Governor Markell focuses on jobs and making Delaware a better place to start and grow a business as the nation’s governors gather next week in Washington, D.C. for the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.
President Obama offered several compelling proposals in a State of the Union address that properly focused on jobs and the economy, Governor Jack Markell said shortly after the speech. “The President made clear that our nation’s most compelling need is to keep making progress on jobs and he offered a clear path forward,” Markell said.
This new Council recognizes the significance of faith-based organizations in addressing many significant social needs, and will work to establish partnerships between government agencies and faith-based organizations to help fight poverty, expand access to health care, promote education and improve public safety.
In his weekly message, Governor Markell says the new year gives us a chance to make some new resolutions, both personal and shared.
The holidays are a time for serious celebrations, and the start of the New Year is a time to get seriously focused. While many times during the last year tested our resolve, this weekend gives us a chance to make some new resolutions.
