher Leach and Senior Firefighter Jerry Fickes. Both firefighters died this morning serving their community and fellow Delawareans valiantly, while battling a blaze in Wilmington. Flags are to remain at half-staff until further […]
Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell encourages all Delawareans to take time now to prepare for natural disasters and other emergency situations, and reviews new resources available to assist them through the interactive website www.PrepareDE.org provided by state public health and emergency management agencies.
Severe weather, natural disasters, and public health emergencies can threaten the safety of our people, homes, and communities. As Governor, I’ve observed how fortunate we are to have so many exceptional public servants hard at work keeping us safe during rain, wind, and snow events, as well as other emergencies. They’re law enforcement and other first responders, emergency management staff, transportation workers, public health workers, and other social service providers across Delaware, who are well-prepared to serve us during times of need.
Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell highlights the state’s efforts to ensure that every Delawarean has the opportunity to graduate from high school. That commitment extends to adults without a high school diploma who recognize the importance of education in opening pathways to good jobs and career success in today’s economy.
