  • Governor's Weekly Message Transcript: Giving Every Delawarean a Fair ShotWe will only reach our state’s potential if we unleash the potential of every Delawarean. But for too long we've given up on too many of our people. Our rate of incarceration is among the highest in the world, but instead of safer communities, we have high rates of recidivism.

We must give those who repay their debt to society a fair chance to successfully reintegrate into our state.2014-07-11 11:55:37

  • Governor's Weekly Message Transcript: Increasing College Access Among Delaware YouthA high school diploma alone won’t provide the opportunities our students deserve. For our young people to have the chance to make the most of their talents, we need to recognize that more than 60 percent of jobs will require some additional education or training. And while college is not the right option for everyone, we do have an obligation to ensure that no students are denied access to the best higher education for them because they can’t afford it or because they underestimate their potential. Yet that’s what’s happened. 2014-06-13 12:00:51

  • Governor's Weekly Message Transcript: Addressing the Effects of Climate ChangeClimate change threatens the future we want for ourselves and for generations to come. Rising sea levels along with more powerful and frequent storms like Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy put Delaware families and businesses at risk. Our largest industry – agriculture – faces severe conditions that harm crops. We know we can’t afford to see what happens next before we act. So we’re limiting future damage by nourishing beaches, repairing dikes and dams, and modernizing stormwater infrastructure. But we must also address the root causes of climate change and that means reducing carbon pollution from our power plants – the largest source of dirty emissions. 2014-06-06 11:58:25
