Governor John Carney | Office of the Governor | The Economy | Date Posted: Thursday, January 18, 2018



WILMINGTON, Del.Delaware Governor John Carney (D) and Delaware’s congressional delegation, U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons (both D-Del.), Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-Del.), Mayor of Wilmington Mike Purzycki, and New Castle County Executive Matthew Meyer issued the following statement on Amazon’s second North American headquarters:

“Of course we are disappointed that Amazon has not chosen Delaware as a finalist location for its second North American headquarters. But we used this opportunity to showcase all the options in Delaware not just for Amazon, but for any business looking for a location to set down roots and grow. In that respect, Delaware’s effort – which brought together leaders in the public and private sectors to promote our great state – was a resounding success. Going forward, we’ll do everything we can to support Philadelphia’s application, to help bring Amazon to our region.”
