Governor’s Weekly Message: Delaware State Fair – Our Agricultural Tradition

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | News | Date Posted: Friday, July 27, 2012




HARRINGTON – The Governor delivers his weekly message from this year’s Delaware State Fair, a great agricultural tradition which showcases one of the state’s most important industries.

“Agriculture is a significant Delaware industry and poultry is the biggest of all,” said the Governor.  “ 75% of the money in Delaware agriculture is poultry with more than 11,000 jobs in that industry.  It’s been important in our past; it’s important right now and it’s going to continue to be an important industry in our future.  Having young kids, our future farmers, learn from the ground up means we’re going to be well positioned to grow Delaware’s agriculture industry, as we all work together to keep moving Delaware forward.”

At noon every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form.  The message is available on:
