  • Governor's Weekly Message Transcript: Reducing Home Utility Expenses While Protecting the EnvironmentAs temperatures drop, some Delawareans worry about utility bills that spike this time every year and their ability to keep their families warm during the winter season. Many households spend a large portion of their monthly income to heat poorly insulated homes, while drafty doors and windows allow heat to escape. That’s where Delaware’s Weatherization Assistance Program steps in to insulate and weather-proof homes at no cost to reduce the financial burden for low-income households, especially families with children, seniors, and individuals with disabilities.2016-12-02 15:44:10

  • Governor's Weekly Message Transcript: Giving Thanks Through Giving BackThe first Thanksgiving, which took place nearly 400 years ago, launched a tradition of coming together to give thanks, break bread, and deepen connections between neighbors. I hope that on this Thanksgiving weekend you have the opportunity to do the same. While I have always appreciated this opportunity to gather with family and friends and focus on all we have to be thankful for, as Governor, I’ve also had the privilege to better recognize the Delawareans who quietly work every day to make our communities stronger, with little fanfare. They are public employees, including service providers, public safety workers, educators, and many more, and all the support staff who make the impact of their collective work possible. They are the men and women in uniform who are deployed abroad in service to our state and country, and who respond to emergencies at home.2016-11-25 11:00:51
  • Governor's Weekly Message Transcript: Celebrating Delaware’s Thriving Tourism EconomyI’m Linda Parkowski, Delaware Tourism Director. Tourism is big business for Delaware. It’s a fact I share with people all over the state every day. Since 2009 tourism employment in Delaware is up 25 percent. The industry is currently responsible for 52,000 jobs in Delaware. It now produces $3 billion a year in economic impact for the state. That saves each Delaware household nearly $1,400 in taxes annually. This makes attracting visitors and their dollars to the state essential.2016-11-18 15:15:53

I said something then that remains true today: Even one homeless veteran is one too many. That’s why this week I was thrilled to announce that – after more than a year’s work with our local, state and federal partners – we have effectively ended veteran homelessness in our state.
