DUI checkpoint set for Friday April 13th in Wilmington.
The Governor talks about child abuse awareness and Delaware’s month-long campaign designed to urge people to see the signs and make the call. A majority of child abuse incidents go unreported.
Our children rely on us for so much – guidance, support, safety. We have a tremendous opportunity to be a positive force as they navigate through childhood and build a foundation for their future. But it’s more than an opportunity – it’s our responsibility. Children look to us to be role models, to make good choices, to be champions for what’s best for them. This responsibility is most critical when it comes to their safety and well-being.
Governor Jack Markell talks about the state’s STEM Council and the international competition for jobs. One of the things companies look for when considering where to invest is a gifted workforce, which depends on our public schools. The jobs of the future are in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM subjects.
During some particularly challenging times these last few years, our state has made clear – again and again – that whether it was meeting the challenge of the federal race to the top contest, or trying to reopen the shuttered refinery at Delaware City, or tackling rapidly rising pension and health care costs, or putting our state back on the path to financial stability – Delawareans come together to fight alongside each other FOR things that matter, instead of AGAINST each other over trivial issues.
